Sixteen orchestral suite dances by New York based Slovak composer and musician Peter Breiner based on Slovak folk songs and similar suites by other composers – Bartok, Dvorak, Brahms, Beethoven, Kodály and Borodin and others. This metamorphosis of the many layers in Breiner’s musical language contains elements of jazz, folk and improvisation. This music inspired by sixteen folk songs – – mainly from Eastern Slovakia – is full of colourful contrasts, energy, humour and unusual instrumentation.

This dramatised version of the suite is choreographed and directed by a young Slovak choreographer who has already successfully established herself in Europe – Natalie Horečna. Her contemporary choreography – influenced by impulses from the world – enriches Slovak dance with a new, modern dimension of dance.

Running time: 2 hrs mins with one interval
