UNPUNISHED
Two performers in an urban dungeon. A dark bats nest.
Regardless of their different backgrounds and personal stories, they are condemned to each other. They're prepared to be punished. But whilst enclosed in a place with no exit, they've long forgotten why.

Two men sentenced to a virtuosic ritual. There is no sign of recognition, only the power of urgency in each other's presence. The time. The space. The light above the bats nest goes out.

Divided We Stand, Hungarian Premiere

Divided We Stand Arty 5
Divided We Stand is built on the struggle with oneself and the necessary counterpart for materializing our dreams energetically…with someone else.
In today's context of deep rooted feelings of social instability and strife, a simple familiar form finally appears on stage: the duet. Yet with Gallagher's radical and sublime signature language, the piece pops the fantasy bubble. Attractions and repulsions abruptly meet, exposing a 'tension field' where attention is embodied between human beings and their ever changing conditions.  Divided We Stand is a delicate and violent exposure of the establishing of and functioning of partnerships. He explores and questions assumptions, idealisms and fixed notions associated with representation and ultimately the utopian romanticism of today's public messages.

Mankind is always going somewhere, always wanting to be something. According to Nietzsche this was quite logical, because man is nothing. We are a transition between what we were and what we should be. The mongrel from Darwin's cabinet type - Half animal, half something nobler.

With art, sex and religion we try to grab the higher. The complex is that you can only reach The higher if you let go of The higher - A reasoning to maddening. For in the eye of madness, is the gateway to beauty and enlightenment.

Six characters are trapped in a space between good and evil, reality and ideal, life and death. Making art they try to fight the void but art is born out of boredom and only leads to more boredom and irritation especially!

In desperation they proceed to a point where all existing values ​​go bankrupt. In contact with bottomless ugliness they find salvation from the ideal. Rather a successful animal, than a failed man ...

Europe…Zeus was enamored of Europa and decided to seduce or ravish her, the two being near-equivalent in Greek myth. Under the auspices of Hungarian Director/Choreographer Krisztián Gergey, and international cast assembles to explore the myths and the implications of austerity packages, present day constuctivist social wet dreams, and governments that simply break down and give up.

We the people, the disenfranchised, cut out of the discussion, occupied by distraction, losing our collective capital, are being seduced and ravished: the two being near equivalent in todays myth ridden global economy. It's old school all the way.

The European Goulash Party:everyone's invited - the ravisher, the consumerist, the fetishist, the constitutionalist, the spiritualist, the artist, so long as they comply with the dress code.

Operatic in scope, amusing and down right knee slapingly funny, Raped Europeans goes for a walk in the post industrial economic theme park, and the freaks are out dancing tonight, highlighting the irony of today's crises led mock democracies seducing us all with the negotiations concerning the table scraps of bullishly obscene.

MINUS

Minus is a dynamic portrait of a disjointed relationship. In their self induces blindness the couple - which at times resemble headless chickens - search for a long gone future. Remorse overwhelms their defeated bodies.

sluts of possession 4 copy


Where is the intersection between rational thought and instinctual action?
Where does the mind travel when possessed by a powerful emotion or an invasive soul?
Where is the boundary that separates the brain from the spirit?
Can we truthfully record the collective minds and dreams of a foreign and distant culture?

Choreographers Rosie Kay and Guilherme Miotto, together with filmmaker Louis Price investigate the spaces between emotion and consciousness, delving into themes such as possession, tribal ritual and anthropological notation of human interaction. Miotto and Kay, two virtuoso dance artists, perform the duet themselves, whilst a tactile fusion of ethnographic archive imagery donated by the Pitt Rivers Museum (Oxford), and newly created film material, houses them in shapes of light and imagery.

Sluts of Possession comments playfully on the so called distinctions between primitive and developed culture, highlighting outmoded colonial barriers that haunt ‘civilized’ society and its attitude to foreign cultures. For its 40 minutes running time, Sluts will seduce the rational minds of the viewer, and expose the flip-side of perception using the tools at its disposal: physicality, movement, light, projected film, and sound.

Sluts of Possession makes its world premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe, it also marks the second collaboration at the festival for Rosie Kay and Guilherme Miotto after the acclaimed duet Asylum premiered in Edinburgh 2005.

''...a fractured journey into the dark heart of other cultures...'' ''...an arresting attempt to capture primal states of being..."
The Times

''...get under the skin of primal rituals, trance dance and the altered states that ensue..."
The Herald

"...a fascinating new show, which invades consciousness through its physicality and mesmeric power.''
The Skinny

“...a physical tour de force as the couple perform an anthropological compendium of trance or ritual dances...
Sluts of Possession is an absorbing, fascinating encounter…”
The Guardian

“…they dance with the projections, interacting with the images as they move into and out of the projector beam. In one sequence their silhouettes loom large on the screen, obscuring the footage going on behind them and becoming anthropological subjects themselves. The effect is uncanny…”
