A Székely gate is a symbol of ancient power, faith, hope, belonging to God, a channel of communication between heaven and earth. Its three posts represent the unity of body, soul and spirit, and its carvings are symbols that render protection, grace and blessing.
The Duna Art Ensemble drew inspiration for its production from this wonderful, richly meaningful construction. The creators want this show to open a passage between two spheres, the sacred and the secular. The viewer is transported through space and time to the past of the Székelys, reviving their long-forgotten dances, recalling their origin and evoking major events in their history. The spiritual message of a Székely gate is ‘Blessings to you who enter, peace to you who leave.'

The premiere was presented by Müpa Budapest as a joint event with the Duna Art Ensemble as part of the Bartók Spring.
