Last day of the festival

The end of the festival is near. But before that we have a day full of performances. From 11 pm Coriolanus in the MU Theatre, from 15 pm Hungarian Feast in the National Theatre, from 6 pm The pitbull's actions in the Tündérgyár near Trafó, from 7 pm Our class in the Katona József Theatre or We live once... in the National Theatre, from 6:30 pm Gardenia in Thalia Theatre and once again the Russian performance, One hour eighteen (minutes) from 8 pm in the Trafó.

We wish you a joyful festival ending!

2 December.

We arrived to the next to last day. The snow is falling. The conference has started.

Today we are watching two documentary theatre performances. Word for Word at 6 pm in the National Theatre is the first verbatim show in Hungary which discusses the Roma murders. The Teatr.doc form Moscow will perform the show entitled One hour eighteen (minutes) from 8 pm at the Trafó House of Contemporary Arts. Their performance processes the case of Sergei Magnitsky, a 37 year-old lawyer who died suddenly while being held in one of the infamous prisons of Moscow, and also deals with the connection between justice system and politics.

Sobers' Silence from 10 pm in the Studio K Theatre. A sequence of etudes makes up the story, in which two worlds mingle, until it becomes hard to decide which one is the more real.

The Coward. Kaisers TV, Ungarn. Whatshit

Three times theatre today. From 5 pm The Coward at Kolibri Cellar, from 8 pm Kaisers TV, Ungarn at Szkéné Theatre and from 10:30 pm Whatshit at the MU Theatre. For technical reasons the performance Whatshit will be a staged reading event, not a preview for which the organizers cannot provide translation. We don't recommend it for non-Hungarian speakers.

But before all this, we will open the conference at the Polish Institute at 3:30 pm. AT the same place you can attend the launch of Theatre After the Change. The book will be presented by theatre historians Thomas Irmer and Attila Szabó.

Caligula's Governor. Siren's Song

We had a day off yesterday, so this evening we give you double. You can watch Caligula's Governor (a co-production of Vádli, Füge and Zsámbéki Színházi Bázis) from 6:30 PM in the Gödör Club and Katona József Theatre's Siren's Song from 21:00 PM in the Chamber. Both of the shows have English translation.

“There is more than just a mapping of a dictatorship. Essentially is about what power is doing to the people, how it distorts them. If one is normal, but has the power, sooner or later it will go crazy, will die, so in one way or another will decay anyway.” (Rémusz Szikszai, director of Caligula's Governor)
