"Yes, there is this need for physical exuberance in all of us." (Deutschlandfunk)


Unusual Symptoms / Adrienn Hód (Bremen)  

06 – 07 Jun 2023 | Potsdamer Tanztage 2023Dance / performance

Ten dancers, with and without disabilities, warm up on stage. They invite us to discover their danced personalities, explore the capabilities of the human body, and different ways of being together. Initially focused on their individuality, they eventually find themselves together in a space of exchange, filled with goodwill and self-confidence. With exuberance and a good dose of self-irony, Harmonia questions physical diversity, the status of the body, and hierarchies in society, but also the supposedly progressive forms of contemporary dance. Between spontaneity and abolition of dance conventions, the piece challenges the audience and confronts it with prejudices. Choreographer Adrienn Hód playfully succeeds in realigning our gaze.

Harmonia has been awarded the Rudolf Lábán Prize 2023 for the best dance production in Hungary on May 10, 2023 in Budapest! The Rudolf Lábán Prize is one of the most important dance prizes in Hungary, it was established in 2005 by the Trafó and the MU Theatre and has since been awarded annually by a critics:inside jury to outstanding personalities and works of the dance scene.
