The 25-year-old Central Europe Dance Theatre (CEDT) started to build a new company in 2006, after the end of an earlier era.
in 2011 Csaba Szögi, artistic director of CEDT, invited young, talented dancers mainly from the first class of MU Terminal and asked choreographers like Éva Duda, Krisztián Gergye, József Hámor to create performances for the troupe, which was unique in the Hungarian contemporary dance scene.
These three highly gifted choreographers got the chance of working under professional circumstances and leading the young dancers on their artistic road. This way CEDT has become the place of experiment. CEDT has kept this way of working: repertory company and (re)invited choreographers create 2 or 3 performances each season. Klári Pataky, Gábor Katona, Anna Réti, Zsuzsa Jónás and Melinda Virág have shown their ability on the stage of CEDT.
The first three choreographers (Duda, Gergye, Hámor) became Harangozó Awarded artists and all of them have their own company now. You can see 3 co-productions of their troupes (Eva Duda Dance Company, Company Krisztián Gergye, Gangaray Dance Company) and CEDT; besides these performances two choreographies will be on stage from the repertoire of CEDT during the festival.
