Torso Modi

2019/2020

With the Austrian company BODHI Project and the internationally touring Asasello Quartet, choreographer Stephanie Thiersch sensitively creates unexpected encounters and poetic clashes with the newly composed works by composers Judit Varga, Maté Balogh, Árpád Solti and Péter Tornyai. Together, tonal and physical resonance spaces are explored – balancing between devotion to the other art form and the preservation of the very own qualities. With humorous seriousness and the sometimes very delicate, then impulsive contemporary music, which undermines every cliché of danceability, our sense of hearing and time is challenged.

“The concept of the Asasello Quartet and the choreographer Stephanie Thiersch on artistic transdisciplinarity with young Hungarian composers and dancers is convincing in terms of cultural exchange and interest in the future of Eastern Europe.”
