For old times sake

This production was created for the 2003 American-Canadian Ifjú Szivek tour. The performance consists of two parts, comprising the dance traditions of two large areas, Felvidék (the southern part of Slovakia) and Transylvania. This is a spectacular and entertaining show without actual show elements, which fascinates the audience worldwide with the natural, visceral strength and virtuosity which is so characteristic of the traditional dance and music culture of the Carpathian Basin. Having returned from overseas, the company toured Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Switzerland with this production too.
