While in the myth of Icarus, Icarus' father warns his son by saying “for the fogs about the earth may weigh you down and the blaze from the sun are going to melt your feathers apart”, the story decides to accent only the relationship between Icarus and the sun, ignoring the other side of the story.
ICARUS UNTOLD tell the story of the Icarus that didn't dare to fly high enough, seen by the regrettable eyes of the falling Icarus. The piece focuses on the dual aspect of the myth. The two figures face one another as the opposite that needs each other tension in order to express their full potential.

Zest is the imaginary universe, where taste turns into a visual sense. The dancer embodies a range of flavors - from sweet to sour, from bitter to spicy, while the camera, sound, and space choose a perspective of interpretation. The film calls for immediate sensorial memories, emotions, and associations. Here the German idiom “The eye eats with you” is extended to the whole body. From head to toe, from the skin to hair - everything is affected by the wonderland of taste.

Wanting to run and not knowing where to go because there are many places you want to avoid, realities to face and pain to hide. It is finding yourself in the same place over and over again, going around in circles of your own choosing. Jump to the next day to not take into account how bad it was the last day. It is wanting to cry that day, but the hardened heart does not allow it. Sometimes that desire to run can't get out of our own skin, but it remains.

Our memories, our experiences shape our existence. Therefor we create layers of interaction with the recent moment, the people around us and between our past and our future. “Parallel Minds” is a research into collaboration and communication. How can we and do we interact with each other and with the many versions of ourselves? What happens, if we break down hierarchies and let all the parts in the puzzle act as equals? The process is the content, the content becomes the process and in the end our imagination becomes reality.

The choreographic piece "White" was initially inspired by the prose work of Norwegian author Jon Fosse "Aliss at the Fire" and the text of the composer Ármin Cservenák "White Love". Based on these two templates, I wrote a poem called “White” which is in a way a sublimate of the transposed story into a universal language to serve as a template for composing music, as well as for creating choreography.
Short description of Jon Fosse's "Aliss at the Fire":
In her old house by the fjord, Signe lies on a bench and sees a vision of herself as she was more than twenty years earlier: standing by the window waiting for her husband Asle, on that terrible late November day when he took his rowboat out onto the water and never returned. Her memories widen out to include their whole life together, and beyond: the bonds of family and the battles with implacable nature stretching back over five generations, to Asle's great-great-grandmother Aliss. In Jon Fosse's vivid, hallucinatory prose, all these moments in time inhabit the same space, and the ghosts of the past collide with those who still live on.
“White Love” by Ármin Cservenák:
White is the brightest color and has no hues. White is the equal mixture of the three primary colors. The white color can be associated with peace, purity, brightness, (new) beginning etc... In most cultures, the white color has a positive symbology. For me, white means coldness, emptiness, spacelessness, fear, a space where everything dissolves and disappears. These thoughts associated with the white color make me emotionally ambiguous. Sometimes I feel the white color terminates and neutralizes everything. Being in other moods I think white transforms and unites everything into its primary and purest existing state. These impressions led me to project the symbolic meaning of white color to the deepest human relationship, love.
Through the book, we learn that the unfortunate event of loss appeared in various forms through five generations of the protagonist as a kind of conditioned pattern of the family tree that is eternally repeated. The protagonist always returns to the unfortunate event, obviously looking for answers and ways to get out of the vicious circle. Everything happens in her head, visiting herself over and over again.
The choreographic structure is designed in the improvisation form of a spiral that twists inwards and outwards at the same time. The spiral circle is divided into four thematic-spatial units, the space of loss, the space of memory, the space of emotion/love and the space of frustration or all together in the space of transformation. One character is embodied by two performers, a character who was, who is and who will be.
To be trapped at some point means to be trapped in eternity, to be confined to infinity, imprisoned in freedom. Or as the composer, Mr Cservenák wrote, white is aspacethat transforms everything to its primary and purest existingstate.

“We are born as free individuals, or so we are made to think... we are born in civilization, so from the beginning we are part of something bigger than ourselves... we belong to a society that has already made choices for us whether we know it, want it, or not.
It even feels normal for us to live in this system, because we truly believe we are living in freedom...
But do we have a chance to even think that something might be mistaken in our stressful lives? If we just stop and think about it, can we actually change something?
Even after grasping this idea, we keep on going because it seems to be the normal thing everyone does and normal is right, isn't it?
While everything around us changes at a maddening speed and our consuming society demands more and more: everything has to be faster, bigger, better...
It seems as if we become pieces of a machine that has to function no matter what, in a world that shows no empathy for the individual and their needs or wishes.
By trying to be different we risk being rejected by said society, get sucked back in and pay a higher price than we may have considered. How worth is it risking safety for freedom?”
