Total Dance


Ballet recital in two parts
One night, two choreographers, three choreographies: Total Dance. For this show, the Hungarian National Ballet has picked out three popular pieces from its wide-ranging modern repertoire.
A wall, 3 female and 6 male dancers, and Ravel's Bolero. This is the base of Swedish choreographer Johan Inger's one-act ballet, Walking Mad, which he originally created for the Netherlands Dans Theatre in 2001. The minimalist space takes newer and newer shapes for the ever intensifying music, and newer and newer characters appear in it, in more and more mad situations and states.
Jiří Kylián paid homage to the genius of Mozart on the 200th anniversary of his death. Featured in this uniquely atmospheric ballet are six women, six men and six swords. In addition to the weapons, other props include black, baroque-style clothing and bizarre crinolines. The symbolic image in the dance piece presents a world where aggression, sexuality, silence, music, vulnerability, interdependence and eternal human beauty exist together in their own sense of poetry.

"I've decided that I cannot simply create a dance series reflecting the composer's sense of humour and music genious. Instead, I've choreographed six visibly confusing scenes..." - wrote Jiří Kylián about Six dances. In the ballet, Mozartian playfulness and absurd reality are transplanted into the language of movement.
