Lóránd’s work is constantly looking for the meaning behind the movements, sometimes in a clear and simple way, other times with pushing the body to complex extremes. His experimental ideas mingle with mastered contemporary dance techniques, making his classes very interesting and unique. He uses maximum physical endowments in his unique, special body-language, seeking ultimate fluidity of motion through well-developed floor techniques. Extremely isolated and self-conscious body use characterize the combinations and partner-works in the workshops.
