Lóránd’s work is constantly looking for the meaning behind the movements, sometimes in clear and simple way, sometimes with reaching complex extremities of the body. His experimenter thoughts are mingling with the mastered contemporary dance techniques, so thus his classes are very interesting and unique. He is using the maximum physical endowments on his unique, special body-language. The often used floor-technique on the classes seeks to experience the fluidity. Combinations and the partner-works on the workshops are characterized by the extremely isolated and self-conscious body-use.
