Volitant could be considered a sci-fi remake of the Dying Swan, it is a solo of immense discipline. It will be performed in the New Generation Museum with extraordinary atmosphere. AerowavesTwenty18 in London included the Volitantin the twenty best dance performances in Europe.

Volitantis a fascinating solo of choreographer and dancer Rita Góbiwinning one award after other. Last year Volitantwas awarded the Special Prize of the 10 SentidosFestival in Valencía, this year it was selected by AerowavesTwenty18 as one of the twenty best dance performances in Europe. Rita through enlarged micro-movements evokes the state between: „not here anymore“ and „not there yet“. Amazing precision and virtuosity, strictly minimalistic choreographic tools and dynamic tension connected to original score by DávidSzegőcomposed of sounds of the Morse code make Volitanta compact theatre experience. Volitantwill be performed in New Generation Museum where the extraordinary atmosphere of the performance will be underlined by lights.

Place: Meeting point

"This is a solo of great discipline, flawless from start to finish, without an iota of idleness. It is concise and compact.” Csaba Králl, critic

“It is hard to talk about Góbi’s performance without talking about her, as Rita Góbi and her performance are one and the same.” Márta Péter, Tánckritika 

"Rita Góbi's explosive solo dance is filled with subtle associations: it is not hard to discover a futuristic interpretation, a kind of science-fiction remake of the Dying Swan: but instead of soft and lyrical tunes, it is performed to Dávid Szegő's harsh, repetitive and robotic noise sounds.”  Tamás Halász, Színház
