Thomas Körtvélyessy

he, his, they, theirs

Thomas Körtvélyessy (HU/DE/NL) has been working to re-form dance from its central sensation of movement in order to make sense in the moment from the mid-1990s until the present. Being a 3rd generation refugee with Hungarian and German roots, security and presence are major needs. As part of this work he became a certified Master Teacher of Kinetic Awareness® and is an executive of the Artistic Estate of its originator, Elaine Summers, while continuing his own dance-art projects, exploring traditional, (post)modern, site-specific, notational, improvised and Queer & Gay-centered choreography in a global context. www.realdancecompany.org
