The Metropolitan Grand Circus and the Imre Baross Artist Training Institute (BIAK) celebrated World Circus Day in an unusual way: Ukrainian and Hungarian artist educators are caught! They presented a joint program at the Artists’ Colony and handed over props from the proceeds of BIAK’s previous program, Midsummer Night’s Dreamers, to Ukrainian artist educators.

World Circus Day has been celebrated on the third Saturday of April every year since 2007, but this year has been postponed to April 21, as the hospitality artists of Kiev and Kharkiv performed in Monaco with the organizing committee of the Monte Carlo International Circus Festival in a series of lectures. But already it was previously decided that a joint performance with Hungarian artists would be planned on World Day.

Before the one and a half hour presentation, the director of BIAK, Dénes Gábor Kovács, greeted the audience and reminded them that the co-production of Ukrainian and Hungarian students is a message to the world: acceptance, co-creation and thinking together is created.

Secretary of State for Culture Peter Fekete always carries with him a cultural treasure, this time asking the Museum of Hospitality to borrow a balance sheet from 1910. “From time-to-time, we have to balance the things of our lives: if trouble, need are included in one pan, responsibility, opportunity, care must be immediately included in the other. How good and exemplary that there are people among us who don’t consider if it’s about help. The Recirquel company with Bence Vági at the forefront was not considered, Tünde Vincze, who helped the refugees from Ukraine with 1HUF million, and Krisztián Kristóf, who changed his life and receives the homeless refugees in his own home, was not considered, ”said the Secretary of State for Culture. Peter Fekete recalled that more than 120 students have been living with us for more than a month now, more than 20 families have come to us who have rested for a few days and then moved on to Western Europe. The Budapest Grand Circus in Budapest is a place whose gates are open to artists and they know it all over the world. “The most important message of the World Circus Day is that circus art is cohesive, no matter who it comes from and where it is, where it helps, supports and catches when someone falls,” said Péter Fekete, who wanted strength and perseverance for everyone. He thanked the helpers for their work and expressed the hope that those forced to leave their homeland would be able to return home as soon as possible.

Subsequently, the Hungarian students handed over to their Ukrainian counterparts the props purchased from the proceeds of BIAK’s all-arts and charity piece entitled Midsummer Night’s Dreamers, so that they could continue their professional studies without interruption. On behalf of all of them, the props were thanked by Momot Svitlana, artistic director and stage director of the Harkiv artist training school. “On behalf of the students, teachers and parents left behind in Ukraine, I would like to say a huge thank you for everything. They welcome us with warmth and humanity, take care of us, provide food, accommodation and equipment for everyday life, as well as provide various programs. But most importantly, our kids can keep practicing and developing their beloved profession, ”said Momot Svitlana, Catch Up! performance director. In the first half of the program celebrating World Circus Day, Kiev and Kharkiv artist educators shone their versatile knowledge. In addition to circus art productions, the art of dance and movement interwoven with pantomime elements. In the second half of the performance, the young talents of BIAK enchanted the audience with their different genre numbers. This year was a special World Circus Day in a historic position.

Overall, thanks to the unparalleled collaboration in Hungarian circus artNational Circus Arts Center, INspirál Circus Center, BIAK, Recirquel Company, Balance Acrobatics & amp; Torna Club, Vincze Tünde Production – Ukrainian artist educators can continue their studies in safety, while continue to develop together with their Hungarian peers.

Herald News: “We Are Growing Up Tonight” @ Central Theater – Budapest 2022

Runtime: 2.20 minutes

Central Theater – Budapest – District, VI., 18. Révai Street

Directed by Kirsty Patrick Ward

After the London premiere, this is the second in the world to see the latest production of the legendary Mischief Company’s play @ Budapest’s Central Theater.

On March, 5, 2022., was domestic premiere of the highly successful comedy by the Hungarian creative team. The irresistibly amusing work of the Mischief Theater was presented to the audience in a replica performance, directed by Kirsty Patrick Ward – We Fail Tonight. The play is in Hungarian language.

Even though the play has been written in 1994 can be traced of to-day’s happenings about kids age 6 to 30, a band of classmates. They quarrel and play, but they rarely test the assumption that their character is formed in childhood. The authors of the piece, Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields, collected seemingly absurd yet real-life situations and conversations. The piece was translated by György Baráthy.

The comedy takes the audience on a journey through the lives of kids, their kindergarten experience within five characters rolling in timeline off to their high school experience, thereafter a few years later following them at high school reunion experiences.

In a nutshell …The comedy takes the audience on a journey through the lives of 5 kids met in the kindergarten in 1994. Friendships are formed and there personalities begins to develop. By the time they reach their teenage years and see them again, their characters have slightly changed. In their teens the hormones and ambitions had pushed their characters in different stage. As they gathered again their adult years are much different when they were children … Or either not really?

