Friday, 02.06.2023, 19:00, Divadlo Štúdio tanca

Is free will real, or is it just an illusion created by chance in the course of human evolution? Is the human race doomed? Are we cursed or blessed by the illusion of our own ego? These are the questions László Fülöp’s choreography seeks to answer in the dance performance At the horizon of no return. The work created for the dance company of Divadlo Štúdio tanca deeply contemplates and reects the situation and condition in which civilization, the Earth, the Universe currently nds itself. As a starting point for his reection he takes the observation of the body, which consciously or unconsciously reacts to given events.

“On the Horizon of No Return is the result of the vision of the new leadership of Divadlo Štúdio tanca, an established Slovak dance company, to create dance works as reflections of current life. Exploring the forms of human behaviour, the possibility of their communication, the creative team comes with a sincere enquiry into the future of our civilization. Dancers with different backgrounds, experiences and physicality are united by a new and convincing quality of interpretation.”

László Fülöp

László Fülöp born on the 16th of December, 1987 in Budapest, Hungary the most tender bartender, an introvert shop assistant, also a dancer, performer & choreographer founder of Timothy and the Things I graduated at Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy in 2010. Since then, as a freelancer I’ve worked and collaborated with many artists and dance companies from Hungary and abroad – Vladislava Malá, Adrienn Hód, Eléonore Valére Lachky, Éva Karczag, Klári Pataky Dance Company, Zoltán Nagy, Eva Duda Dance Company, Finita la Commedia, and from 2012 on, I’ve been mainly dancing for the Danish Granhoj Dans Company. In the meantime I’ve developed my own choreographic works under the name of Timothy and the Things. In 2016 I’ve got Viktor Fülöp Scholarship as an emerging young choreographer and in 2018 received a grant from the Gaubier’s Fund as a dancer, performer. The core topic of my interest revolves around exploring and analysing, from every conceivable angle, issues relating to all forms of human social behaviour and communication, completely without generalizations or prejudices, in a simple, pure and personal way. I find extremely important to let people see and understand those inner processes which influence and guide their acts and decisions on an subconscious level.
