Felfoldi Music released the Real Breaxit Ballet
What do Europeans think about Brexit? Hungarian Businessman and film/music producer Joseph Felfoldi has expressed some of the mixed feelings in a fusion of song and choreography titled ''Brexit Ballet''.
A Hungarian music composition which was inspired by a contemporary political situation.
The song is inspired by the English ballad tradition, with the lyrics identifying themes that Europeans associate with Britain: a misty island, at once nearby and distant; a proud seafaring nation with a long history; and a complex destiny intertwined with that of Europe itself.
Out of respect, Joseph Felfoldi sings the lyrics in English, himself.
The choreography is arranged by Zsuzsa Laczó of the Csokonai Theatre in Debrecen, with dancer Kitti Gall playing Britannia on a bare stage. The narrative evokes a combination of admiration, beauty, trauma, and sorrow.
