Carmina Burana is a wonderful challenge for a choreographer, yet an enormous task to complete.
Orff’s fantastic composition lifts the medieval student songs to a whole new, higher level. The sublime beauty of the music inspires a choreographer’s confession. Director-choreographer Vincze Balázs focuses on the terrible effects of our self-destructive and mechanized world, his worries for humanity and traditional moral values. The piece celebrates the sacredness of life, it hints that there still must be hope for a better future.
The artistic director, director-choreographer, Balázs Vincze is an expert on adapting popular literary classics for the dance stage. His choreographies are passionate and and dinamic, the performances are spectacular and audience friendly dance theatre pieces. Vincze always gets inspiration from the dancers' characters. Their exceptional artistic talent, high standard technical and acting skills are what make all the productions of the company outstandingly original.
