At the 0 Milestone
About the performance
„Since the beginning of 2020 has been struggling with the crises caused by the corona virus pandemics, but this play is not about that, it is about what is between us for a long time. This constantly damaging disease symptoms are racism, xenophobia, irredentism, chauvinism and all related behaviours” (Ándi Gherghe)
The base of the play is a four-story text by the contemporary Transylvanian playwright Csaba Székely, Aliens - Four Political Children's Pieces, of which the director staged three in Satu-Mare entitled „At the 0 Milestone” The play originally was performed in parks between 11-13 September, a story performed at each location by the actors of the Harag György Company and Mihai Raicu Company.
„We are born without prejudice. But we are born into a world full of prejudice and we soon learn who the bad people are. The good ones, of course, are us. We are better than „them”, because „they” want bad things for us. And after all we want to hurt them too, but we have a well-founded reason for it. True, sometimes we make mistakes about our prejudices and realize that everything we know about “them” and “us” is actually different. Or that it's not true at all. The comedy is about these “righteous ones,” with teaching tales completely detached from reality. ” (Csaba Székely)
