Timothy and the Things

* * * * *

Who is Timothy? Briefly. Timothy is a realistically fictional character who was created by and also based on one of the numerous truest realities. I’m sure, you’ve already seen him several times. He’s the hidden figure, creator, artistic director, hero, greatest master and spiritual leader of the brand ‘Timothy and the Things’. Everyone knows him … Ok, I have to admit that I’ve never met him in person but I almost feel as if we were best buddies. By the way, I’m László Fülöp, co-founder of this unofficial company based in Budapest, Hungary. I studied at Budapest Contemporary Dance Academy between 2006 and 2010. After that, as a freelancer I’ve worked and collaborated with many artists and companies in Hungary and abroad, and created several shows as well. In 2016 I’ve got Viktor Fülöp Scholarship as an emerging young choreographer and in 2018 received a grant from the Gaubier’s Fund as a dancer, performer.

And what are all those ‘Things’ about? The core topic of my interest revolves around exploring and analysing, from every conceivable angle, issues relating to all forms of human social behaviour and communication. Completely without generalizations or prejudices, in a simple, pure and personal way. I find extremely important to let people see and understand those inner processes which influence and guide their acts and decisions on a subconscious level.
