Catching the moment. Being there. After the warming up with Ide van Heiningen, Virag Dezső starts with an exercise of throwing a 'ball' in the air: "Follow the movement till it hits the ground. You have to feel the moment is coming, you have to prepare, to be there, to end. You have to be with it and sense the timing, the quality of the moment. Body movement has a certain quality. When your action becomes clear then timing is clear. It is in the action the movement has to be clear and readable. The butterfly on our dance floor and the Bowed Fiddler Crab building his sand-roof against the flood are the beautiful gifts of the day, which ends with the welcoming hospitality of our Dutch representatives and generous diner with Mrs. Jeane Huang (former director Taipei film festival). In mandarin butterfly is FU-dei and sounds like happiness or good luck!
