SLOVENSKÉ TANCE (ŽIVOTY SVETIEL)

Slovak Dances (The Lives of Lights)

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

This ballet stage performance aspires to show you that Slovak Folk songs are no exception when it comes to passionate elements.

Peter Breiner, Slovak composer and musician living in New York, arranged folk songs into a modern form. His suite of 13 compositions is comprised of elements of jazz and folklore, but also musical improvisation. It is full of contrasts, energy, and humor.

Natália Horečná, a choreographer and director, created a story to accompany the compositions. With her previous thirty choreographies performed abroad, Slovak Dances (The Lives of Lights) is her first full-length ballet stage performance in Slovakia. The stage performance is built upon the contrast of light and darkness. The stage decoration is left to a minimum and thus the spotlight is focused on the dancers as well as the authenticity and veracity of emotionsthey mediate to the audience.

Accept our invitation to a remarkable dance celebration, which will make you look deep within yourself where you can discover your inner tenderness andspontaneity.

Duration: 2 hours including one intermission
