Árpád Schilling/Krétakör [HU]
14.05 – 16.05.2012
His adaptation of The Seagull was one of the highlights of the 2006 Kunstenfestivaldesarts. Shortly afterwards, the Hungarian director Árpád Schilling bad farewell to the international circuit. He broadened the circle of participants and enriched the means of expression in his productions to give voice to the most relevant social issues. He has recently returned with Krízis-trilógia. The fascinating final part, A papnő (The Priestess), includes autobiographical references. We see an experienced actress leaving the theatres of Budapest to teach drama to young Roma children in the countryside. The Priestess is as much a documentary film as it is a socio-educational experiment conducted on stage with teenagers. A disturbing theatrical adventure.
