With our project we wish like to create a new tradition, which enables more and more nations to get an insight to each other’s culture in more depth and thus enable them to grow their own national artistic values. The workshop would enable the invitation of foreign guest artists with whom new choreographies could be created and performed.
The desired outcome of the project is to provide an opportunity for the participating national and foreign guest artists to get to know each other’s tradition, culture and working methods throughout the choreographies that they create during the two weeks long workshop.
In February 2017, our workshop has been held at the Hungarian Dance Academy with the contribution of the guest artists from the Oslo National Academy of Arts and from the Slovenian National Opera and Ballet Theatre, moreover, with the contribution of Mark Spradling, dancer and choreographer of the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.
During the workshop the national and the foreign guest students rehearsed together with the help and guidance of the ballet masters.
During the journey to get to know each other’s culture, several programs held at the National Dance Academy have been made open for the public; introductory pieces performed by the Norwegian and the Hungarian students, Hungarian “táncház” introducing the elements of the traditional Hungarian folkdance, as well as a session dedicated to get to know the gipsy dance and culture.
The result of the two weeks long workshop has been presented at the MOM Cultural Centre before 300 spectators. The audience gave the young artists an ovation at the end of the performance.
We are proud that the goal of the ballet workshop got realised without residues.
