The Hungarian National Ballet, the only classical ballet company in Hungary is ready to go again with their newest modern ballet show that features spectacular classical technique and acrobatic elements.
The first ballet show of the 2021/22 season, a triple bill entitled Fresh Impulses including Cacti by Alexander Ekman, Whirling by András Lukács, and a new piece in the company repertoire: Sad Case by Paul Lightfoot and Sol León premieres on 17 September 2021 at the Eiffel Art Studios.
In September 2020, when Hungarian theatres were open for a brief period between lockdowns, the Hungarian National Ballet staged Cacti by Alexander Ekman which examines modern dance itself: the work passionately, and often raucously, picks apart the mannerisms of dance.
Featuring a string quartet from the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra, the piece presents a play of rhythms between dancers and musicians.
