– How did the idea of ​​working with Roland Szabo come and what was it like to work with him?
– I first met Roland at L1danceFest, where we talked a lot. He is engaged in photography, video and film, and I wanted a video documentation of my performance for a long time. So there was no doubt that we do something together. After finding an appointment, the work went smoothly and I met in the person of Roland with an accurate, precise and good professional. I met Ádám Márton Horváth (L1-member) in the Shoegaze performance of the association. We talked a lot too, and I felt we had a lot in common. So when I realized that I need music for the movie, I immediately thought of him. When I asked he immediately said yes, which I am very pleased about.
– What tools have you used in your collaborative work and how do they interact?
– We all brought our own tools, our world, and then, like the puzzle, put it together and then only the final image, the film became important, which I am satisfied with.

 – It is not the first time you both visit L1danceFest. First you were an outsider, but now you are returning, and you are both L1 members. How do you see the festival, what do you find attractive about it and what it is like to be a member of L1 Association?
– I really like regularly returning festivals. Mostly because they encourage me to create new performances and discover new artistic journeys. But also because at the festival as a performer I can communicate more widely with viewers and other performers. L1danceFest is always a complex, multi-layered experience, and as a participant, member I see how huge the work is behind such an event.
