At the Colony of Artists on the Zero Day of the 13th Budapest International Circus Festival, was introduced this year’s tender winner in the “Staféta” competition “The Saint Witch”. The production was brought alive by Dániel Levente Pál co-founded with Ákos Kalmár. They both welcomed upon arrival to the premiere  the audience. It is a new piece produced by the Capital Circus of Budapest. “The Saint Witch” is the highest degree of artistic elements, Hungarian folk music and folk dance. It is indeed a perfect artwork. production.

The venue is in the middle of forest where demons, fairy witches, music playing tree trunks, come to life the measure of time and the eternal struggle between good and bad.  And as in many fairy tales here also is a never ending love story. The tale is about an ethereal woman and the magical power of a mortal instrument maker.

The production in a nutshell … Like in the fairy tale … the audience are taken into the middle of a magical forest where demons, fairies and witches come-and-go in the foggy and mysterious land with strange birds and creature sounds surrounding them. These creatures appearing also express their inner fears, struggles, and desires, just like the human being. Unworldly creatures appear to humans and want to seduce them into their own world. The play is built on a never ending love story where an ethereal woman and the magical power of a mortal instrument maker.

The piece reveals whether the humans are willing to go with them to another world or would they rather be willing to return to their own world.

No need in having Hungarian language knowledge, perfectly can follow the sound and artistic acts.

It is a real fairy tale, could be a little scary for kindergarten kids, would recommend it to children of school age. It is an excellent family program.
