A project by Katarina Šević and Gergely László – 2017
The street play The Curfew is an alternative form of public demonstration.
A troupe roves the streets of Budapest. They push in front of them a three-meter high egg-shaped, multiplayer megaphone. They make great noise. They stop at busy public squares to perform their play as a speaking choir about the transfiguration of a group of security guards. The members of the group vow to give back the voice to the people from whom they previously took it away. With their presence, the troupe, in and of itself are proof that today Budapest’s streets and public squares can indeed be spaces of independent self-expression.
