Beáta Egyed



The Hungarian artist and performer was born in 1988 in Eger. She has been dancing since she was a child, and has been living, working and creating in Budapest since 2007. From classical ballet to various contemporary dance techniques, she has attended and participated in comprehensive trainings (workshops) (Nigel Charnock, Emanuel Gat, Wim Vandekeybus, Samuel Lefeuvre). Over the past ten years, she has collaborated with a number of Hungarian and international artists, including the Éva Duda Company, with Valle Lachky Eleonóre, the Forte Company, the Pál Frenák Company, and Hodworks. Together with Milán Újvári, she started her creative career with the Radioballet formation. In her workshops, the guidelines are  physical experiences based on trust and making instinctive movement conscious in the body, mind and soul through guided improvisation tasks, the aim of which is the conscious use of muscle memory. In her own creative works, the aim is always to find a new kind of viewpoint, to create a channel of communication, a stage world in the light of the fusion of different branches of art. In her most recent performance (The Dark Night of the Soul), she examined the situations of an individual’s mental block through the fusion of dance, theatre, philosophy and painting.
