Eternal Yorick - Life book Csaba Antal

February 3. - March 19.
Csaba Antal: Trust in Theatre - Kunsthalle, institution of the Hungarian Academy of Arts.
Theatre is divided and it has been facing this division, a hallmark of its condition, since the emergence of staging. Two camps are opposing each other, both defining themselves in terms of their radicality. They are the ones having shaped the destiny of the European stage, while the rest, the undecisive, the lukewarm, have been "vomited out", as declared in the Apocalypse. Jerzy Grotowski liked and used this biblical reference to conflicts opposing steadfast enemies to… conciliators rounding out the rough edges, soothing confrontations and making compromises without explicitly taking sides.
