Tricks & Tracks: Pál Frenák was born in Budapest, in 1957, and settled down in Paris in 1983. He established his own Dance Company in 1989, and made his first choreography in France the same year, titled “Ter”. In the following years, mainly staging improvisational pieces, he worked with György Kurtág, Patrick Schneider and several other contemporary composers. His first real hit was the Les Palets / Skate-boards; this show, just as all his other works, could be seen by the Hungarian audience as well, as part of the Budapest Autumn Festivals, or as individual performances.
Since 1998 Frenák has been working more and more in Hungary, the majority of dancers of his Company are Hungarian. The premiere of his last three shows (Out of the Cage, Tricks & Tracks and his latest, the Festen/Feast ) were held in Budapest, in the House of Contemporary Arts, the “Trafó”.
