On this occasion the organisers of the Viva Musica! festival in cooperation with Michal Novinski have decided to prepare a special concert, which via music and video materials from his films will bring visitors on a journey round the world: from the bowels of our Earth to the highest snow-covered peaks, from the green jungles to the frozen, inhospitable poles, from unknown lands to the High Tatras, from extreme adventure to the meditation and philosophy of other cultures. Barabáš lives in stories that are played out far from civilisation, beyond the frontier of the known. For some decades he has been recording his view of our planet in his documentaries, for which he has received many awards throughout the world. More info.
