Jinx 103 is a breathtakingly energetic dance of lightning fast footwork, leg twisting and weaving, high kicks and turning jumps. It is also a vibrant body percussion with complex sound patterns of clapping and slapping, clicking and stamping.
This dynamic performance mixes traditional and contemporary dance and has engaged audiences around the world including Lebanon, Mexico, Cuba, Italy and South Africa.
Hungarians József Trefeli and Gábor Varga grew up in USSR and Australia respectively where each trained in both contemporary and traditional Hungarian folk dance. They came together to make Jinx 103, combining this common dance heritage learnt on opposite sides of the globe.
Why JINX 103? In many cultures, when two people accidentally say the same thing simultaneously, there is a tradition to say a word quickly to ward off bad luck - in English it's “jinx”, while in Hungary it's “103”.
