George Konrád: Searching Hands

György Konrád the writer of the lyrics of the concert theatre is one of the well-known figures of contemporary Hungarian literature. Konrád’s prose begins at that notorious Wannsee connoisseur, where cool, calm and sober gentleman decided the fate of the European Jews and their actual destruction. Konrád seeks the answers to the questions: how we become the killers of our own kind, what brings a man to destroy another; meanwhile he shares stories about his childhood, how he witnessed as the sky first became grey in his hometown, then it turned black and how obscurities, peculiar coincidences, timings, travels back and forth, saved his life eventually, while his relatives almost became victims of that dark age. Ádám Boncz and the Experts Band’s concert talks about time, history, like a storyteller reminding the audience how important it is to remember.


'SEARCHING HANDS' will be performed in English.
