Harangozó season ticket


One-act dance pieces

Godfrey Reggio's 1982 cult film, with music written by Philip Glass, is a wordless poem depicting modern man's loss of balance with images of unique power.Now Dóra Barta has conceived for the Erkel's stage her own personalised "alienation mythology" about the tragedy of humanity's since then even more destructively wasteful treatment of nature through another silent visual language: that of dance, in a production that is likewise set to Glass's repetitive music. The Hungarian title, which paraphrases Hamlet's apocalyptic words "time is out of joint", harkens back somewhat to the Shakespeare theme for the 2015/16 season.

The choreographer Béla Földi has found similarly exciting material in Ray Bradbury's science fiction work The Martian Chronicles, with the magical/mystical journey accompanied by music that the ensemble Solaris had written for Bradbury's stories thirty years ago and which has been a favourite of discerning music lovers ever since. The two one-acts together form a highly-anticipated dance premiere from the Budapest Spring Festival.
