This summer (2018) they shot a documentary film in the Transylvanian village of Szék/Sic in Romania’s Cluj County. The idea of this project was to find people – traditional dancer informants – that choreographer Novák Ferenc “Tata” had begun filming in 1958, and that later (1968) Korniss Péter began photographing. Novák and Korniss’ early trips to Szék provided the inspiration for the dance house movement that began in Budapest in 1972. The documentary film is directed by Novák’s son, Novák Péter, and sponsored by the Fölszállott a Páva Foundation. Report by P. Vas János.
