Gyula Cserepes

Gyula Cserepes was born in Yugoslavia, grew up in a Hungarian speaking family and began to dance at the age of 8. He studied traditional dances at Fóti Népművészeti Szakközép – és Szakiskola and contemporary dance at the Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy. First he was the member of Central-Europe Dance Theatre, then he joined En-Knap Group in Ljubljana.

Over the past years he performed with the Swiss Cie József Trefeli and Cie Philippe Saire in many countries of the world from Brazil to Iran, Australia to South-Korea, Mozambique to Mexico. His own performances move on a range from site-specific to interactive dance performance. The base of his work is rhythm as a universal language: combining his folk- and contemporary dance background, he creates innovative works, which are researching the essence of dance and its essential role in human life.
