Timothy and the Things

Skeletons in the closet, elephants in all the rooms, not even talking about that damn beam in my own eye, and also that owl tells the sparrow that her head is too big… and so, we just brake those pitchers one after another, while the lame dog overtake from the left, and that’s for sure that one swallow is not enough for anything… and you can buy a rose without a thorn, but that is also included in the price… what would be our goal? To find the disappeared gray donkey (in this case the elephant) in this thick fog and nab it among two twinkling, scowling, swallowing, sighing or pouting. Just because in this case all the things could finally get where they belong… maybe…

 “The spirit is harshly fresh, the choreography is diversely witty intelligently bedding for humour and irony: László Fülöp is wonderfully juggling with the symbiosis of thought and movement. Fülöp speaks an abstract language but his communication is crystal clear. About the behemoth who occasionally lurks into our relationships sucking out the healthy air around us, about the thousand shades of misunderstanding and being misunderstood, about the successes and failures of communication, the gestures of acceptance and rejection…” Csaba Králl / critic /
