»A virtuoso dance about the horrors of war. – A great, significant dance evening.«
The Hungarian-born choreographer Eszter Salamon has already put her feeling for dance, music, lighting and stage space to the proof and most recently delighted the Viennese audience with Tales of the Bodiless. In her current work, MONUMENT 0: HAUNTED BY WARS (1913-2013), the first part of a series that deals with choreography and history, she explores the last 100 years as a global story of war. Together with six dancers she rehearsed tribal and folk dancing as well as popular dance forms that have just one common feature: they come from cultures that during the last 100 years have been marked by the outbreak of wars. The western world was never uninvolved in these conflicts, but the theatre of war was not in Europe.
She puts these dances on stage chronologically, starting with the First World War. The masked dancers drum, dance, hum, sing and push themselves to their limits. Salamon’s idea successively builds up an alternative world history – that of the victim, of the forgotten, lost and extinguished cultures and rituals.
Eszter Salamon is a choreographer, dancer and performer. Her work has been internationally presented in the context of the performance and visual arts. She is the author of the solos What A Body You Have, Honey (2001) and Giszelle (2001) in collaboration with Xavier Le Roy, and Dance for Nothing (2010). Among her group performances are: Reproduction (2004), Magyar Tàncok (2005), Nvsbl (2006), AND THEN (2007) in collaboration with Bojana Cvejic, Without You I Am Nothing (2007) together with Arantxa Martinez, Dance#1/Driftworks (2008), and Dance#2 (2011) with Christine de Smedt.
Her most recent works are: TALES OF THE BODILESS (2011) with Bojana Cvejic, Cédric Dambrain and Terre Thaemlitz, and Melodrama (2012), a solo “documentary performance”. At the moment, she is preparing a performative solo exhibition in the frame of the exhibition series Satellite at Jeu de Paume, Paris (October – November 2014). As a dancer, she has collaborated with Sidonie Rochon, Mathilde Monnier and François Verret.
