The hazy stories of our dreams and our desires in the alertness of a daily life create a world of constant balancing between these two different states of being. In Doze Jiří Pokorny (from NDT) shows a world that balances on the edge of sleep. We are not completely immersed in the depths of our sleep, and at the same time situated in some kind of vacuumed space full of surprises. As we drift, we are dozing and yet close to rousing.
Budapest Dance Theatre, one of the leading Hungarian contemporary dance companies, was founded by Bela Földi in 1991.
Since its establishment over the past 27 years the company has been acting in various festivals Europe-wide, for example in Italy, France, Russia, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, England, Germany, Austria and Poland. In the recent years we have been also to the overseas, in Réunion island and Mexico. We are constantly seeking for newer audiences world-wide.
You might be interested in the wide repertoire of Budapest Dance Theatre, which contains 10 different styles of pieces and 5 shows for children.
The company cooperated with famous choreographers such as Jiri Pokorny (NDT), Gustavo Ramirez (NDT), Fernando Troya (NDT), Joseph Tmim (Batsheva Dance Company).
