Gábor Halász is an emerging choreographer who represents his artistic versatility in numerous forms. In addition to being a choreographer-dancer he also creates electronic music, designs and builds his own scenery. His progressive choreographic works aim to break through the limitations and bounderies of individual dance techniques in order to open new perspectives for the freedom of artistic expressions. Melting together classical vocabulary and contemporary approaches, he combines small, rhytmical and huge, dynamic movements in space. Therefore his pieces require precision in movement and a dominant stage presents. Because of his knowledge in music production and sound design he developed a unique sensitivity to the audio enviroment in his pieces to underline his artistic statements. His curiosity drives him to continue experimenting and attempting to translate social issues, professional positions, personal relations and emotions to the universal physical language of dance. He focuses on the body of the dancers as a limitless tool to research the movements, expressions of the future.
