UNDERLAND || Hungarian Stage Art Festival ||Copenhagen
Underland - an interactive scenic reading about migration, emigration, political and social issues.
We focused on our cultural differences during the 3 days long (short), intensive rehearsal period.
June 2015. Huge billboards allover in Hungary. Against refugees. The right-wing Danish People’s Party makes huge gains in the country’s general election. Three young theatre-makers meet in a small theatre in Copenhagen. I'm Hungarian -
living in Berlin. Jonas is Danish but his personality has changed a lot during his studies in Berlin. Alexander is Danish - and well, he is OK.
What can we tell, ask and share in a common room?
What is "konfliktsky"? What would you ask from my prime minister? How do the refugees react to the billboard action? Can I show a video about it? What is your biggest problem with your society? What is my mother's opinion about my new life in a new country? How is the real Danish fear? And what if we don't give a shit of the differences but try to cooperate?
