Donnet - Szűcs - Szűcs: #3
3 moving images created by women in relationship with nature
a collective installation and a performance
The three artists invite you to an immersive installation and performance, merging their personal artistic practices and work to co-create a still act. Starting from their common vision of the connection between human body in motion and natural elements, they will invest inner and outer space and share with the audience this state of subtle presence to what is there.
One Two Tree by Victoria DONNET
A tree. A woman and a camera. Endlessly pink flowers.
An immersion. A journey to the wild feminine energy.
Victoria DONNET (FR)
A pluridisciplinary artist, Victoria Donnet invites cinema and dance to intertwine in original in situ performance projects and audiovisual works. Sustained by her training in contemporary dance at IFPRO (Paris), cinema at ESRA (Paris) and in Life Art Process at the Tamalpa Institute with Anna Halprin (California), she proposes a sensitive work concerning movement in all its dimensions, in association with the being and nature surrounding her. Her creations form part of her research involving space, matter, time and energy in dance: to dance the world and its images. She films dance, dances with the camera, creates choreography with the body as well as with the film-editing technique, and thereby opens up new fields of experimentation. In 2018/19 she facilitates videodance workshops to contemporary dancers in ACTS (Contemporary Dance School of Paris). She recently collaborates with Philippe Decouflé as the script and editor of his last short film "VIVALDIS", projected in January 2020 on the TV channel Canal +.
Mayflies by Dóra Ida SZŰCS
“Death is man’s most unique opportunity, claims Heidegger, my opportunity that makes me irreplaceable by others (nobody can die instead of me); what is more: death could be called a kind of redemption which by its one-off quality, at least potentially, gives an aim and a meaning to life, as it is exactly its finiteness that puts my existence at stake – as opposed to the weariness and horror of the always corrigible quality of eternal life.”
Dóra Ida SZŰCS (HU)
freelance contemporary dancer, choreographer, performer
She graduated (BA) at Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy in 2012 and (MA) at Károli Gáspár University (theatre studies department) in 2018.
Lethe by Réka SZŰCS
„to initiate the subject in a different relationship with temporality.
Stillness operates at the level of the subject’s desire to invert a certain relationship with time, and with certain (prescribed) corporeal rhythms. Which means that to engage in stillness is to engage into different experiences of perceiving one’s own presence.”
In Orphism, a Greek mystical religious movement, it was believed that the newly dead who drank from the River Lethe would lose all memory of their past existence.
Réka SZŰCS (HU)
filmmaker, dance film researcher, lecturer, curator
Born in Pécs, Hungary, 1981. Currently lives and works in Budapest, Hungary.
She is a charter member and the artistic director of the SAFE Contemporary Art Studio. Her field of research is the aesthetics of contemporary dance films.
Her experimental short films (for which she often uses cine-film), are choreographic works without dialogue that deconstruct the narrative systematically. They are dance films, if you like.
