Dance Etudes for SĽUK

Premiéra: 11.12.2010

A dynamic dance show representing new modern forms of interpretation of Slovak traditional dance, music and costumes.

In the dance staging of CHOREA SLOVACA, SĽUK gives an opportunity to the younger generation of Slovak artists. Choreographers who are professionally engaged in folk dance, as well as representatives of other dance styles, who have a close relationship with the dancing tradition of Slovakia, were inspired by fragments of original folk dances which they then put together in an original way, as the subtitle suggests, “dance etudes”. The authors of the musical arrangements are playing with the specifics of authentic musical artworks, pushing them into new forms and combining them in new musical contexts. Through the author’s view, very different program pieces are sensitively interconnected by the director, who aims to highlight details and capture special moments. Thanks to the cooperation of other creative elements such as scenery and costumes, this music and dance program thematically and visually closes into compact and unconventional theatre work.
