The Symptoms was founded by Reka Szabo in 2002. The productions created by the company are carefully thought out, intellectual and humorous, mixing dance with text-based acting, in some productions building on strong visual elements or original music and the use of special effects. The Symptoms has created 21 productions and two short films during the last 11 years, and has been touring nationally and internationally since, presenting their work in cities including London, Berlin, Köln, Helsinki, Prague, Kaunas, Sarajevo, Warsaw, Bratislava and Vienna. The Symptoms received 16 national and international awards for their productions, the latest one „Rudolf Laban Award” for the best Hungarian dance performance in 2012, received for the piece „Vote”.
Currently the company is touring the new solo of Reka Szabo and preparing a new production called Commonplace, directed by Petra Ardai from SPACE Theatergroup (NL), to be premiered at Trafo in Budapest in November. A mix of dance, stories and sounds, incorporating snapshots from public spaces, the personal stories of the by-passers. The international version will reflect on local reality, including the local stories of the place to be performed.
