CARITAS GEORGIA

CARITAS GEORGIA

Dancing as a tool for hapiness. The leader of the group, Tamar Chaduneli, says that "the journey to Poland is their chance to change their lives".

Each Georgian child, from the youngest years learns traditional dance and singing. Not many dance steps in the world are so dynamic as the Georgian men’s gestures, and not often can you meet choreography which is so full of grace as the Georgian ladies’ moves, which seem to gently lift the dancers in the air. The “Caritas Georgia”  Foundation tries to create a friendly environment for good development of the children. It organises classes, which allow to broaden their horizons by many educational actions – its children, participating in this year’s Brave Kids, chose dance from the whole set of classes available at the Caritas centre. The children and the group’s leader, Tamar Chaduneli, have worked on a programme, which aims at presenting various faces of their homeland. One of the things the audience will be able to see is Davlur-kartuli – romantic dance of a coupe of lovers, which illustrates the charm of the woman and the dignity of the man, who shows tenderness and great respect to his chosen one. Another dance, from the Achara region, stands out due to its playful spirit and colourful costumes, picturing an amusing context of a flirt. A mountain dance, Mtiuluri is the best illustration of the Georgian spirit: it joins many characteristics, such as courage, endurance, arrogance and respect towards the world and its beauty. The specificity of costumes, dance and singing causes that once you see Georgia – even the one enchanted in these performing children – you will remember it forever.
