The fragmented story telling or the narrations of the performances are based on the bible, on ancient greek mythology and the results of biological sciences today – they are developed to a contemporary Mixed Media Art performance.

GRAVITYLove von Kristóf Szabó

Except putting on stage dance- and theatre-works with his mixed media ensemble of performing arts F.A.C.E., he also works on site specific performances as well as on his own format: TheaterTanz = danse théâtrale.

ANTIGONE

PRESS:

“…Szabó impressively manage to give shape to this mystic thesis of unification through sound, light, video as well as variable stage design sculptures; because the single elements merge into an artistic form which embraces far more than the simple description “TheatreDance”. Over and over, we experience truly magical moments, never seen before on Cologne stages…”

Georg Kaiser: Gas II

“L’équipe qui accompagne Szabó parvient à expliciter cette thèse mythique de l’unification au moyen de sons, lumières, vidéos ainsi qu’au moyen de décors et sculptures variées. En effet, les différents éléments se fondent en une forme artistique qui englobe bien plus que la simple auto-représentation de la «danse théâtrale». Encore et toujours sont représentés avec succès des moments véritablement magiqueset encore jamais vus sur la scène de Cologne.”

PHOTONMOVE

…es gelingt dem Team um Szabó mit Klang, Licht, Video sowie variablen Bühnenbild-Skulpturen eindrücklich, dieser mystischen These der Einswerdung Gestalt zu verleihen. Denn die einzelnen Elemente verschmelzen zu einer künstlerischen Form, die weit mehr umspannt als die schlichte Selbstbezeichnung „Theatertanz“. Immer wieder gelingen wahrhaft magische, auf Kölner Bühnen nie gesehene Momente.
