Hygin Delimat – Beton
Hygin Delimat (AT/PL) was selected by the LLB partner danceWEB to participate in a residency in the frame of the Performance, Architecture and Landscape symposium, organized in partnership with WASP Studios, hosted by 4Culture Association.
He performs his production "Beton" on 28.06. at WASP Bucharest after a residency there from 19 – 29 June 2019.
”We are inspired by the greyscale vibe that arises in places conditioned by misinterpreted modernism. The beton blocks of flats are supposed to be the embodiment of Le Corbusier ideals. Instead, they are a relic of the era of absurdity. It is beton that constraints wishes, dreams and goals, that inhibits human interactions and provokes agression. On the other hand, beton is where urban culture becomes a form of expression and escape, a loud response of the young. We allow this unique historic substance to sink into our bodies, transforming ourselves into a broad landscape of emotions.”
Hygin Delimat is a choreographer and performer who lives and works in Austria and internationally. He is the artistic director of Body Architects, a new interdisciplinary performing arts company with dance at its core. He studied at the Anton Bruckner University (Movement Research M.A.), while his choreographic works have been produced and performed in Austria and other European countries (he has also been involved in co-productions, in different Artists-in-Residence programs). Particularly interested in interdisciplinary, Hygin works with artists from various art fields, including contemporary composition, visual arts or new media. In his artistic work as a performer, he integrates philosophical approaches to urban movement art and somatic methods.
Martyna Lorenc is a performing artist, choreographer and researcher in the fields of arts, science and social issues. Born in Poland, she is currently sharing time between Poland and Austria. She is educated in cognitive science (MA) and contemporary dance (BA) and for the last years, she has worked on developing stage performances, creating experimental works and interdisciplinary research.
