Experience the essence of Hungary
A folk dance and music performance by world famous ensemble from Hungary, the Csillagszemuek (Starry Eyed) is being organised by the Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre (HICC) in cooperation with the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) in the Capital. This first international folk dance and music festival will be staged on 13 October at Kamani Auditorium.

The Csillagszemuek (Starry-Eyed) Dance ensemble will be on their second tour to India and will be travelling and performing at various other cities in India like - Jaipur, Meerut, Saharanpur, Roorkee, and Dehradun. The group is engaged in dance education through various workshops, in which children learn their native folk dances. Sándor Timár, choreographer and his wife Böske Tjmár established the dance ensemble in 1993, which is considered to be unique in Hungary and Europe, and includes about 450 children. The Timár-method is used to train children and is well recognised in the world of folk dance.

The essence of this method is to introduce children and the young generation to the existing folk dance and music traditions of Hungary. This is done not only through stage or as a priceless value of Hungarian culture but, as a real experience to be built into the dancers’ lives.

The 17-member Csillagszemuek is one of the world’s most prestigious Hungarian folk dance and music ensembles. The group regularly performs at the Hungarian dance performers’ star-gala in the opera house, and takes part in the excellent dance-art happenings and festivals.

The Csillagszemuek represent Hungary all over the world and are called the Dance Ambassadors
of Hungary.
