Bolero

Bolero

contemporary dance in three acts

This contemporary dance is the first triple build performance of the group. The acts are not inextricably connected with each other: in the case of triple builds, we are not talking about a story built on each other, but rather performances on their own that are separated by pauses.

The first act’s opening etude, Blablabla makes us laughs on ourselves, and on our everyday problems. The second piece of the act, Aquarell Rainbow invokes a bittersweet mood, and the final part, Kisses is a cheerful ‘dance-puzzle’. The second act shows the so-called Closed Curtains, in which at a certain point the curtain rises, and it allows us to gaze in wonder at an unknown or maybe familiar world –probably our inner world- with the help of numerous actors. In the final act, the piece Lipstick transforms the well-known melody in Bolero (Ravel) into dance, and with rising tempo and energy reaches its peak towards the end. The choreographer for most productions is Attila Egerházi, the director of Royal Ballet Fehérvár.
