Radioballet: Bea Egyes & Milan Ujvari
From the waltz to the mambo
This award winner solo, is a meeting of a body a text and and an object.
“From the waltz to the mambo” is combining dance, theater, and pantomime in order to create unpredictability and surpiseness in a very personal and straight forward way. What could dance or beauty have meant fifty years ago and what dose it mean today? Do we need education?

“Rhythm is the first information we receive. It is the bridge that guides us from the world before birth into this world when we are born. When you are in your mother’s womb, you hear the heartbeat and the flow of blood; you feel the mother’s movement and you hear the rhythm of her speech. All of that is rhythm. You are not understanding what is happening, but you are feeling rhythm. As you grow, there are millions of brain cells that have to fire in a rhythmic synchronization in order for you to understand what is happening around you. Without the senso-motoric system, you could not move or think or make any sense of the world. That you can see or hear something is all based on rhythm.”
I believe that dance can alter one’s perception of being an individual into perceiving, that as an individual he is part of a community. The bridge is anaccessible, open situation where rhythm – this universal language – is the base for communication. Breaking the so-called “fourth wall” between audience and performer I offer a unique experience to the spectator: the sensation of the power of dancing.
