“WHO – The 001 Alkotócsoport (The Actors Group) consists of freshly graduated and not yet graduated students of acting. Their leader is Márk Radnai who graduated as an actor in 2012. They have already produced a minimal thriller (In Dire Straits – Kutyaszorítóban) inspired by Taratino and a comedy (She was still there at Lepsény –Lepsénynél még megvolt), an adapted version of a comedy of the 1930s. They have also held a performance using new technical tools e.g. theatrical screening, to present the subculture of drug users. (Meanwhile in Kansas can be seen at the Festival).


WHAT – The show presents one night of four taxi drivers. Jarmusch’s atmosphere and Tarantino’s dialogues are recalled in the 90 minutes. Not lives, only moments are shown. The genre of the performance is film-theatre: the film is born in front of our eyes, live, in real time, presenting micro realism locked up in a car.


WHY – It is an exciting question whether the theoretically repeatable and stylized (film) is able to appear as one-time, unrepeatable and palpable (theatre). Are the amateur film actors able to part from reality and the authors to create an illusion which captures or even fills the audience’s attention? Is the cinema theatre and the theatre cinema? You can find the answers in the Átrium Film-Theatre which was originally built as a nightclub, and then it became a cinema and now has been reopened as a stage for all kinds of artistic productions.” (István Ugrai)
