Enikő Szilágyi
Budapest, Hungary

I think that everything what I can see and feel around me affect my dance and quality of movement. I am able to sense my space of resonance and the bridge between the body-mind and motion.

If I embody the inner images into my dance and stay present and open, I experience a greater harmony. There I may find and embrace otherwise hidden deeper meanings of my Self, life.

I am very interested in to work with focused attention to our perception; improvise in solo, duet and group. I love to search and explore answers and find more questions about connection between our senses and physical movement, recoloring the details and playing with them.
