Dance company: Bo-Complex: Fright Fight Flight
Interdisciplinary music - dance - video - installation - performance
The performance of Bonn's Bo-Komplex dance company and the T42 Dance Project in Berlin, FRIGHT FIGHT FLIGHT, blends dance with art and media. The performance explores the concept of escaping in human survival. The show will take place on May 17th and 18th in the basement of Art Quarter Budapest.
German-Swiss-Hungarian co-produced exhibition and dance performance FRIGHT FIGHT FLIGHT is a piece that examines sensitive human reactions to the "fight-or-flight" response. Scientific research proves that fear of threat - even if it is not realistic - initiates neurobiological processes in the body. Survival behaviour often relieves superhuman forces, resulting in two reactions in stressful situations: you either take the gun or you flee. The show displays different aspects of the concept of escaping, that are based on personal experiences and draws on the coping strategies of actors of different nationalities and backgrounds. There are different ways we cope, using theatre and arts or we work to extents of addiction, to move to another imaginary world of our own creation. In the case of this performance, contemporary dance is used as the universal art code for expressing this mechanism and its infinity.
The performance is held in different venues where the audience accompanies the dancers from one station to the other, discovering the architectural features of the AQB basement. Artworks appear on each site, including sculptures inspired by Brueghel and Bosch, X-ray suitcase installations, a dome tent made of wooden screens and a tunnel of video installations. The performers and audience in this show are connected, facing each other and interact with no barriers, further strengthening the concept of escape where we can only resolve the situation and escape if we cooperate. It also helps the audience to recognize their own escape strategies. The choreographers of the performance, Bärbel Stenzenberger, one of the founders of the Bo-Complex Society, and Felix Duméril, the leader of the T42 Dance Project, are both award-winning artists. The scenes that combine dance, fine art, music and light have been created in rehearsals with dancers, using their personal experiences. After last year's premiere of Bonn, FRIGHT FIGHT FLIGHT went on an international tour, with Budafok coming third.
