Both Bilateral 2016 Artists have collaborated with choreographer Adrienn
Hod, who was Bilateral Artist in the Fall of 2014.  Imre also toured as
dancer with Ultima Vez/Wim Vendekebus in 2009-10.

Anna began creating her own work in 2014. At present she says, *“ **I am
working mainly with improvisation techniques and scores to explore
unknown,* *unconscious
territories appearing in the moment. I am obsessed with personal point of
views, specific colorful authonomic interpretation of one’s peculiar
relation to the world. Dance art* *is the most beautiful field of this
exploration for me, as it needs the whole bodymind*

*for creation. I could not imagine any material that has more stake than
this temporarily alive*

*flesh called body.”*

Imre has been creating his own work since 2010 and besides being presented
in Budapest he has shown his work in Berlin, Copenhagen, London,
Bratislava, Vienna, Brussels. He says *“I travel a lot as a performer and I
am looking forward to find ways to establish myself as an* *international
dance-maker as well. The cultural policy and infrastructure is not
supporting* *the kind art I am representing, but it is not the primary
cause I am keeping my sight outside* *of the borders of Hungary. I want to
make art that deals with specific, local issues but holds*

*a global awareness.”*

*The Bilateral Dance Artists Exchange is presented by Philadelphia Dance
Projects **and made possible with support from the Trust for Mutual
