Aims and activities of the organisation
Our mission is to make contemporary art, most of all contemporary dance accessible and understandable to new audiences and new social layers.
Eva Duda Dance Company is one of the best established independent contemporary dance groups in Hungary. Through our work we try to build a bridge between well-known and more progressive genres. This bridge helps people understand and enjoy unconventionality, irregularity, abstraction and complexity in dance.We find it important to work on important social issues through art. Collaborations have been crucial for us since the start, and we often invite and host guest artists both from in - and outside of Hungary.
Our repertoire is built up by several small scale and a few bigger shows, ranging from simple, intimate duos and trios to multidisciplinary performances including dancers, actors, circus artists and musicians. All of them are visually expressive performances from progressive contemporary pieces to high quality theatre shows involving live music and new circus elements.
