CITY: Tordas

The Teremtőkert Association hosts táncház (‘dance-house’) events in Tordas on dedicated Saturdays each month. The aim of the programme series is to activate folk musicians, folk dancers, craftsmen and women as well as artists living in Tordas – a village of 2000 people, 30 km from Budapest –, for the purpose of transferring the complex, traditional Hungarian folk culture in a rural environment, playing authentic Hungarian folk music and experiencing the community building power of dance.  In addition to the permanent band whose members are all locals, guest musicians, dancers and performers enrich the programme occasionally. From time to time, the folk music students of the local art school also play together with the musicians.
