Rehearsal For Truth Theater Festival / play (Hungary)

September 27, 2017 , 8:00 - 10:00 PM

[4th Floor]

"Home" (Otthon) is the second show of the family trilogy loosely based on a Strindberg play (The Pelican) presented by a small group of young theatre makers usually performing in a small, sterile environment like a rehearsal room or ballet room. An intimate and intensive experience, very much based on the art of the actor, of a rarely produced drama about familial politics and economic inequality that resonates in the same way as when the play was first staged in 1907. Part of Rehearsal for Truth, a unique festival presenting the best in Central European theater, organized under the auspices of Gale A. Brewer, Manhattan Borough President, and Daniel Herman, Minister of Culture of the Czech Republic.

Presented by dollardaddy's. Directed by Tamas Ordog. Krisztina Urbanovits as Elise, Mate Dezso Georgita as Fredrik, Emoke Kiss-Vegh as Gerda and Tamas Ordog as Axel.

The show will be performed in Hungarian with English subtitles. Please note the production contains partial nudity. A talk-back after the show with the performers and creators, introduced by Attila Szabo, Deputy Director, Hungarian Theatre Museum and Institute of the Petofi Literary Museum.

Rehearsal for Truth is organized by Vaclav Havel Library Foundation and BBLA, in partnership with Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Slovak performing arts institutions to highlight Havel’s legacy as a playwright through live performances, panel discussions, exhibitions and an award ceremony. It seeks to establish exchanges between U.S. and Central European theater professionals. The festival reflects not only Havel’s contribution to 20th century theater but also his belief in the potential of Central European cultural traditions to enrich human existence in the modern age.
