Jewish Art Days Festival
May 28, 2016 – June 14, 2016
The Jewish Art Days Festival will be held for the first time this spring, in Budapest. The new event series is intent on introducing the colorful Jewish culture to all interested audiences through sophisticated artistic performances at varied venues. In addition to the well-known cultural and concert venues and stage and movie theaters, such as the Franz Liszt Academy of Music, the Millenáris Theater, the Urania National Film Theater, the Átrium Movie Theater, the A38 Ship, and the BMC, unique cultural, gastronomic and entertainment events are offered to the visitors in less formallocations of Erzsébet-város as well, (Elisabeth City district within Budapest) including Mazel Tov, Libling, Fogas, etc..
Besides the capital several cities of the countryside joined the Jewish Art Days Festival too, e.g. Debrecen, Sopron, Veszprém.
The first Jewish Art Days Festival is held between May 28, 2016 and June 14, 2016. By the month of May the days grow longer and warmer, and we instinctively become more open to anything new, accepting all that elates us. This is the spirit in which we organize this exceptionally special spring event.
The Jewish Art Days Festival is a multicultural space open to all, where the different forms of art not only create a cross-section, but by centering around Jewish culture the different art forms blend into one. The emphasis of the event series is on theater, classical and pop music, literature, film and dance, and all these genres show diversity, while the artists bring forth openness and creativity to the performances. Quality is guaranteed by the list of invited artists, including the Israeli Beer-Sheva Theater ensemble, who bring their play called Slichot with guests to Budapest, and several popular and well-known artists, like Tony Lakatos, Félix Lajkó, the Amsterdam Klezmer Band celebrating their 20th anniversary, the Budapest Bar, László Fekete chief cantor of the Dohány Street Synagogue, Péter Esterházy, János Kulka, Eszter Horgas, László Dés, the thirty year-old 100-member Gypsy Orchestra and many others.
