CAFe Budapest showcases contemporary arts in October



The 25th CAFe Budapest contemporary arts festival, one of Central Europeʼs biggest art events lasting over two weeks, kicks off  tomorrow, October 7, according to a press release.

The event features Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, French film music composer Yann Tiersen, Japanese jazz pianist Hiromi and electronic music artist Squarepusher, to name just a few acts from the 16 days of programs.

Theater premiers include Béla Bartókʼs one-act opera Bluebeardʼs Castle and ballet The Miraculous Mandarin with new choreography, as well as performances by the Polish Cloud Theater and a Hungarian dance production in remembrance of the 1956 revolution by Krisztián Gergye.

The Budapest Ritmo world music festival ties in with CAFe Budapest events, building on the success of WOMEX, the international world music event hosted by Hungary last year. Featuring artists from all corners of the globe, Budapest Ritmo will take place at the Palace of Arts (Müpa) over four days during the festival. Other mini-festivals will also be organized in various art genres during the CAFe Budapest program.
