“FESTA CORTESE is the early dance and music group in Lithuania. It propagates the early European dances and culture.
The group‘s repertoire consists of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque dances, music and poetry. Early dances are court dances that need special knowledge to perform them. We can be thankful to some dance masters as Domenico da Piacenso in 15th century and Fabritio Caroso, Antonio Negri in 16th century and of course baroque dance notation according to Raoul Auger Feuillet which left us a great possibility to recreate early dances.
To create our performances we read various treatises from different centuries and especially literature of famous English and French authors of 16th and 17th centuries and we try to get deeper to understand life in the early society.
