Unusual Symptoms / Theatre Bremen / Adrienn Hód

Harmonia

May 30 and 31
Popup - Descomptes

In Harmonia, Unusual Symptoms and Hungarian choreographer Adrienn Hód invite us to explore anew the human body and its meaning in dance and society. Between shared explorations of physical diversity, fun-filled exuberance and a good dose of self-irony, an ensemble of dancers with and without disabilities questions hierarchies of classical dance, but also the supposedly progressive forms of contemporary dance. Asking for the undisturbed attention of the audience, they throw conventional notions of the body and the structures built around it overboard and set about playfully realigning our gaze.

Harmonia was awarded the Rudolf Lábán Prize 2023 for the best dance piece in Hungary and was invited to Tanzplattform Deutschland 2024, one of the most imporant showcase for contemporary dance in Germany.

Adrienn Hód is an internationally acclaimed choreographer, specialising in contemporary dance and experimental movement. Her permanent company is HODWORKS, of which she has been artistic and production director since 2007. In addition to her work with the company, she also choreographs for other Hungarian and international collaborations. She is also an applied choreographer for theatre productions, films and commercials.

Unusual Symptoms have been the dance company of Theater Bremen since 2012. Originally founded by the French-Algerian choreographer Samir Akika, the ensemble has been working under the artistic direction of Alexandra Morales and Gregor Runge since 2018.
