Csaba Molnár/ Emese Cuhorka: MASTERPIECE
Shifting postcards from the continuous rush of restlessness.
The body’s functions slip between concrete and abstract meaning and are transformed
Borrowing inspiration from the Bauhaus theatre. This piece explores ways for the body to
shed cultural inscriptions and symbols which have been projected into it over the course of
time. Employing objects as costumes that impede movement and give it a mechanical
tinge, the body is required to reforge its autonomy in a flurry of functional obstructions.
The body as a masterwork contains the recollection of practice and is the terrain for
recalling at the same time. It defines the self and all of it’s possibilities. Modifying the body
is a way to manipulate the surroundings and to summon the freedom to redefine.

Julien Gros - L'aisance des petites choses
In the show, Julien moves between the two extremes of directions: the horizontality of dance and the verticality of the Chinese pole. This mechanical opposition represents nicely a similar opposition on the spiritual level. Julien gets on a roller coaster of emotions, which makes him get into a heightened mental state in which he risks his own physical wellbeing in each moment. He copes with intense challenges in order to put his mind in order, and to build bridge between a dualistic personality of the character. It is a cathartic experience, in which the audience gets free of internal restraints together with the performer as he acts on bigger and bigger stakes.
