Version.2.0 is the third episode of an unexpected trilogy. While the first two pieces, MM3 and Woyzeck, explore the public aspect of war, Version 2.0 confronts the private domain.
In Version 2.0, the audience sits on stage between Halogen lights as three performers – one man and two women – thrash it out just inches away, and occasionally over their heads. Bodies smack, yank, collide, and tremble, repelling awkwardly off of each other, disrupting any expectation of “grace.”
Although it may look like contact improv, each movement is carefully choreographed. Director Zsolt Palcza works with performers who have little formal dance training in order to access the “rough visceral movement” he finds so compelling.
