Repertoire / MIRROR




Choreographer: Eva Duda



MIRROR is powerful and impressive show where dominance, rival situation and erotic play among the community is brought by raw energies and pure physical approach.

The show was premiered at the 20th Budapest Dance Festival in March 2020 for the 10th Jubilee of the Company. MIRROR is looking back to the most powerful moments from the first decade of the team’s artistic work, by creating a retrospective show with young and powerful dancers.

MIRROR is one of the purest dance shows of the company, with highly skilled dancers who present the best of their qualities. From wild and dynamic sequences of intense choreographies through passionate partnering scenes to almost totally silent parts are followed by each other with the mark of Eva’s unique style on each moment.

The stage is like an arena where everyone has to win their role in the group. Strong and agile figures are flowing across the space with intensive energies, creating exalted tension. The members of the community find themselves in a rival situation, trying to rule one another, but in the next moment searching for peace by supporting and enjoying each other. The atmosphere they evoke is fulfilled with raw energies, dominance and erotic power play. 

Eva Duda’s early works are based on highly energetic and dynamic physicality. In MIRROR she turned back to this purely physical approach, which evokes that extraordinary momentum she is known for. Polishing this “language” for more than a decade, spiced up with remarkable dancers, it became one of the most characteristic show, she has ever created.
