The Budapest Dance Theatre will give a unique performance on 25th April. The dance performance called My Daughter, Anne Frank attempts to show the personality of this tragic-fate girl. Moreover, the dance show is mixing the elements of the dance and literature –the kulturpart.hu announced.
“I picture us as 8 little pieces of the blue sky which are surrounded by black, gloomy storm-clouds. And this kind of bluish sky where we live is still safe. However, the storm-clouds of the forthcoming dangers are coming closer and closer to hunt us down. (…) We are all look down where people fight each other. Then we are look up to the sky where peace and beauty flows from. But neither up nor down can we go because our way is blocked by a big and dark colossus (…)” –a little girl writes in her diary, meanwhile the stormy clouds of the Second World War ripple across her head.
The diary of this young girl reports the lives of the eight hiding children daily, but mostly gives an insight into her own life.
The performance of the Budapest Dance Theatre attempts to show the personality of this special and life-loving child, mixing the literature and the dance elements in it. We can hear, through her eyes and thoughts, the sounds of the camouflage and the beats of life. Moreover, the tension – especially the inside-tension of the girl – is continuously presented on the stage, thus the duality of her fear and courage appears as well.
The My Daughter, Anne Frank performance will be displayed in the National Dance Theatre on 25th April, in the evening. Its choreography was made by Béla Földi and the dramaturgy was lead by Anna Vécsei. Interestingly, László Gálffi plays Otto Frank, the father of Anne Frank. László Gálffy, a Hungarian actor was awarded by the Kossuth-Prize and Jászai Mari-Prize as well. The show is a co-production of the Budapest Dance Theatre and The National Dance Theatre.
