Austrian Contemporary Art Center Reopens With Recirquel’s Solus Amor
On 20th May 2021, Solus Amor, our most recent production receives its international premier as the reopening performance at Austrian Festspielhaus St. Pölten following over 6 months of the venue’s lockdown due the COVID-19 pandemic. Directed and choreographed by Bence Vági, the cirque danse piece fuses modern dance and circus arts to talk about faith and love, about nature and the universe.
Solus Amor premiered last autumn in the Festival Theatre of Müpa Budapest, but we could perform it only a few times. Now, thanks to the decision to reopen theatres, the production returns to the stage.
One of Europe’s leading performing art venues, Austrian Festspielhaus St.Pölten welcomes an audience of 70 thousand with over 70 productions per year, offering a colourful repertoire of different genres ranging from modern dance through international productions to classical music and jazz. The outstanding dance performances they present attract visitors from all around Europe and the world: the cirque danse genre created by Bence Vági, founder and artistic director of the company and Recirquel fits well into this dance repertoire.
Recirquel has already been presented in the online program of the theatre during the lockdown months, when our earlier cirque danse piece, Non Solus was streamed by Festspielhaus with a record-breaking audience of almost 10.000.
