Back in December, during the last week before the big year celebrations at Raudondvaris Manor an international team of 15 performers from Latvia and Lithuania was working on the program presenting historical dances and costumes – A Night in the Renaissance.
The historical dance group Ballare, whose repertoire includes dances from various European countries from the Middle Ages to the 17th century, represented Latvia. The original works of the old choreographers were used to prepare authentic dances. Ballare is led by certified ballerina and professional choreographer Guna Ezermale.
The Lithuanian team consists of Viduramžiai LT dancers with the leader Karolis Jankauskas. Artists perform dances typical for 14th-15th centuries, revealing the passions of noble, poverty of beggars, the ecstasy of pilgrims, and the life of peasants, the happiness of lovers and pain of the outcasts. Every dance shows separate medieval life miniature. The dances were recreated by the best masters of ancient dances in Europe.
Surrounded by the sounds of early music, the enchanting story conveyed by the dances and amazing costumes will be presented to the audience of both groups on 13 February at 18:00 in Bauska Castle. During the concert, the audience will enjoy the dances and get acquainted with the history of the costumes worn by the dancers.
Audience is required to wear face masks/respirators during the concert.
The event is organized by the project Historic Road: Raudondvaris-Bauska (LLI-498), which seeks to attract more tourists to Kaunas district and Bauska regions during the cold season by creating new artistic and cultural activities.
