Viktor Szeri (b. 1993) is an independent dancer and choreographer based in Budapest, Hungary. In his pieces, Szeri combines the elements of performance, music and moving image. He reflects on current issues of his generation while examining subcultures and alternative identities. For him dance is a way of expression that allows him to question rigid social structures and power relations. With his performaces, he invites the audience to an intimate world where free thinking is a driving force. As a choreographer he experiments with fluctuating emotional states and aims to create a visceral experience.
Viktor Szeri presented his pieces in various theatres and galleries in Budapest. He performed his solo piece ‘∆YOU TAKE MY BREATH AWAY∆’ at Collegium Hungaricum in Berlin. In 2017 he participated in a collaborative project at Moving Visegrad Contemporary Dance Choreographic Residency in Istanbul, and received the DanceWEB2017 scholarship from ImpulsTanz Festival in Vienna. In 2019 he was an artist in residency at Performensk Festival in Minsk and at Meetfactory in Prague supported by Visegrad Fund. His recent project – realized with Gyula Muskovics and Tamás Páll – was awarded an I-Portunus reisdency funded by Creative Europe. As a dancer he worked together with several choreographers such as Doris Uhlich, Csaba Molnár and Imre Vass. Currently he is studying media design at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest.
