After the last jubilee season’s ceremony series this 31st season’s repertoire is just as various as the previous has been, which we opened with the premiere of Orpheus and Eurydice. The literature’s most beautiful and saddest story told by our Italian choreographer, Enrico Morelli’s set of motions. This is Morelli’s third time choreographing a piece for our company. Similarly to the earlier ones – Moderato cantabile, Wedding – this new performance also met with success.
„We can undoubtedly state that with this premier contemporary dance’s genre completes it’s a mission too. Szeged Contemporary Dance Company is an outstanding representative of the genre in Hungary with its’s history of three decades and plenty of fans who have become the devotees of dance and contemporary arts. Their influence is national and they are also known internationally. The company’s point is not only mass entertainment but providing a contemporary alternative in understanding artworks.They even reach and affect areas where stone-theatres’ „traditionally entertaining” performances define theatrical art. Enrico Morelli’s new piece’s concept and level integrally matches the repertoire of performances mostly choreographed by Tamás Juronics Artistic Director. These contemporary pieces do not radically repudiate traditional ballet’s aesthetics but their popular visual and content symbolism leads the audience to the underworld’ scene once in a while – being understandable but showing the dark side of love and life, meaningful but entertaining at the same time.”