The actors brilliant young talents : Moon – Eszter Földes, Spencer – Zoltán Schmied, Katie – Katalin Ágoston, Archie – Tibor Fehér, Simon – András Mészáros, Paul – Mr. Whit, Miss Murry & Chemise Murry – Nóra Trógán.

The play is also special because the actors play their same role as young children, teenagers and adults in their thirties. The fabulous cast is loading up the stage with gags and the audience continuously breaks out with hilarious laughter and big applaud.

Probably many even have their own childhood in mind to sympathize with the characters – for many to recall this-and-that.

The audience celebrated the premiere with applause, praising the work of both the dancers and the director and choreographers.

At the beginning of 2022, the audience will be able to see the performance twice at the Müpa, which will feature contributors such as the Andrea Navratil Liszt Prize winner, the Hanga Junior Prima Prize-winning folk singer and the actor Károly Tóth.

After the highly successful performance “Our Love, Kalotaszeg”, the Danube Art Ensemble wanted to continue the principle of editing limited to the region, in the spirit of which a presentation about the Transylvanian Field was made, for which the Ensemble could prepare in its new, renovated headquarters. The stage image basically shows the field hills. Viewers can see monumental, rollable podiums, the surfaces of which are colored by projection with a modern light painting technology.

In 2022, the Danube Art Ensemble will celebrate its 65th anniversary, with a gala show and a new performance, but their performance entitled Szépséges Mezőség will also fit into the jubilee period.
On February 19, 20, and March 30, 2022, anyone who would have missed out in October will also be able to watch the performance, as it will be on display again at Müpa.

Free Concert @ St. Teresa of Avila Church with Saint Ephraim Male Choir – Budapest

Saturday, February, 19 at 6:30 p.m.
Parish Church of St. Teresa of Avila
District, VI., 2. Pethő Sándor Street- Budapest

After the free concert following the mass.

The contemporary works of Miklós Fehér celebrating its 20th birthday this year. There will be a double premiere with two new works by Miklós Fehér written specifically for the St. Ephrem Men’s Choir. Anastasia Bednarik plays the organ in the first piece, and then Miklós Fehér’s Requiem is performed. From the very beginning, the promotion of Hungarian contemporary classical music and the presentation of new works have been of paramount importance for the vocal formation, which is unique in Hungary. Two new works composed by Miklós György Fehér written specifically for the Saint Ephraim Male Choir will be presented. At the evening Mass, a mass composed for men and organ will be played, in which Anastasia Bednarik will play the organ. After the four-part mass, the audience can also listen to Miklós György Fehér’s Requiem. Miklós György Fehér is a composer, born in 1951 in Budapest. From 1956 to 1971 he studied piano, oboe and composition at the Bartók Conservatory in Miskolc, then in Budapest and later again in Miskolc, and then in 1976 at the Liszt Ferenc College of Music where he received his diploma in composition.

Several contemporary masters – – László Sáry, Barnabás Dukay, Miklós Mohay, Péter Zombola, Péter Tornyai, Boldizsár Csiky – loves the unique sound of the 20-year-old Saint Ephraim Male Choir and so composed works for the ensemble and many others wrote pieces for the ensemble. Among them is Miklós György Fehér, whose works have been sung by the male choir for more than 10 years.

Hungary’s most popular chamber vocal ensemble was established in 2002 by Tamás Bubnó, Hungarian Artist of Merit and Liszt Award laureate. The choir’s name comes from Saint Ephraim the Syrian (306-373), who was a celebrated hymn composer, aptly nicknamed “harp of the Holy Spirit’ by his contemporaries. They consider the establishment of intercultural dialogue to be a kind of peace-building role between the East and the West, but at the same time they put great emphasis on the playing of new compositions of European contemporary music and the nurturing of the Hungarian male tradition (Liszt, Bartók, Kodály).
In 2012, the Saint Ephraim Male Choir received the Pro Cultura Minoritatum Hungariae Award for nurturing Ruthenian ethnic culture, and in 2014 it received the Hungarian Heritage Award. In the same year, the General Assembly of the Capital of Budapest awarded them Budapest Brand Award for their outstanding cultural and artistic activity.

They have performed with renowned musicians such as King’s Singers, Lebanese singer Abeer Nehme, are regular contributors to the productions of the State Folk Ensemble and the Danube Artists’ Ensemble, and are happy to tour other genres with performers such as Anna and the Barbies, Palya Bea and László Dés, Gábor Presser, János Lackfi and János Háy writers, as well as the Óbuda Danubia Orchestra, the Szent István Orchestra and the Budapest Strings.
