Osim spektakularnog doživljaja predstave u kome su goli i umetnica i publika je nešto što se ne doživljava svakog dana, postaje nešto se pamti celog života… O samom danu nemam više šta da dodam. Sve piše u tekstu…
Međutim, nastanak tog teksta nije bio tako jednostavan. Kao i obično, nakon putovanja uvek napišem tekst o tome onako kako sam ga videla i doživela, iz ličnog ugla i sopstvene perspektive. Međutim, kod ovog teksta sam imala zastoj. Nakon napisanog podužeg uvodnog dela, dugo sam razmišljala i smišljala kako bi tekst trebalo da izgleda. Nisam imala puno klasičnog materijala. Umetnica je ušla na scenu noseći dugu plavu periku, pričala na mađarskom i onda igrala. Nisam imala ideju kako to da opišem. Dugo sam sedela ispred ekrana računara gledajući u beli virtuelni papir… O čemu da pišem, dugo sam se pitala? Na kraju sam došla na ideju: pisaću o osećanjima koja sam doživela tokom performansa… To umem… Tako su počele da se nižu reči, novi pasusi i rečenice, kao perlice lančića. Svaki detalj je izazivao još nekoliko misli koje sam brzo morala da zapišem unapred, pa posle sređujem… Tekst je ispao toliko dobar, pohvaljen da je inspirativan, da se i sama Marta više puta zahvalila i javno i privatno. Bila je očarana. Svako svoje umetničke snove sniva drugačije i izražava na drugačiji način.
Nakon završenog performansa pod nazivom „25/45“ i obaveznog potpisivanja odobrenja da se fotografije objave (Geza i ja smo potpisali), Geza Lennert, novosadski fotograf mađarskog porekla najvišeg nivoa Exellence FIAP umetničkog fotografa po „International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP) Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique“ standardima, majstorski je obavio svoj posao zvaničnog fotografa događaja, osvetlio, postavio stativ za aparat, aranžirao, igrao se, fotografisao, uživao u svom zadatku, te napravio još jedan podjednako lep događaj nakon glavnog dela. Svi smo uživali u tome.
Tekst je, naravno, objavljen u časopisu Focus koji objavljuje Međunarodna naturistička federacija pod mađarskom zastavom, a fotografije u uobičajeno malom formatu na sajtu FENHU Federacije naturista Mađarske.

Contemporary Nude Dance in Budapest
“25/45” Marta Ladjanski’s Jubilee Presentation
Naked performans in Multi Art Centar Bakelit in Budapest
Industrial Zone in the south of Budapest, old textile factory turned into modern Multi Art Center, small Bakelit logo on metal door, steep industrial carpeted stares, cozy environment filled with positive energy, warm indoor temperature suitable for undressing, discreet lightning, friendly faces of the people waiting to get in, drinks offered in small buffet, announced participants, tickets obtained in separate room – The Magic Of Naked Dance In Bakelit Theatre Can Start – NOW!
At the entrance Rózsa Markács from FENHU was greeting the participants from Hungary and abroad – from Thailand, Serbia and Macedonia contained 10 international visitors, and with about another 10 percent of the audience that were no naturists or nudists, but accepted the terms of participating – that made in total of about 60 spectators. Very special member of the audience was Marta’s mother. Tense feelings of expectation could be felt in the air.
We entered one modern theatre with two additional spaces – first was the place to take off your shoes, another was to take off your clothes and leave it on hangers. Only sitting towels were allowed in. Some put their towels on the chairs provided, some found the floor comfortable…
A woman came to the stage with long blond artificial wig as an opposite of natural state we were all in.
Lights. Blond wig. Hungarian Words.
Removing of artificial wig resembled removing of artificial barriers we all decided to remove – our clothes.
Dance. Geometry. Minimalistic.
Floor figures in which muscle control was playing important part of the message. “With thick, muscular legs she is hardly a conventional dance beauty. That’s what makes her so watchable.” (www.navke.hu)
The Dance started in slow pace, changing positions with geometrical precision. Floor figures of repeatedly empowered sights. In some parts there was anxiety and other deep emotions shown. Involving audience into the play. For every emotion presented, for every stage of the play, for every different sensation it was like there was direct link of energy exchange between the Artist and the Audience, and instead of shouting a silent whisper would be sufficient. The connection was wide open.
Energy. Strength. Power.
Love. Anger. Air.
Enchantment. Magic. Nature.
Darkness. Silence. Awakening.
At first moment we couldn’t comprehend where we were. It felt so good to be united with the play, it felt like being The One with The Others, it felt like we were all existing in another dimension.
For a brief moment, we really were…
. . .
What an experience… What an adventure… We were feeling blessed to be part of this memorable experience, and all said in one voice – IT WAS WORTH IT! The participant from Macedonia was sharing the same feeling, and it was important especially for his travel took 1600 km both ways to be part of this special celebration of Marta’s 45th birthday and the 25th anniversary of going back to dance – 25/45.
As international visitors we were no different from Hungarians that were there. We shall come again to feel again wonderful atmosphere that prevailed, to be united with the people who understand, and love universal beauty of art just like we do. We are thankful to the organizer that invited us, and we are calling you to come to us, some day, to some distant city, to enjoy together in miracle that naked art provides.

“Contemporary Nude Dance in Budapest – Not for the first time, and not for the last! A place for both nude dancers and a nude audience. The idea came directly from Márta Ladjánszki who came into contact with one of the founding member of the Federation of Naturists in Hungary (FENHU), the Virtual Association of Naturists (NaVKE), more than 10 years ago. At that time, several successful dance performances were organized for naturist audience. In 2018, the idea was taken up again and a series of dance evenings was launched for a nude audience, as a cooperation of L1 Association with NaVKE.”
(Written by Rózsa Markács, Secretary General of FENHU, translated by Ilona L’Homme)
About the Artist:
Márta LADJÁNSZKI (H) studied classical ballet, gymnastic apparatus work and jazz- and modern dance in Budapest and in Vienna. In 1996 she was the co-founder of KOMPmÁNIA contemporary dance theatre company where Ladjánszki worked both as performer and co-choreographer. In 2001 she joined the L1 Association and has been acting as its artistic vice-director ever since. Being a freelance choreographer and dancer in Budapest she keeps on seeking opportunities to present her work in the field of contemporary dance to those who are open to and interested in her works of art and her provision for the human body.
“Her inspiration comes directly from the body itself and transforms the inner thoughts into visible pieces of information. Ladjánszki firmly believes that we are all different (not only physically) and this makes our lives richer. This is why she celebrates the body in every piece she creates.”
“The body is a visible form of personality” (Mary Starks Whitehouse)
Next performance is scheduled for Thursday Jun 6 at 19:00 – LetMeC_natur
