Mechanics of Distance
How much can dance explore a space?
In an encounter between three dancers and a musician in space, the audience have the choice to get up close or stay away. Máté Mészáros’ trio is an inquiry into the wide range of variations that static and moving bodies in an open space can create. To illustrate the abstraction of separation, togetherness or entwinement of these three figures, the choreographer lays out an array of episodic situations.
Embraced by Áron Porteleki’s live music, the three performers constantly shift from hints of everyday life nonsense to solemn structural routines leaving you mesmerised by the Mechanics of Distance’s plasticity.
