Wars & Dances (a ritual of ‘lore’) – Eszter Salamon

'Lore' is " a cultural commonplace that is available to all but belongs to no one. Against the blackmail of identity and its assembly" (Omar Berrada). Salamon reflects with 12 dancers on history and identity. Which (dance) history do we know, how and what do we learn about this history and how can we transform this into a more emancipatory experience?
The work of Eszter Salamon (HU) navigates between medias such as voice, sound, text and movement. Her practice of ‘alternative narration’ uses documentary and fiction.
