Bodies that are exposed, that explore, sense, crack, fall apart, rebuild themselves, recover… How much does the body express its personal and cultural content through dance? How does it show its own truest essence when words don’t help or confuse? The dancers‘ origin stories were first shaped through dialogues between movement and text, then the texts were left unspoken. With the help of their ancestors shouting or whispering through their cells, Anna Biczók and her dancers searched for what it means to be a woman in Austrian, Hungarian and post-soviet RussianUkrainian contexts. Women next door, on the same side or on different ones – it’s a delicate area.
