Ellen Söderhult on AGON by Florentina Holzinger
Impulstanz offered a fabulous world premiere by Florentina Holzinger et al, an excellent piece that develops unpredictably and makes up for an interesting take on contemporary dance 2014. It is AGON, in farfetched but genius interpretations, an urgent exhaustion of the theme of struggle for recovery and the empowering and healing potential of intense physicality. Throughout the performance radically different ways of addressing this are proposed as drastically different activities, expressions and modes of performing are superimposed and transposed in and out of each other.
