For one month they worked in collaboration with 12 participants, one of which was Andreas Hannes.

SNDO School for New Dance Development: Admission

March - April 2014



I am delighted to announce that I have been accepted to attend the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) of the Amsterdam School for the Arts, starting from September 2014. After attending the Intensive Course of the school, it became clear to me that SNDO is a place where my artistic development could continue. The encounter with so many artists from all over the world and the atmosphere that the jury decided to conduct the admission auditions (April 3-5) was an enriching experience. I am grateful for the journey I have experienced so far in SNDO and I am looking forward to what comes next. For more information about the school: SNDO

Generation Y
GENERATION Y: Between Dystopia and Utopia

February 2014



Generation Y is about us.
"We consume fast food with frightening regularity yet also create Pinterest-worthy organic meals. We dress in €300 jeans or shop at thrift shops, or both. Some of us are addicted to social media while others are deleting their Facebook accounts. We are procrastinators and overachievers, politically active and apathetic, and watch both the best and worst television in generations.......We have been called the generation going no-where, generation frustration, the sleepless generation, yuppies, hippies, the death of the middle class and so on. But how much of it is it fake and how much is it real? What does our generation actually want and how do we want to tell it?"
A Small House Productions international media exchange.

Aution
FABRIC OF TIME: Wins a VAF award!

December 2013

 

Fabric of Time received a VAF (Flanders Audiovisual Fund) Wildcard Award in the category of Film Lab!
"Fabric of Time takes us to 1980s Hungary through sound recordings, photographs and performative re-enactments of childhood. By means of a three-layered structure, the cinematic experiment implicitly talks about the author’s point of view on his family’s history and domestic conflict, while constructing memories for the years purposefully forgotten."
Congratulations to Miki Ambrozy and everyone who was involved in the film! For more information about the film: Fabric of Time
