Carmina Burana

Dance performance by Szeged Contemporary Dance Company
Budapest, Müpa Budapest, 24 January 2020 19:00
The iconic performance of the Company remains a resounding success since 15 years now, it is practically unremovable from the programme, there is a massive turnout every time when the piece is performed. This epic show is a visual orgy accompanied by Carl Orff's monumental music.
"We glimpse into the ritualistic lives of a barbarian humanoid community scraping and struggling for survival among the ruins of civilisation. We observe how its members battle their fears and follow their instincts in an attempt to overcome what Fate has thrown at them. Fate is at times benevolent, bringing joy and love, but on occasion also brings sorrow and death. A girl predestined to live a short life can feel happiness for a moment, as the sensation of love banishes all bad thoughts from her mind and makes her believe that life can be different and more beautiful. But Fortune is deceptive and cruel, and has no concern for the beauty of the moment. By living through disappointments, joys and fears alike, the protagonists all learn more and more about themselves, their fate and their opportunities - about their very humanity.” (Tamás Juronics)
