Programmes for February

2024. January 26.

This month we will present our new dance theatre performance ECCE HOMO in Sfântu Gheorghe and Târgu Secuiesc, Bekecs Dance Theatre will bring a guest performance, and on the 28th of February we will commemorate Petőfi with our folklore show "We will live free".

Tamás Farkas, choreographer from Békéscsaba and Ernő Tapasztó, actor-director from Arad, will present a unique interpretation of ten emblematic paintings by Mihály Munkácsy in the performance ECCE HOMO. The production will be presented on the occasion of the Munkácsy commemorative year, as the Hungarian painter was born 180 years ago, on 20 February 1844 in Munkács (Transcarpathia, Ukraine). Through Munkácsy's paintings, the director of the performance aims to convey contemporary ideas of the 21st century, such as child labour, the exploitation of children, human frailty, love, mockery, desire, the characteristics of human nature, the peculiarities of human nature, burdened with original sin. 

The audience in Sfântu Gheorghe can see the performance on 3, 11 and 12 February, while in Târgu Secuiesc on 13 and 14 February.

More about the performance: ECCE HOMO

The youngest professional dance ensemble in Transylvania, the Bekecs Dance Theatre, dazzles audiences with its folk dance and dance theatre productions, as well as occasional prose-based performances. "Thrown between two worlds, to which one should I give my right hand, I don't know" - this is the Madách quote chosen by the creators as the motto of the performance "Who did you love, Madách?", which will be presented on 22 February at the Háromszék Dance Studio. The production deals with an eternal story, the opposition between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law, the enmity and the helpless pain of the man who loves both of them, who hesitates between them. This is how Imre Madách, an iconic figure of Hungarian literature, lived and created. The performance was directed by Csaba Györfi.

At the end of the month we will perform again the folklore show "We will live free" directed by László Ivácson, which presents the relationship of Sándor Petőfi with the people of Szeklerland, the changes in the mood of the years 1848-1949, the enthusiasm and compassion that arose in the wake of current events.
