Coincidance Dance Theatre: Aurora

dance drama in one act
Budapest, Városmajori Szabadtéri Színpad, 28 July 2018 19:30
By combining a tale known by everybody, a grandiose classical piece and contemporary dancing, this year’s Városmajor Open-Air Theatre dance premiere will feature Coincidance Dance Theatre performing a new version of the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty. It will be an entirely innovative contemporary dance production, breaking with all the traditions connected to previous classical Sleeping Beauty-adaptations.


The performance takes a multi-layered approach to the original story by discovering its wide-ranging symbolism. The focus is on a girl growing up to become a woman as the various layers of the story are unfolded, including blood, the impenetrable thorn bush or the illusion of a 100 years passing. The performance also has a contemporary layer where the original story is given a psychological reinterpretation through contemporary dance – and the help of Tchaikovsky’s immortal music.

The performances is recommended for age 10 and up.
