The contemporary ballet "Flights" made in the festival co-production of the MN Dance Company from Nova Gorica and the Tourism Organization of the Municipality of Budva was premiered the night before last on the stage between the churches in the Old Town in Budva, as part of the Adriatic Dance Festival, and the dance ensemble was accompanied with thunderous applause and cheers.

Michal Rynia i Nastja Bremec Rynia, choreographers of the play "Flight", based on the motifs of the book of the same name Olga Tokarchuk, Polish Nobel laureates, talked about how challenging it was to prepare this performance, especially considering that most of the time they dance with neon lights in their hands. While researching a book that talks about migration and borders and how to overcome them, they treated the topic in an abstract way and pointed out that the basic idea and message of the piece "Flights" is openness to everything new and overcoming one's own thoughts in order to move one's own borders and reach new ones. height. When they talked about the performance in Budva and the Adriatic Dance Festival, they emphasized, first of all, the unreal atmosphere of the old town and the international audience, whose reactions to their performance were fantastic. They added how important it is that the Festival is growing, since they were in Budva last year as well, and that foreign dance ensembles perform as part of the program, so the Budva audience can enjoy different performances from different parts of the world.
