László Fülöp is a young Hungarian contemporary dance choreographer, performer and teacher, after one year residency program by L1 Association he joined the association's work in 2014. He was born in 1987 in Budapest as child of musician parents so he’s got a strong musical background and education in his childhood. Later his interest started to turn more and more towards dance and theater. He went to Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy and finished his studies in 2010. Since then as a freelancer he has cooperated with many different artists and dance companies and as an independent choreographer he has developed his own choreographic works as well.
His main topic of research is the human being in its own completeness, without ideologies or prejudices: in a simple, pure and personal way. He focuses on the performers’ personalities and tries to avoid any generalizations, spectacular elements, classical aesthetics of dance, which diverts attention from the performers and simplifies the analyzed phenomena. He always centered his previous works on specific psychological topics: In his piece whatsupwithyou?!nothing?! (2010) he dealt with loneliness, personal rituals and being alone in society, while in emese&emil (2011) he investigated Eric Berne's transaction analysis and game theory. In what does ‘iloveyou’ means? (2011) he was exploring whether there can ever be a personal, sincere and intimate relationship between performers and audiences in a theatrical framework, and in his latest piece, called there’s an elephant in every room… (2013) he was researching what degree we can objectively talk about self-determination and free will.
László’s interest in movement is focused on choreographing everyday movements and gestures into dance, experimenting with extreme size, distance and rhythms, movements so fast that they’re impossible for the brain to follow, isolation techniques, automatic connections within the body, being out of breath, resting, interdependence, defencelessness and different qualities of contact.
