The Miraculous Mandarin
“Three apaches at their den force a young girl to stand by the window and attract passing men into the room, men who will later be brutally robbed by them. There are three seduction scenes. The first man to be lured up is a penniless old man. The second is none better. However, the third man is a rich Chinese. The catch is good, the girl tries to dilute him with her dance and the Mandarin’s zest for the girl is aroused, he falls passionately in love with the prostitute. The apaches grab and rob him, stab him with a sword, smother and strangle him, but without avail: the Mandarin in love remains fixated on the girl. To save the situation, by a womanly instinct, the prostitute agrees to fulfill the Mandarin’s desire: The Mandarin and the prostitute embrace passionately and with his longing fulfilled, he dies in an ecstasy of love.”
Tamás Juranics: Splinters Stage-design and costumes: Zsuzsa Molnár Splinters, bits and pieces and fragments. Fragments of destinies, loves and lives that so often determine the whole, at times our whole life. A night, when the unreal plays a real role, thus enhances the chance for accidental occurrences. I do not wish to speculate on the big questions of life, nor to draw a lesson at the end of the show; my intention is to simply highlight the bits and pieces of human destinies, true and false loves, desires, every-day Mandarins, disappointments, broken hearts – splinters.

Tricks and Tracks
Tricks & Tracks: Pál Frenák was born in Budapest, in 1957, and settled down in Paris in 1983. He established his own Dance Company in 1989, and made his first choreography in France the same year, titled “Ter”. In the following years, mainly staging improvisational pieces, he worked with György Kurtág, Patrick Schneider and several other contemporary composers. His first real hit was the Les Palets / Skate-boards; this show, just as all his other works, could be seen by the Hungarian audience as well, as part of the Budapest Autumn Festivals, or as individual performances. Since 1998 Frenák has been working more and more in Hungary, the majority of dancers of his Company are Hungarian. The premiere of his last three shows (Out of the Cage, Tricks & Tracks and his latest, the Festen/Feast ) were held in Budapest, in the House of Contemporary Arts, the “Trafó”.
The Kremlin Ballet
The Company was founded by the well-known choreographer, Andrei Petrov, in 1990. They reside in the Kremlin Palace that is located on the territory of the Kremlin in Moscow. The Company defines its artistic mission as one that is based on masterpieces of the classical legacy and their creative further development. Their repertoire comprises the oeuvres of the outstanding old masters (M. Petipa, A. Gorski, L. Ivanov) as well as recent ballets of J. Grigorovich, V. Vasziljev, A. Petrov. The pieces are directed by those leading stage artists, who otherwise are considered as trend-setters of the new expression formulas of the present day theater: Stanislav Benediktov and Olga Polyanskaya, Marina Sokolova and Boris Messerer, Viktor and Rafael Volski, Vladimir Arefev and Boris Krasnov.

In 1997 they won the Award Nureyev; a year later they were granted the Italian „Taranto Award for Best Entertainment” and the Spanish „Award for the Most Valuable Professional of the Dance”.
