TITLE: ‘Podravina’

DESCRIPTION: Podravina translates to, ‘near the Drava River’ and is a province of Croatia which rests between the Hungarian plains and the mountain range of Bilogora. Because of its proximity to the border with Hungary and history of domination by the Austro-Hungarian Empire, there is a predominant Hungarian influence in the region’s folk traditions. The choreography is pervaded with extraordinary beautiful old time songs and dances. 

Podravinu znaju i oni koji možda nikad za nju nisu ni ćuli. U mnogim galerijama i privatnim kolekcijama širom svijeta vise uokvireni kvadrati krajolika – s ravnicom teškom od sjete, s kuštravim vrbama nadnesenim nad ledeno zrcalo rijeke, sa seoskim hižama prekrivenim slamom… zahvaljujući čuvenim podravskim naivcima ovakva je podravina postala dio velikog svijeta… A Domagoj- Senior, će vas danas provesti pjesmom i plesom tom nekadašnjom podravinom.
