PLAN B / Timothy and the things

in English
performance length: 50 min
Always be realistically fictional. Unless you can be fictionally real. Then whatever. But always have a plan B. 'Cause it's all about practical dysfunctionalism. Or about dysfunctional practicism. More or less...

This performance is a part of Malá inventura 2017 Festival.


There are two totally different characters on the stage. They're like escapologists, racing against time and against each other, in the shade of a compressed space-time illusion which has been made of a thick net of memories about a never-existed future. They try to get enough close to each other to have a safe distance from their own selves. But they are like two parallel lines hoping to just bend, to just cross each other before they disappear into infinity. To catch the restlessly transforming will in its rushing stillness they might also need to breath out sometimes...

Why do we have this powerful desire to catch and control everything around us? And when does this obsession take us over and start imprisoning us instead of creating enough space to ensure a wide range of choices and possibilities, a sense of freedom. While we’re so busy creating plan B, who is taking care of plan A? What if we don't even have a clear picture about plan A? What makes us happier in the end? Are we really willing to complete or carry out plan A, or is plan A only an excuse to give life to plan B? The creators have also explored power games, messing around with their fragile balance and with the possibilities of reversing relations within them. Don’t judge too fast about who's pulling the strings because it might shift in a split second.

László Fülöp is a young Hungarian contemporary dance choreographer, performer and teacher, and an active member of the L1 Association. He finished his studies at the Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy 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 own choreographic works as well. The core topic of his interest is based on exploring and analyzing all forms of human social behaviors and communication issues, from all possible aspects, in their own completeness, without generalizations and prejudices: in a simple, pure and personal way. He finds it extremely important to let people see and understand those inner processes which - though unconsciously - influence and guide their acts and decisions.

She has worked with artists from various countries and has been a co-creator of projects including: Hanging Man (Ctibor Turba); Cat (Petr Krušelnický); and Mezzo, Už muž, and Money Transformance with Second Hand Women.
