Have you been (when) to Budapest - Hungary with your pieces and artistic works earlier?
Ohhh yes...

What do you know about Hungary and what kind of informations do you have about our dance life?
Hungary: postsoc-feudo-kapitalist-mid-eu; dance: on the periphery

Could you share with us if you have any idols in theater/dance life?
“Idol” would be too much, but I like the works, the dance of for example Mal Pelo, Pit Fong Loh, Javier de Frutos, Jerome Bel,  Diquis Tiquis, Batyu, Szunyog, Öcsi, Anita...

What kind of piece will you bring to L1danceFest and does this piece mean any differences or similarities to your earlier works? Where did you perform it already?
“Futuredance” – that is an an-artist dance project, performed in Budapes cafes since 2010, so on the L1danceFest it’s going to start its 3rd season. 

Do you have your arsittic statement, could you share it with us?
Well, it would be too long... shortly, let’s say, be honest...

Do you have any hobby beside working as a performer or creator?
Do you mean, to have small hairy animals or to watch birds? No.

Can you write some details about your artistic life - which direction did you come from and which direction do you go right now? Tell us some important steps from your background!
fine art ambitions –  sport – architecture – sport  – town economy and environmental protection – sport – cultural anthropology – folkdance – contemporary dance and visual design. Now I try to develop my cookery. 

How did your summer time go? Did you get any new inspirations? Do you have a best experience during this summer?
Terrible hot. 

Does it mean any differences to play your pieces in different countries? If so, could you please tell us in what sense?
Yesofcourse, different country – different culture – what are (are there?) the sameness?

What does it mean to you to be in the process and to show the work to the audience? What kind of feedback are you open for?
The secret art doesn’t exists, it is the nature of our works to present them to people...
Basicly I’m open for the the fun’s opinions.

Do you read critics about your works? What kind of critic do you need?
Yesofcourse, why, who does not? Okay, I try to be serious: I’m interested in the analytic texts. 

Do you criticize other’s works? Do you write about it?
sure

Are you open for a round table discussion with the audience after a premier or after your show?
anytime

Here you find some words, could you put them in sentences which could be kind of ars poetic of yours!

Do you have any question?
A lot
