International Guest Performances

Spellbound Contemporary Ballet (IT)

In 2021 we had the honour of presenting Spellbound Contemporary Ballet in a very special setting where the audience had the chance to experience the unique dancers and artistic work up close (within corona-safety distance, of course).

The performances were excerpts of Spellbound’s work.

Hodworks (HU)

We had the honour to present Hodworks – the Budapest-based international company founded by choreographer Adrienn Hód in 2007. Hodworks regroups sensible, proactive and forward-thinking creators having their own creative and concentrated working methods.

The performances were excerpts of the company’s work “Conditions of being a Mortal”
