"I created Bolero in 2012 for the Wiener Staatsballett, approaching Ravel's marvellous music with trepidation, because I didn't want to be an imitator, nor did I want to spice up the 'story' with the usual thread of male-female relationships, passion and sensuality. My Bolero is a piece without a plot for ten female and ten male dancers all wearing the same costumes, enormous black skirts, who attempt through dance to convey a dark and monumental ball scene which is cold in tone.” (...András Lukács)
To the works of Zoltán Kodály - première
A sharp white light slashes across the space, illuminating a man. All is silent. Then in filters the sounds of boots and thighs being slapped in unison. The rhythm speeds up, growing more and more intense. The silence returns. The man collapses. In the background, people appear. The women put on black headscarves, and one of them emerges from the crowd...
László Velekei first took on the works of Zoltán Kodály in 2013. This effort yielded the Ballet Company of Győr's highly successful piece Kodály, which he has since reconceived to create his choreography Romance, a multifaceted look at Kodály's work that pays tribute to the world-famous Hungarian composer, musicologist and researcher of folk music.
The production is being presented on the occasion of the 135th anniversary of the birth of Zoltán Kodály.
