Curriculum Vitae 

Attila Andrasi

  • Personal Statement 

I started my professional education at the Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy. After that I continued my studies at one of Europe's leading centres for contemporary dance: the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD).  In 2017, after graduating from the SEAD, I started creating my own work. My first solo performance “Once upon a time” was invited to the Festival 10 Sentidos, Spain. After performing at the Festival I received artist residency programs from the Roca Umbert de la Arts organisation, Teatre Municipal de Lloret de Mar and Theatre L'ateneu De Cerla. I always felt some deep connection with my childhood self so I took this inspiration to the residency programs and I explored my way of creating, researching and working on a bigger production. I was working with local artists costume designers, dramaturgs and a musician. We spent weeks brainstorming about my ideas and finding the common language to start creating. At the same time I was delivering contemporary dance and movement classes in the United Kingdom, Spain, Hungary and Germany.

At the end of 2019, after significant research and networking, I developed a creative  contemporary dance workshop which I took on tour in India. I visited Mumbai, Bangalore and New Delhi where I engaged culturally and personally with other artists. I delivered different movements and contemporary dance classes. Also I shared my traditional Hungarian folk dance and learned some Indian traditional dance (Kathak) in return. I found it to be a very spiritual and uplifting creative journey at this point in my personal life. It was inspiring to share my movement and the knowledge about contemporary dance.

In 2020 my work titled “Badarsag” (is a Hungarian word with a meaning similar to “nonsense”. But nonsense with the naivety and playfulness of a child) received financial support from the Hungarian Government and from the Hungarian National Dance Theatre. With this opportunity I had the chance to return to my hometown and I recreated my previous work from my time in Spain. I used some of my movement elements of the piece to deliver movement classes for arts primary schools in the south of Hungary. Some of the primary schools had never experienced contemporary dance before. This was an opportunity for me to work with children. Based on Badarsag which is the duality of childhood and adulthood this was for me where I felt I can create a piece for both adults and children.

From September 2021, I will start my MFA Choreography studies at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
