About the choreographer
Ferenc Fehér is an independent and defining figure in the Hungarian dance theatre scene, his works being appreciated worldwide at international dance and theatre festivals. His unmistakable aesthetics and suggestive style originates from the combination of freestyle dance, animal-like and martial arts movements. From 2013 is recurrent choreographer at Studio M.
/An intense physical presence, his profound desire of self-definition originates from a mysterious instinctivity. You can’t help but look at this body in constant movement with fascination, like under a spell, enchanted and confused at the same time. / (Balkon, 2002/07,08)
The elevator is a narrow space where people get on and off, going up and down without getting in touch with each other. The elevator is always on the move. But if suddenly it gets stuck on the way, anything can happen.
“The title of the performance as well as the choreography throws us viewers in an association web from the uniform world of businessman to small, suffocating spaces, from neutral states to exhaustion and suspense.” (Anikó Varga)
