“A meteorite is a natural object from space that is not destroyed when it collides with the Earth or with other heavenly bodies.” What does the collision of cultures actually mean? The separation from the parent body which leaves an impact on the foreign hostile environment as well as in the person arriving? What kind of political and psychological environment could have been in Hungary when the revolution broke out sixty years ago? Furthermore, can you expect a similar situation in the near future? Can you actually do anything if you want to change the present situation? What are the adequate forms of resistance? As young theater creators, we seek the answers to these questions through collecting and recording personal stories of the survivors of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, who emigrated to America. These interviews were made in September 2016 in New York. The purpose of this particular performance is to bring the spirit of 1956’s Revolution close to our generation. The dramatization of individual stories and destinies will bring the events of the 1956 Revolution and the War of Independence home to younger generations.
'MOONSTONE' will be performed in Hungarian, with English subtitles.
