“This has been the first occasion in my career when the choreography has not been inspired by the music, and the creative process has not been guided by a classic plot. The creativity of our team was set in motion by Victor Vasarely’s fantastically powerful works, as these paintings shaped the rhythm of the music, the dynamics of the choreography, the space, the props, the costumes, the visuals. I myself was surprised how much Vasarely’s work live, affect and energize the viewer. I was looking at them, until they sucked me in, came to life, started suggesting rhythms, steps, scenes. Every etude is a vision. It’s an odd feeling, but it’s like getting inside Vasarely’s works. I am grateful for this encounter.”
Harangozó, Imre Zoltán and Seregi Award-winning Artist of Merit dancer and choreographer Balázs Vincze made the first choreographies for operetta and musical productions in 2001. Since 2006, he has created numerous great ballet productions for the Pécs Ballet. He has a deft hand at adapting well-known and popular literary classics for the stage, showing a superb sense of proportion in rendering the plot through the language of dance. Special and spectacular, his contemporary dance style has classical foundations, and while technically advanced, it is accessible for broad audiences. His choreographies for prose and musical theatre as well as ballet are performed with great success across the country. For Müpa Budapest, he created the choreographies of Candide, Chrysanthemums/Le Villi and The Land of Smiles, among others.
