RELAX - Imre Vass - telocvicna.jpg

Imre Vass - Vasi is an independent performing artist, dancer and choreographer, based in Budapest.

“I host environments for a non-harmful exploration of the comfort zone, to overcome the uncomfortable while tuning, training and sharpening the muscles of attention. Playing with expectations, flirting with ambiguities and obvious choices while swerving away from the mainstream I intend to liberate energies of the participants of the event (both performers and spectators).”
