Declaration of Independence

A solo performance by Kata Juhasz, hungarian dancer, choreograph and co-creator of the project "Kunst på opkald" (Art on-call) by Kunstpartiet.

”I was born in the year that Denmark, Ireland and the U.K. became members of the Eurpean Union. I was educated as a medical doctor in Budapest but I decided to dance because the call of art was stronger. I became a solo dancer in a French-Hungarian company when Hungary joined the EU in 2004 and we felt like we had been reborn.

I then witnessed many of my compatriots declare their independence by leaving Hungary for political reasons and moving to Germany and even more to the U.K. Next, I witnessed that many British citizens declared their willingness to become independent by leaving the EU. So I decided to return to my original profession, the medical profession, to maintain my independence and help with the health of European citizens… ”

This performance, articulated in verbal speech and contemporary physical movements, is an ironic but honest self-reflection and a personal showdown with certain historical points of view on the possibilities of an authentic artist who is willing to maintain her independence in a politicized environment about the changing borders of the EU.

Kata Juhasz is an artist, who never ceases to surprice her audience with her unique creative playfulness. Her sharp and yet sensitive approach ensures that really heavy and serious  subjects are touched by clarity and flair. What more reason would one need as an excuse to go see good theatre?”
