Dance Canon - Hommage à Zoltán Kodály

Performance by Hungarian State Folk Ensemble
Budapest, Hagyományok Háza, 13 September 2019 19:00
A dynamic dance performance based on the oeuvre of Hungarian composer and ethnomusicologist Zoltán Kodály. Tradition is presented in a radically vivid way in this piece, being symbiotically attached to contemporary forms of expression.


The performance follows the life cycle of a fictive community, accompanied by the music of Zoltán Kodály, but also featuring the traditional folk songs he had collected. The scenes represent the course of human relationships, the joys and sorrows of everyday life, and the rituals which are connected to all that. Through these richly nuanced, lyrical-associative images we finally reach the denouement, celebrating the triumph of life.
