The State


Venue: ImagineBudapest / Budapest Point
1053 Budapest, Királyi Pál u. 18.

The State is a concept for theatre without actors and without a director. It explores the topics of how we build societies, how democracies function, whether there are agent-saboteurs and what it takes to cooperate with others. It also tells the story of a real Bulgarian man who set himself on fire in protest against the system.

For two years the stages and theatre venues in Bulgaria were closed for "The State" until Berlin's Theatertreffen decided to select the piece in 2015. Since then "The State" has travelled around the world and has been invited to about 20 festivals and venues.

Because of the limited number of seats, registration is mandatory for participation in the event. Please register here: critiqueandculture@gmail.com
