My “Fight Clubs” are political soft spaces of care and empowerment, where through the practice of play fighting and self-defense, we liberate our body and voice, discover our power and challenge our strength, and develop self-confidence and resistance.
Against the intimidating and objectifying male gaze used as an instrument of women’s oppression, we regularly do eye-gazing exercises, and learn how to confront it instead of looking away. We reinforce our eyes as a muscle, and rehearse to gaze back proudly again, again, and again. Making our eye muscles stronger and stronger, we gaze back day after day with a little bit more confidence, and a little bit less of fear.
"Born in Budapest (Hungary), in 1983, and graduated from the ENSAPC Art School (France) in 2016, I am working with art as a means of connection and with education as a means of activism. I am making full evening pieces and short-format performances, holding multi-sensorial political soft-spaces, creating immersive choreographic experiences, and building rebellious communities. In the past 8 years, I dreamed up the School of Disobedience, founded an artist collective then my own performance art company (Gray Box), launched an annual festival (Wildflowers), exhibited in a toilet, performed in a boxing ring, curated in an elevator, gave lectures in a techno club, run classes in a hammam... I like everything that is unusual, unexpected, and nonconformist. I am not kind with assholes and learned how to follow my own path. I think the party is outside the canon."
