YOU-TOPIA
Choreographed and performed by: Katalin Lengyel, Szabolcs Tóth-Zs.
How can a big digital hand dance and fight with a woman? We’re about to show you! In „You-Topia” a magic world unfolds where Mortal Combat meets Swan’s Lake and the mind-blowing visual effects perfectly match the movements of the dancer. Watch carefully as all the visuals are made live in front of you! We bet you’ve never seen anything like this before! It started with romance but turned into a battle. Our heroine is asked for a dance, however she finds herself in a situation where she has to fight in order to find her way out. Due to all the struggling, she understands: she has to be the master of her own life. This spectacular piece of the award winning BANDART Productions is talking about power. The protagonist of the live new media and dance performance is the citizen who is at times forced to play a game where she is compelled to execute different roles. She finally finds her self-awareness and starts to create a whole new world around herself. The shorter version of this piece was commissioned by the World Forum for Democracy and was premiered in the Council of Europe in Strasbourg in 2014.
Co-producers: World Forum for Democracy 2014, Golem Theatre, L1 Association, Workshop Foundation
