Projects and programs for the 2019/2020 season
Rita Góbi is the choreographer of our first premiere in the season. Sniffle&giggle premiers on 15th of September from 7 pm in the Háromszék Dance Studio.
Rita Góbi is a dancer, choreographer and dance teacher who has participated in numerous residency programs across Europe and the United States. In 2017 he was included in Aerowaves Twenty18 Young Creator and in 2018 he was awarded the Lábán Rudolf Prize. His style is characterized by minimalism and precise choreography.
The production evokes the past through an image-like, fragmentary and sometimes elusive structure of memories. By getting into their ancestors’ skin, the performers are showing us an era before they were born. Sometimes the scenes stop suddenly; the motion of the vigorous body becomes repetitive and the misshapen, heavy, rugged movements of the old-aged pass into abstract dance. The states of childhood and agedness play with each other. The rich scale of movements runs along a toddler’s unsteady steps and an elderly man’s wobbly walk.
The piece reveals the relations within the community, of the time spent together and next to each other from which the soloistic scenes emerge. Past and present are superposed by the microscopic examination of human life’s small moments. The performance explores a time that expands between life’s two endpoints - the first and last moment of immobility.
Rita Góbi directs for the first time at our company. Composer David Szegő, light designer Zuzana Režná, costume designer Marie Gourdain, playwright Anna Zsigó. The production is sustained by The Administration of the National Cultural Fund (AFCN) and the Bethlen Gábor Foundation.

Ermira Goro, member of the DV8 Physical Theater in the UK, premiered in Sepsiszentgyörgy in 2017 in the frame of FLOW2 Festival - featured in Dandelion, a coproduction of Onassis Cultural Center. This year she returns as choreographer. Variations: No. 1 is a production that seeks to gain a true understanding of oneself and the other through the language of dance and physical theater. She directs for the first time in Romania. The performance is sustained by the Bethlen Gábor Foundation.
