Attila Egerházi: About Kafka - South Bohemian Ballet

This one-act dance performance depicts Kafka’s unique view of the world: his relations with society, his opinion of power and the bureaucratic system. The intention of the production is not to render the stories of Kafka’s well-known or less known literary works.


Hungarian National Gallery

RIPPL-RÓNAI AND MAILLOL - The Story of a Friendship

József Rippl-Rónai had at least as great an impact on modern Hungarian art as Aristide Maillol had on modern European sculpture. The friendship between these two influential artists, and the artistic documents of their relationship, are the focus of an exhibition.


Budapest Music Center

Arve Henriksen and the Trio Mediæval

The cooperation between Norwegian jazz trumpeter Arve Henriksen and the Trio Mediæval, a vocal ensemble specializing in medieval music, is in many ways similar to Jan Garbarek’s project with the Hilliard Ensemble, from two decades earlier. And not only with regard to the principle - that of approaching centuries-old melodies from the angle of contemporary jazz -, but also as far as quality is concerned.


Trafó - House of Contemporary Arts

Wayne McGregor - Random Dance: Atomos

Particles of movement, film, sound and light cohere into tense emotions. The latest piece of the super-modern choreographer features ten astonishing dancers. The focus is again on Wayne McGregor’s passion for the human body, and the desire to create motion of a visceral, strong physicality.

In 2010 the American Jazz Journalists Association (JJA) voted him Musician of the Year, and in the same year his triple album Historicity received a Grammy nomination.
