Recirquel will tour in France between November 2021 and March 2022, writes Hello Magyar. The tour that will have 47 performances in 40 locations will reach the audiences thanks to the Association Des Scénes Nationales, which invited Recirquel. The Hungarian troupe will bring “My Land” to the audience. The successful performance debuted in 2018 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was invited back to the festival in 2019 as well. Also in 2019, the breathtaking performance amazed viewers at the Festival OFF d’Avignon, one of the most important cultural festivals in France.
The cirque danse production directed by Bence Vági can be seen by tens of thousands of viewers. “My Land” is one of Recirquel’s most successful performances. The performance was brought to audiences in many countries. At the Edinburgh Fringe, critiques agreed that “My Land” was the best performance among the 4,000 programs. Recirquel has 250 performances a year, out of which 150 are presented to audiences abroad.
The performance features seven world-class Ukrainian artists. It combines contemporary dance with theatre art and circus art. The performance focuses on the roots of humanity and the eternal connection between humans and the motherland. This is presented in a space filled with illusions, the website of the production writes.
The performance includes various elements. Authentic Tatar and Moldavian music is also featured in the performance.
The tour in France is a very important one for the troupe. “This is the longest and most-played tour in Recirquel’s history, requiring many months of organisation and serious logistics,” said Bence Vági. He also added that it is a big deal that the French audience can see a Hungarian cultural production in various parts of the country on their tour that will last for months.
The artists and the staff will travel 100 hours. They will embark on a 21,000-kilometre-long trip.
