Soul Chain, National Dance Theatre Budapest, 8 October


Soul Chain, National Dance Theatre Budapest, 8 October
Inspired by strong emotions all around love, Soul Chain connects ballet and electro in a thrilling contemporary dance.

The Ensemble becomes a swarm full of energy in an extremely challenging choreography that won the German Theatre Prize DER FAUST in 2018.

Even though Sharon says Soul Chain is a play about love and longing, you should not expect too much romance. Rather, the movements are animalistic and pure, a steaming group that moves with the highest discipline in rhythmic unison. The longer a unisono lasts, the more time we have to search for the differences as public and can find the dancers in full intention.

As the choreographer says, one can see from the same thing how different we are. So here, in the contrast between the group and the individual, she expresses her love for the absolute uniqueness of each individual.

The re-staging of Soul Chain in 2019 was like a reunion. The enormously knowledgeable tanzmainz rehearsal director Andrea Svobodova had four weeks to rehearse the work in all its technical and emotional aspects; at times supported by Sharon's longtime dancers and assistants Rebecca Hytting and Tom Weinberger.
