New performance in memory of Petőfi

2023. April 5.

This year we celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Sándor Petőfi. On the occasion of the bicentenary, our dance ensemble will pay tribute to the poet and his work with a new performance.

On the 13th and 14th of April, the folklore show "We will live free" will be presented at the Háromszék Dance Studio, directed by László Ivácson.

The production is based on Sándor Petőfi's Transylvanian roots. The performance presents the relationship of the poet, who was born in the lowland landscape, with the people of Szeklerland, the variations in the mood of the years 1848-1949, the enthusiasm and compassion that arose in the wake of current events. Petőfi proclaimed his republican principles everywhere and was steadfast in stoking the fires of revolution. His nationalist poems are excellent pieces of Hungarian patriotic lyric poetry, sending the message that loving your homeland idly is not enough, it is necessary to recreate it by fighting for freedom.
