Where Will This Train Take Us
The Hungarian National Assembly (Hungarian Parliament) has marked 2020 as the Year of National Unity. In the spirit of this “national togetherness” the Canadian Hungarian folk dance groups from coast to coast, joined forces and formed the Togetherness Dance Ensemble. The result is an hour-long dance performance that tells the history of the Hungarian nation from the 1848 Revolution and Freedom Fight to present days through an art composition involving dance, music, and poetry. It presents the disintegration of Great Hungary, the history of migration, resettlement, and life of the Hungarians, who emigrated to North America after the 1956 Revolution and Freedom Fight. What makes this performance special is that most dancers of the ensemble were born in Canada and have learnt the art of the beautiful traditional Hungarian folk dance here. The music is performed by well-known Gyanta band . Please join us for the events of this unique performance!
