Thomas Körtvélyessy (hungary) has been working consistently on the premises of dance-making for the 21st century for almost 20 years. He re-searches, re-forms and re-connects to literally make sense in the moment, and his instrumental medium of communication and understanding is dance. Process and development, guided by inspiration and a concern for understanding, empowerment and liveliness in the moment of communication are key words to his interests.
thomas starte his own entreprise Reàl Dance Company under which he has created solo- and group pieces since 1996. These were own productions as well as projects with several collaborators which explored many different contexts centered around movement. Performances were realised in small and alternative venues, galeries, theatres, as well as many outdoors-locations, in the Netherlands, particularly in Rotterdam, New York City, Budapest, Bucharest, and Seoul. The works range from very accessible community-dance work to highly individual solo-performances.
