Hello Everybody!

We have good news for you: the Contemporary Drama Festival Budapest 2014 and its Hungarian Showcase Programme is here again, organized between 28 November and 8 December. This way, you have the opportunity to see a selection of outstanding and innovative new Hungarian theatre performances of the last and the new season surtitled or simultaneously translated in English!

This year, it seems like what theatre-makers are most interested in today is the current social and political situation in Hungary. In some way or another, it is present in every single one of the performances in our Showcase Programme, regardless of the material / sources these theatre-makers have been working from.

This selection shows genre and aesthetical diversity. What do we mean when we say diversity?

In the Showcase Programme, you can see performances or presentations of performances created by the new Hungarian theatre generation represented by young directors (Balázs Benő Fehér, Tamás Ördög, Ferenc Sinkó, Attila Soós) and young playwright Csaba Mikó, middle generation Hungarian directors not immensely well-known abroad (Péter Kárpáti, Pál Göttinger, Gábor Tengely) and the most outstanding representatives of contemporary Hungarian theatre (Béla Pintér, Árpád Schilling, Sándor Zsótér, Csaba Horváth and playwright-director duo the Mohácsi brothers).

You can see performances of author’s theatre, physical theatre, dance theatre, concert theatre and youth theatre. Therefore, we could really say that it is the season of diversity in CDF. That's why our motto this year is Enjoy Diversity!

For Industry Professionals, we are organizing the Visitors’ Programme (including the Hungarian Showcase, an International Conference, the Industry Series, the Festival Club Programme and overall assistance by our Visitors’ Programme Coordinators) accompanying the Hungarian Showcase. If you are interested in the Visitors’ Programme, send an e-mail to guests2014.dramafestival@gmail.com

As for the actual performances in the Showcase Programme, we are going to inform you about each one via separate posts here and on our Facebook Page.

Enjoy Diversity!
