After the stripped down, radical corporality of Dawn (2013), Adrienn Hód's production made in 2014 is physicality woven into a chain of emotion. The subconscious opens in a trance invoked by continuous movement. Splinters of sexuality, arias of impulsive gasps, a game of robust yet refined and sensitive humor, negating taboos. The torsos of four dancers rendered as a tangling of their inner histories. A negotiation between heaven and earth, and a triumph over prosaic urban reality.
The Hodworks was established in 2007 by Adrienn Hód. Alongside permanent creative members, artists are also invited to co-operate with this international contemporary troupe. It is a creative group that is based on independent artistic creativity with great degree of concentration and a sensitive and provocatively fresh approach. At the centre of their work is a body free of all obstacles, intermediaries, decorations, props, and theatrical devices. Performances are always headed in an unknown, new, progressive direction. One consistent quality is a virtuosic language of movement established and refined through many hours of experimental work. The main tool of the rehearsal process is improvisation, which they re-invent in performance within a carefully planned structure. Choreographic structures are marked by a delicate teeter from abstract presentation to specific meaning and back. A Hodworks performance dilates the senses and thespirit of the audience; it tempts them, but is never aggressive. It causes one to question and to doubt. It does not compromise. It does not aim to please.
