Attila Andrasi is the main choreographer and creator of 'Badarség'. He is a Hungarian contemporary dance artist. He began his studies at the Budapest Contemporary Dance College and continued his studies at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance in Salzburg. Attila has been on the creative career since 2017. With his creations he seeks to find out how motion can be interpreted and how motion gets a role where technical knowledge is not the essence but what motion can achieve. Use free improvisation and work with different movement qualities. For him, discovering movement with his own body is like a kid playing his loveliest game. Attila looks for humor and sincerity in the rehearsal room and tries to put it together as if it were a scene in the present. It is a challenge for him to commit improvisation, but he finds it beautiful. His first solo work, Once Upon a Time - was selected in January 2019 in Berlin at Pual Studio and in May 2019 he was shortlisted in the Festival 10 Sentido Choreographic Competition in Valencia. During all this, Attila worked with artists of other nationalities, visual artists, performing artists. For example, Katalin Anna Németh - HZT Academy Berlin, Berlin / Andre Canepa - The Ryde Galery, London and Rosana Antoli - The Tate Galery, London. Attila's current work is Badasrág, which is produced in Hungary and Spain with the support of Tiglado DArts.
In my work there is always the association and the reinterpretation of certain images, ideas or just simple everyday words. Like the game, childhood and home. And the interpretation of all of these as an adult and it is interpretation today. So it's also a game, to live the same at another age, with other heads.
What I am primarily interested in in terms of language, creation forms is how emotionally the effects come from the body and how I can get what I think I see
The language of children is a magical world, where it is not essential to verbally understand each other in order to have a conversation, and where the meaning of certain words is a secret, that no outsider can ever truly understand.

Once upon a time
The simple things we turn into complicated, the complicated ones we take too simple.
Being an easy child to know what kind of ice cream we answer? Or rather, what's so complicated 20 years later?
