International Folklore Festival in Veszprém, 2010
Our project aims to create a biennial international meeting and cultural exchange possibility for (amateur) folk-dance ensembles (preferably with own accompanying instrumental group), with a special thematic focus for each festival (such as dances of different professions; from childhood to youth; neighbours’ dances – cross-cultural influences; authentic dances parallel to choreographies; love and wedding; “Four seasons” – special dances on special days; “Pastime with good company” – dances of social occasions, balls; “Story-telling” by dance, etc.)
The number of invitees: 8 groups.
The event would be held in August, (more specific dates are still to be defined), starting with arrival on Thursday, leaving on Monday.
Specialty: a group teaches another group one national dance of their own and vice versa, and the results are performed together on the gala-evening. (It means 8 dances, performed by 4 “united groups”. These are to be performed at the end of the gala-evening, after the presentation of the individual choreographies of 15-20 min.
