angol változat: Man. Woman. Man and Woman. Woman and Man. In the words of someone, two people, once: they have made a mistake. It’s a very human story. About the tragedy of two very well-known individuals. It’s a very personal story and yet: how did it become so impersonal? We think of men as a group, women alike. We lack something personal to relate to. If we want to escape or discover a need in ourselves that overturns established rules, society considers it a violation of the rules and punishes us.
What does a couple mean in our society? What is its task? Our show does not seek the answer in the story of creation, it merely starts from it. It weighs up the power and pity in our relationships, self-realisation and the search for intimacy, human fragility and brutality, the power of desire and the desperate appearance of normality. It creates a non-judgmental reality in which the viewer can easily find their place. It is a subjective, intimate, apolitical reality that does not seek ethics. It is a creation that is not masculine or feminine, only human. Eva. Adam. Man. “Done!”
Performance financed by the Communitas Foundation and the Bethlen Gábor Fund.
