Honved Ready To End Its Absence From American Audience
Published September 27, 2006

Honved, a Hungarian folk troupe and cultural institution since 1982, is ready and eager to perform in the U.S. for their first time.

Their debut performance is scheduled for Saturday, September 30, as part of the New York Gypsy Festival taking place from September 24th through October 8th. Honved will perform at New York University's Skirball Center for Performing Arts at 8pm.

Under the direction of the founder, the award-winning Ferenc Novak, fourteen dancers are joined for a blend of styles by a folk trio to perform traditional songs from the Carpathian Basin, and the Lindri Trio for original songs. 

The Hungarian Ministry of Defense in 1948 originally conceived Honved - which means "defender of the homeland" - as a cultural representation for the armed forces. The Budapest-based company finds its modern form through Novak, the successful organizer of the company heralded for its diversity and creativity.

The event is sponsored by the World Music Institute and Mehanata Meyhane, New York's "House of Gypsy."

Tickets, available at www.nygypsyfest.com, are $32 to the general public and are discounted for students.

Honved will be giving a second performance on October 4th at 8 p.m. at the New York City Center's Fall for Dance Festival.  For additional information and tickets, please visit www.nycitycenter.org.
