Hungarian Heritage: Roots to Revival

Introduction:
Hungary is a small country in Central Europe, roughly the size of Indiana. Its population is approximately 10 million, but another 2.5 million Hungarians reside within the seven countries that surround its borders (Austria, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, and Slovenia) and another 2 million Hungarians live in other parts of the world. These people speak Hungarian - known as Magyar (which is also the word that refers to a person of Hungarian ancestry). The Magyars' unique language helped them survive as a cohesive ethnic group and also to develop a distinctive identity and culture.

Throughout its thousand years of history, Hungary has been a multiethnic country, drawing and incorporating new peoples and traditions. The territory has been an area of contact in Europe's geographic center, welcoming influences from all directions. The resulting culture expresses itself in a rich and diverse heritage of music, dance, costume, arts and crafts, gastronomy, speech, and even the conventions of naming (Hungarians place the family name before the given name).

In the 1970s, popular interest in folk music and dance traditions was revived by the so-called táncház (dance house) movement. This urban grassroots movement reinvented the institution of the village dance in urban settings. Young people were searching for traditions that were "true" and "authentic," and their interest focused on learning dances that were varied, improvisational, and performed to live musical accompaniment. They strove to understand the original techniques, performing styles, and contexts of the dance and the accompanying vocal and instrumental music. Their teachers were remarkable personalities in rural areas of Hungary and neighboring countries who had been able to preserve these traditions in spite of twentieth-century modernization.

A similar motivation to preserve traditional Hungarian handicrafts has provided a boost to a flourishing crafts revival. The táncház and the crafts revival provided refreshing alternatives to the mandated, ideologically controlled Socialist youth movement and forms of entertainment of the time. Their practices became not only an act of protest, but also a new channel for the expression of collective memory and identity.

Thanks to the transmission of traditional knowledge from these "last preservers" to the succeeding generations, 2013 saw a rich repertoire and high standard of dance, musical, and crafts knowledge throughout the country. What had started as an amateur movement thus revolutionized the methods and concepts of choreographed stage performances, thereby creating new sensibilities and possibilities for both contemporary and traditional dance. Recent experiments in music, design, and fashion are reshaping the boundaries and meanings of tradition.

The Hungarian Heritage: Roots to Revival program at the Festival demonstrated not only the diversity of these contemporary traditions, but also the worldwide significance of the Hungarian folk revival movement. Featuring highly skilled masters and apprentices from rural areas, as well as musicians, dancers, and artisans from more urban settings, the program highlighted the vitality of this culture, as well as the strength it derives from the reinterpretation of traditions.

James Deutsch and Ágnes Fülemile were Program Curators and Zsuzsanna Cselényi was Program Coordinator. The Curatorial Advisory Board included: Miklós Cseri and Eszter Csonka-Takács, Hungarian Open Air Museum; László Diószegi, György Martin Folk Dance Association; Gabriella Igyártó, Festival of Folk Arts and Crafts; László Kelemen, House of Traditions; and János Tari, National Museum of Ethnography.

The program was produced by the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage in partnership with the Balassi Institute, Budapest. Major support was provided by the Hungary Initiative Foundation and National Cultural Endowment of Hungary. Additional support was provided by the Hungarian American Coalition, American Hungarian Federation, Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Embassy of Hungary in Washington, D.C., Center for Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Ferenc Liszt University of Music, Hungarian National Tourist Office, William Penn Association, Hungarian American Cultural Association, City Council of Karcag, Hungarian Communion of Friends, and Tisza Ensemble Washington.
