HERE AND NOW STUDIO 5 Ballet


Each year, the themed concerts of Máté Bella, Bence Kutrik, Árpád Solti, Judit Varga and András Gábor Virágh, that is, STUDIO 5, organised in the Solti Hall serve a single purpose: to bring about the most natural relationship possible between the general public and contemporary music. This time they have selected contemporary dance as the tool to attain this objective. Its rhythm, nonverbal techniques, specific structure organized by time, are similar in many ways to the structure and expressive power of music. At this, their sixth themed recital, they intend to demonstrate that the relation of ballet, dance and music is as relevant and alive in the 21st century as the 18th century intertwining of French court ballet and opera, or the early 20th century collaboration between Stravinsky and the Diaghilev company. In this spirit, Noémi Kulcsár, Harangozó Gyula Prize-winning dancer, has prepared choreographies for the premières in Hungary of the programme with the assistance of students of the Hungarian Dance Academy.
