ESZTER SALAMON (HU/DE)
11:00 – 14:00 / 06.10 / WASP

MASTER CLASS

I would like to link the workshop to Melodrama and my interest in narration, documentary and female autobiography. In this way I can link some of my works such as Hungarian Dances (205) that is an autobiographical lecture performance, AND THEN (2007), which is a film-choreography aiming to create fiction from documentary material and address the issue of ‘multiple identity’ through the arbitrariness of homonymy, and Melodrama (2012), a documentary performance telling the life-story of another Eszter Salamon.

Eszter Salamon is the author of the solos “What A Body You Have, Honey” (2001) and “Giszelle” (2001) in collaboration with Xavier Le Roy, “Nvsbl” (2006), a film-choreography in collaboration with Bojana Cvejic, “Dance#1/Driftworks” (2008), in collaboration with Christine De Smedt, “Voice Over” (2009), a piece commissioned and interpreted by Cristina Rizzo, “Dance for Nothing” (2010) and, with Bojana Cvejic, Cédric Dambrain and Terre Thaemlitz, “TALES OF THE BODILESS” (2011).

In 2009, Eszter Salamon developed “Transformers” with Christine De Smedt, a research project for a group choreography through workshops and artist residencies in Brussels, Madrid, PAF-St. Erme, Mexico City, Vienna, Tokyo and Stockholm. Following on from “Transformers”, Salamon and De Smedt presented during ImpulsTanz 2011 in Vienna their duet piece “Dance#2”.
