A long-held dream of the artists of the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble was realised when they encountered the fresh, dynamic music of Nikola Parov, a popular but unusual ethnic blend incorporating ancient motifs while utilising saxophone, drums and brass instruments. The music is combined here on stage with the most lively and energetic movements of Hungarian folk dance, creating a veritable whirlwind of dance. The collaboration takes the essence of the region's musical and dance traditions as a basis to produce a creative vision of dance theatre in the spirit of the 21st century, using the distinctive tools of art to visualise the cult of the Sun and the part it plays in our lives, exploring the relationship between the Sun's celestial journey and the progress and turning points of human existence.
