The Heroes of the Shaft 1.5.5.
The Heroes of the Shaft / Katarina Šević & Tehnica Schweiz (Gergely László, Péter Rákosi)
Vernissage: 17.01.2012, 8pm
The Heroes of the Shaft was a series of four tableau vivant acts, written and performed by a group of friends, The Heroes of the Shaft Company. The performed stories draw from recent news, legends and memories, and deal with permanent conflicts between the individual and the community.
„WE are in a mine, where the shaft has collapsed because of a gas explosion. A group of miners are stuck underground, waiting helplessly for the assistance to arrive. Having nothing else to do, they entertain each other with stories, for tales are the best cure against hunger, anxiety, and boredom. This cycle is about these miners, and their stories are about the rough outside world, about coexistence, isolation, vileness, failure, fortune and hope.”

Júlia Bársony, János Borsos, István Bukovics, Gábor Döme, Krisztina Erdei, Anna Forgács, Tamás Kaszás, Katarina Šević, Nóra Lajkó, Gergely László, Júlia László, Ágnes Éva Molnár, Péter Müllner, Szilvi Nagy, Péter Rákosi, Beatriz Schnee, Bea Selmeczi, Katalin Simon, Dániel Sipos, Zsófi Szemző, Gábor Szohr, Zsófi Váradi, Viktória Vass, Dániel Zafir.
