    The production is followed by a discussion.

    Volitant received the Special Prize at Festival 10 Sentidos organized in Valencia, May 2017.

    The performance is included in the prestigious Aerowaves Twenty18 list.

    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, 14 June2017, Színház

    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.

    Rita Góbi (1983) is a dancer, choreographer and dance teacher. She was born in Novi Sad, former Yugoslavia, now Serbia where she started dancing at the city ballet school, then at the Hungarian Dance Academy in Budapest and finally in Amsterdam. She began her career with Ballet Pécs, later dancing with Yvette Bozsik Company, Réka Szabó Company (The Symptoms), L1 Dance Lab, Performance Sirkus (Finland), and Theatar Mimart (Serbia). She worked with renowned choreographers Anna Réti, Klára Pataky, Robert Lingren, Andrea Nagy, Aniko Zsalakovics, Éva Duda and Krisztián Gergye. She was a participant of various international dance workshops and residency programs like the US-based OMI DANCE Residency, and SE.S.TA-KoresponDance. Czech audience is familiar with her work because of her co-production project with Andrea Miltnerová and Jan Komárek in 2016 named Counterpoint. Her choreographies are based on intuition and experimentation, but are precisely constructed by repetitive, miniature movements and grotesque, distorted elements that she consequently transforms. She loves minimalism, physicality of the body and its extremes.
