Zsolt Bodoki-Halmen: subject to change

to notate
what one wants
to hear, or
to instruct
another what
to do, or
to follow guides and

folds on a paper
marks and directions
notes fading away as time passes

demarcations of paths to take
of streams to follow

notice the focus,
attention, presence,
width and depth,
angle, saturation, stroke

a ritual in passing time,
as it becomes a repeatable series of events

paths around a structure
an ever changing order of paths, around a structure

the repeatability of ever changing orders, of paths around structures
a guide to the repeatability of an ever changing order of paths around a structure

the notation as it becomes
a guide to the repeatability
of an ever changing order
of paths around a structure

the structure - fixed and rigid
the approach taken - flexible

Anna Virág’s work is unique in its combination of intuition and conscious design, classical tradition and constant experimentation, and the coexistence of different qualities and surfaces. Her works range from solo and chamber works based on classical traditions, to experimental electronic pieces, film and theatre scores and even trash rap songs. She can be inspired by a mathematical problem or a social issue, contemporary and avant-garde jazz or free improvisation.
Anna Virág Virág has been admitted to the Budapest Academy of Music in 2020. In the same year, she won the Müpa Music Competition. She is currently studying composition at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.

Bakk-Dávid László was born on January 19, 1986, in Târgu Secuiesc. He completed my high school education in classical guitar at the Plugor Sándor School of Arts in Sfântu Gheorghe. In 2005, he began his university studies in classical guitar at the Faculty of Music of Transilvania University in Brașov, graduating in 2009. Between 2005 and 2011, he taught classical guitar in Târgu Secuiesc. In 2009-2010, he worked as a musical director for Udvartér Theatre. In 2011, I enrolled in Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, earning a BA in Applied Composition. His BA thesis was based on Federico García Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba. Following this, he pursued an MA in Composition, graduating in 2017 with compositions like PROVERB2 and Ex abysso. From 2014 to 2019, he taught guitar, music theory, and composition at Óbuda Waldorf School. Between 2019 and 2022, he worked as a freelance musician. Since October 2022, he has been a member of the Harag György Ensemble at the Northern Theater in Satu Mare, working as a musical director and composer. He has composed over 20 concert pieces, including Duo for Flute and Guitar, Missa Brevissima, and PROVERB2.

He has worked in theatre productions both in Romania and abroad, most notably in theatres such as Deutsches Theater, Berlin, Staatstheater Hannover, Örkény Theatre, Budapest, Galiaskar Kamal Tatar Academic Theatre, Kazan.

Panna Adorjáni is a theatre thinker, performance maker, and interdisciplinary artist. She is a dramaturg and theatre studies expert by training, but she considers her twelve years of classical music education to be formative as well. She signed her first theatre contract when she was 16 years old, performing as a violinist in a show; since then, she has worked in a variety of theatre-related jobs. She has worked as a critic and editor, as a dramaturg, as a director’s assistant, as a prompter, as a musician, as a composer, as a festival organiser, as an interpreter, as a translator, as a performer, as a theatre maker, and as a workshop and seminar presenter. She is currently concentrating on her PhD and working in collaborative settings. She is intrigued by the possibilities for reconciling theory and practice, as well as the ways in which theatrical hierarchies could be reconsidered in order to generate horizontal and interdisciplinary processes. Her PhD research focuses on patterns of collective creation in Romanian and Hungarian underground theatrical cultures prior to the regime change.

Dániel Láng is a musician currently living in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. He started learning music when he was 11 years old, he studied classical percussion in Cluj-Napoca and jazz drums in Budapest.
