Ference Fehér: Tao Te
Performance – 40 min
The title of this duet was inspired by the legendary Chinese sage, LaoTze’s, and his famous and well-known work, “Tao Te Ching – The Path of Virtue”. In the title, Tao refers to the path, the way, the universal law, and Te refers to virtue – the power through which tao manifests itself. The task is to maintain harmony. The old script invites to search for a virtuous and meaningful life but it also describes the failure that this search involves. A tension that is visible in the dance.
The forty-minute long intense physical dance is a story of two men with different characters and attitudes.
