In the first programme directed in 1995, as well as in the anthologies that followed it, most of the choreographies were revivals, with mainly classic 'contemporary' pieces of folk dance from the '70s and '80s appearing on the stage. This concept was also a matter of necessity at the time as the trend towards "folklore dance” practically enjoyed a monopoly, making it rare for innovative and trailblazing choreographies to see the light of day. One of the most significant results of the forum, one might claim, is that the share of new "contemporary” choreographies was already increasing perceptibly by this time. In recent years - and this is also true for this year's production - only new pieces have been performed for the audience. (László Diószegi)
