For his latest production Krisztián Gergye, one of the most versatile figures of contemporary Hungarian movement art has chosen the Péter Nádas drama trilogy [Cleaning–Meeting–Funeral] and has staged the second and third pieces of the trilogy in two separate but integrally related performances. Meeting and Funeral can be seen in two different venues in a joint performance by the Bárka Theatre, the MU Theatre and his own company. Mime and dance play a big part in both, also evoking the first piece of the trilogy. But of the two it is Funeral that uses mainly body language. “There will be an Actor and an Actress on the stage,” writes Krisztián Gergye, “in the roles of two dancers, but they barely speak at all. We follow the instructions the author gave for Meeting: that the performance should be accompanied by three musicians, but this can only be achieved if there is harmony between the acting and the musical construction. We will apply this conception to Funeral, but we reverse the relationship: the text of the drama will be the musical material of the »dance performance«.”
A joint production of MU Theatre, Budapest Autumn Festival, Bárka Theatre and Krisztián Gergye Company.
