Beatrix Simkó & Zoltán Grecsó: #Orpheus#Eurydice

Performance schedule

Thu 15.9. at 19

Description of the performance

Zoltán Grecsó’s and Beatrix Simkó’s duo puts Orpheus’ and Eurydice’s mythos in today’s conditions, giving a special interpretation to this so many times presented love story. Now, Eurydice will be expelled to the hell of our present world. Of course, she will be followed by her lover, but this world is and remains unfamiliar to Orpheus, and suddenly he gets helpless and incapable – he has no vigor to confront the ethos of the 21st century.

“This incredible piece of work is worth it to show and to be proud all over the world!” – Andrea Ladányi – dancer, choreographer

Beatrix Simkó and Zoltán Grecsó have been performing their contemporary dance duet #Orpheus#Eurydice at Vígszínház Budapest since 2016. The piece was awarded with the grand prize at Festival of Dance 2018 in Hungary. In 2019 it was part of the Kuopio Dance Festival program.
