Zsolt Palcza | Performance Space New York




PURE, a new dance theater work by Zsolt Palcza, is an excursion into the subterranean currents of the mind.

Three female dancers move through a metaphoric world in a three-sided, 16 x 20 foot white box. Memories slide down walls, emotions twist like oranges, figments jump and hang, thoughts drop like fruit, dreams gasp like mollusks in the sand. The box is bathed in aquatic imagery, giving viewers the feeling of leaving their bodies, suspended in space or floating in water.

Version 2.0

Version 2.0 Readymade Dance Theater Company

Version.2.0 is the third episode of an unexpected trilogy. While the first two pieces, MM3 and Woyzeck, explore the public aspect of war, Version 2.0 confronts the private domain.

In Version 2.0, the audience sits on stage between Halogen lights as three performers – one man and two women – thrash it out just inches away, and occasionally over their heads. Bodies smack, yank, collide, and tremble, repelling awkwardly off of each other, disrupting any expectation of “grace.”
Although it may look like contact improv, each movement is carefully choreographed. Director Zsolt Palcza works with performers who have little formal dance training in order to access the “rough visceral movement” he finds so compelling.
