Imagine finding a photo album on the street. You open it and see
the faces of people you have never seen before; pictures of holidays,
familiar gestures and poses, strangers smiling at you as if you
were a relative or close friend, as if these pictures were intended
for you… Doesn’t it feel strange, eerie even, to become
so involved in a stranger’s life like this, quite by chance?
On a stage which opens and closes, folds out and folds together
on two or three levels between now and then, eight people tell stories
and sing the soundtrack to their lives and their time. Nothing connects
them. What is it, then, that has brought them together?
Following her classical dance training in Budapest, Eszter
worked in France with various choreographers, 1992-2000.
In 2001 she created “What a Body You Have, Honey” and
with Xavier Le Roy the piece “Giszelle”. She created
“Reproduction” in Podewil (Berlin), where she was artist
in residence and received the Villa Médici’s "Hors
les Murs" award in 2004. In 2005 she staged "Magyar Tàncok"
in Lyon, followed by "Nvsbl" in 2006. In 2007 she presented
"AND THEN" and with A. Martinez the a-capella concert
/performance, "Without you I am Nothing".
