Choreographer: Enrico MORELLI
Morelli tells the story of a wedding ceremony, in the course of which happiness caused by the joyful event is mixed with pain caused by loss and with discomposure at the gate of life’s new secret. This mixed emotion commences a dance, which dissipates the initial fears originating from the mysteries of sexuality and death. The characters in Morelli’s choreography slowly and gently become the participants of a kind of initiation ceremony from their own pure reality, right before our eyes. This is the initiation ceremony of all humanity, which in an extraordinary dance of joy attempts to forget the sadness of the event since the occasion was fundamentally intended for happiness. Step by step, as the choreography progresses emotion and passion intensify. The distance between the characters is gradually diminished all the way to the point where the fears and doubts slowly disappear, therefore it becomes possible to step through the continuously opening gate that leads to a new life.

Georges Bizet’s renown opera inspired the premiere of the Bartók Dance Theatre. However, our performance is not set in historic Seville, but in present day Hungary. Let us say, in a small rural community. Here, the members of a very closed community populate this passionate, immersive story, with Carmen, the beautiful gypsy girl at their head.
A long time ago we were birds, like all other beautiful birds.
We had no home, nor house, Yet, the world belonged to us.
However dreary this life is, We are birds, still.
Our wings may have turned arms, the skies still await us.

Dance is death. A sacrifice for a more beautiful and hopeful future. Stravinsky composed a deeply buried, still, inextinguishable instinct into his piece; the instinct of our belief in a world order based on laws. What do we sacrifice today? What do we dance today? Attila Kun gives a contemporary reinterpretation to The Rite of Spring, which is based on the beliefs and the folk music of the Russian Steppes.
The Princess Of Colophon retells the story of Arachne, the princess turned into a spider, who, confident in her new weaving skills, challenges Athena to a competition. The piece was choreographed to Béla Bartók IVth String Quartet. Gábor Halász does not attempt to display the story in a straightforward way, but his arrangement provides an easy-to- follow and flowing theatrical experience based on the relations between the characters.
