Árpád Schilling/Krétakör with Andrea Tompa (Hungary):

March 7th: Theatre as Civic Response

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center’s Spring 2012 season of programs kicks off with a day with Árpád Schilling, Hungarian director of the internationally renowned Krétakör company, and leading Hungarian theatre critic Andrea Tompa. Schilling will present his oeuvre, including traditional theatre—like seminal productions Woyzeck and BLACKland—and the communally constructed performances his company has been devising since 2008. Schilling and Tompa (head of the Hungarian Theatre Critics Association) will discuss how today’s Hungary—with its creeping radicalism, rewritten constitution and diminishing artistic freedoms—cries out for new forms.

Film screenings at 3pm: BLACKland (Krétakör performance, 2004); Urbanrabbits (cirque collaboration, 2009); New Spectator (community project by Krétakör)

Discussion with Schilling & Tompa at 6:30pm
