Drums, feelings, trauma
A unique performance by the Góbi Dance Company
organised by the Hungarian Cultural Centre London.
'Don't Fuss!' is a duet by the Góbi Dance Company. Through music and dance Rita Góbi and Dávid Szegő (drums) are exploring the self and the constant present, which is sometimes very hard to face.
The 40-minute long dance performance is analysing the elements of a relationship focusing on hysteria and the aftermath. The performance is connecting the rhytm of the drums and the humor that is 'hidden' in a couple's daily life, but can be observed by an outsider. And the outsiders are sitting and watching and laughing. Laughing at us. And at themselves, too.
'Don't Fuss' [ ...] displays structured madness full of nuances. It is a choreography that stays with
and transcends the materiality of the body. Rita draws us into the experience of an overwhelming
emotional state but remains the master of ceremony on stage.'
