As a dance collective with our artistic work we aim to build bridges between well-known and more progressive genres, to enjoy complexity in dance. Our mission is to make contemporary art, most of all to contemporary dance accessible and understandable to new audiences and new social layers. Through our various artistic projects, social responsibility has a particular importance, especially with a sustainable and environmentally conscious approach, and the protection of human rights are also essential for our team. In our dance studio, there are always open classes and programmes to join.
During the past several years more than a hundred thousand spectators from fifteen countries enjoyed our shows or different artistic programmes. Being a motivated and young organization with big ideas and plans, we are aiming to work for the future of performing arts.
The Company’s latest performances, MIRROR and RAMAZURI were created in cooperation with the Hungarian National Dance Theater and have been running in international venues and festivals with great success since their premiere. Our brand new creation about the extraordinary life of Frida Kahlo was premiered in December 2022 in Budapest.
