k2 – PÉTER ZÁVADA: MOONSTONE

View Program for Moonstone

What does the collision of cultures actually mean? The separation from the parent body which leaves an impact on the foreign hostile environment as well as in the person arriving? What kind of political and psychological environment could have been in Hungary when the revolution broke out sixty years ago? Furthermore, can you expect a similar situation in the near future? Can you actually do anything you want to change the present situation? What are the adequate forms of resistance? As young theater creators, we seek the answers to these questions through collecting and recording personal stories of the survivors of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, who emigrated to America. These interviews were made in September 2016 in New York. Moonstone brings the spirit of 1956’s Revolution and war of independence close to a new generation.  

In Hungarian with English subtitles. 

This program is presented as part of the Hungary Live Festival.
