Ancient Hungarian life and colorful history come to life, but instead of wars that can be learnt from history books, social gatherings and ancient celebrations are presented. The well of Hungarian past sudely opens up: scenes of urban dance and music from the Middle Ages, splendid military dances of border fortress knights, the atmosphere of nobel ballrooms, wild feasts at the campfires of 18th century insurrectionist armies - these all come alive on stage.
'Dancing Hungarians' is not only about the year of the Hungarian Millennium (2000), and not only for people who are already somewhat familiar with Hungarian history. Dance appears as chronicler of bygone times, welcoming all viewers, foreigners and natives alike. History becomes tangible through folklore.
