-new circus+ dance-
This choreography by Kata Juhasz played with live music, furthermore involving musicians for doing challenging stunts, was conceived for the youngest audiences from the age of 4 to 8.
Kathie, a small girl while gazing to the sky receives visitors emerging from the clouds. These acrobats, dancers and musicians guide her through the 4 seasons by playing, dancing sometimes transforming into surprising fabled characters. The plot is based on the well-known tome of poems for children Bóbita by excellent hungarian poet Sándor Weöres, especially the verse below:
Noonday clouds (Déli felhők)
On the hill where the foxes dig
their dens and the rabbits run,
our Kathie gazes up to the clouds
in the glaring summer sun.
A blade of grass in her lips,
her drowsy chin on her hands…
She marvels at the itinerant folks
of the sky in their shifting bands.
King Mog swims at the front,
he follows his two-pronged nose,
above him his crown, like a birthday cake,
and it hovers as he goes.
And in his wake runs the fool,
he broadly laughs in the sky,
and into the heavens from his hump
a serpent rises high.
And bald, in a broken barrow,
a kite, plucked clean and bare,
and there is Berryblood, King Mog’s daughter,
she’s tearing out her hair.
Behind them trundles a fancy house
on many wheels, and inside
the princess of the circus
all dressed up for the ride.
She’d gladly give up her hundred frocks
and jewels just to run around
for only a single week
down here… on the sunny ground.
