Bethlen Theater – (District, VII., 3. Bethlen Square)

This evening before tomorrow’s premiere was at the media presentation @ the Bethlen Theater.  The Theater in short is the Central European Dance Theater – progressive – stylish – contemporary. One of the most innovative dance companies in Hungary. The pieces of their unique repertoire strive for actuality and reflectivity.

The theater brought on stage one of Shakespeare’s best-known the bittersweet drama about the nature of love, whereas different couples get lost in an enchanted world,  one love gives way to another. The emotions and desires, suppressed in the daylight and hidden in elegant poses, show themselves in dark but attractive torsos on St. John’s night, and we cannot escape them. However, the dawn is approaching, and upon waking up, everyone has to decide for themselves whether their daytime or nighttime reflection is truer or more attractive … just like in a dream anything can happen in the mist summer night.

About the show: Shakespeare’s emblematic work forces us to confront our basic human emotions that we would prefer to keep quiet out of shame. The author does all of this with incredible love and playfulness, we are almost forced to accept our love desire, fears and power games.

The Midsummer Night dance performance will give a new idea to the teenagers and young adult audience, presenting the exciting world of contemporary dance. The showtime is 50 minutes.

Its Director-choreographer Krisztián Gergye –  already a recurring creator – who worked together with co-choreographer László Mádi on the reimagining of the legendary English author’s classic.
