IDFB 2016: Molnár, Trefeli & Varga

Eclipse & JINX 103

A DOUBLE BILL of two performances, showcasing two different choreographic works that beautifully compliment one another – Eclipse and JINX 103.

Hungary-based choreographer Csaba Molnár evokes the improvised masses of the party culture. Eclipse reinterprets the stereotypical situations created by the dancing crowd to create a new, fictitious, comic-like world.  Csaba Molnár will be working in residency with a large group of local dance students and artists.

József Trefeli graduated from the University of Melbourne VCA with a Bachelor of Arts in Dance. On 6 continents, in more than 40 countries, József has achieved critical acclaim for his many and varied dance performances and numerous choreographic works. Varga began his career in folk dance and studied at Talentum International School of Dance and Musical Art in Budapest after which he was accepted to P.A.R.T.S.

József Trefeli and Gabor Varga have been named a Priority Company of 2013 by Aerowaves with the choreography of JINX 103. They explore the rhythms and rituals of life in a high energy, captivating performance.

Connected by being from the Hungarian diaspora, Trefeli, born in Australia and Varga in the USSR, delve into their common heritage. Through their shared vocabulary of vibrant body percussion, with clapping and slapping, clicking and stamping, they create a breathtakingly energetic dance of lightning fast footwork, leg twisting and weaving, high kicks and turning jumps.
