Pál Frenák: “I’m becoming more and more annoying so I can represent my authenticity”

CAGE: space that can be seen through but at the same time, it is illusion-like, which contains our world’s chaotic system and it provides millions of creative opportunities for the artists. Pál Frenák’s new premiere, which is a collaboration with Radikal Dance, is introduced with this motto. Fanni Esterházy, Eoin Mac Donncha, Milán Maurer and Anibal dos Santos are given the chance to show what they can do with this cage.



You were inspired by Francis Bacon. What was the starting point of Cage?

Following Bacon’s ideas, in the beginning I always have a starting point, and while working, I find things that can take over this starting point or at least its role. Here, the cage itself is the theme and the scenography as well. I created this performance with a new dance company, Radikal Dance, in which the artists are trying themselves and their skills as choreographers. However, they do not want to be a part of the commercialized, new generational hustle that we live in, where you always have to create something new, the sooner the better.
