The Band

„In the late ’70s until the ’90s I had the privilage to experience several „rural wedding ceremonies” in the „Mezőség” ethnographic region. The virtuosity of the „Magyarpalatkai” band impressed me deeply as well as the energy and swing of the wedding guests. Those people knew how to party, to dance without beeing exhausted for a second. This vivid tradition unfortunately seems to fade away in our contemporary society” – emphasizes Könczei Árpád, director-coreographer. The plot itself is simple, but the characters and the subplots are very carefully constructed, like a wedding fresco with its microscopical details.
One of the most provocative, exuberant folkdance-theatre shows, The Band reveals the freshness and relevance of folklor through the form of theater offering a peculiar easthetic experience.
