Dance Canon - Hommage a Kodály Zoltán

Hungarian State Folk Ensemble - Hungarian Heritage House

The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble’s new production is based on Kodály’s life work as reference. Similarly to formerly staged productions, tradition appears with a radical vigour, in symbiosis with our times’ contemporary manifestations.

The story emerges from the small movements of an imaginary community to the music composed and collected by Zoltán Kodály (and his contemporaries: Béla Bartók and László Lajtha). In the scenes, we can follow the formation and loss of human relations, joys and sorrows, and the rituals of the everyday and of holidays.

Dance Canon includes excerpts from well-known and popular work from Kodály, such as Háry János, Mátra Pictures, Kallo Double Dance, Psalmus Hungaricus or the Evening Song.

Richly shaded, lyrical-associative images, stage activities through playfully changing spectrums of space and time take us to the conclusion: the cathartic declaration of the victory of human existence.
