4Culture Association announces the launching of the new project Hardrive – Deep Inside, which will include a new collaboration with Judith State, nominated by 4Culture, as a Creative Crossroads artist, within the European network Life Long Burning - Towards A Sustainable Eco-System for Contemporary Dance in Europe.
Judith will benefit from the support of the European network for her artistic research and for the development of a new choreographic creation.
Judith State is a professional dancer and choreographer based in Bucharest, with a classical ballet foundation and a foreign language bachelor’s degree in English and Spanish.
She likes to search and manifest herself through movement, acting and singing and, in the past few years, she’s been juggling with these means of expression in contemporary performances, theatre works and film. Her current research (which also involves musician Radu Dumitriu and István Téglás, performer, deals with the processes of remembering and traveling back in time to the very personal layers of childhood and her half Hungarian roots, tackling questions such as “how the intercultural mixture sets the prospects of an “undecided” personality?” and “how much do we belong to our early experiences and our molding and interpretation of them?”.
It is thus mainly an autobiographical approach that generally combines movement, spoken text, singing and electronic live music all together.
She is also interested in ways of “arranging” and choreographing ordinary, pedestrian movement and transforming usual bodily sounds into music, and she will focus in her following work on the “humanity” of everyday life in movement.
