Édes Hús

Shakespeare tragédiájának gyönyörű töredékeiből álomszerűen szővödik össze Júlia története. Júlia két hangon és nyelven (angol-magyar) szólal felidézve azt a sűrű, búja és végzetes hat napot, mely szenvedélyt és kétségbeesést, gyászt, nászt és halált hozott neki. A magyar nyelven játszó Ubrankovics Júlia, aki a 40. Magyar Filmszemlén elnyerte a legjobb színésznő díját és Sophie Thomson, aki Londonból érkezett Budapestre a nővévállás rítusaként, középkori dalokkal, hús-vér eleven erővel és bájjal idészik meg Shakespeare legszebb szellemét: Júliát. In this bilingual (English and Hungarian) performance beautiful fragments of Shakespeare's tragedy evoke Juliet as an eternal memory, as a waking dream. She re-lives those sweet, dense and dark six days that brought her passion and desperation, grief and joy and her untimely death. Ubrankovics Julia who plays in Hungarian has recently received the prize for best actress on the 40th Hungarian Filmweek. Together with Sophie Thompson from London they take you through this rite of passage into womanhood with rituals and medieval singing. This theatre-seance conjures up Shakespeare's most beautiful ghost: Juliet.

Julia and her Penis

I woke up and realised, that Hungarian Julia in fact could be played by a man.

Yes, yes, yes.

How exiting. Now, that creates a whole new universe of directorial possibilities. A few thoughts on the subject:

- Not that creative choices have to be justified, but as we well know there were no woman on the Elisabethan stage. Female roles were played by young boys. Oh, this could be very good. The stage chemistry between a heterosexual woman and a gay man. Very exiting. A beautifull transvestite. 

- The sociologist in me always argues that every performance I make should have social relevance. Eventhough the story is predominantly heterosexual this performance shall not be. Even if it is one story told by two women, this piece will have a queer feel to it. Julia and Julia is a piece in lesbian textuality I belive. But if there was a cross-dressed gay man on stage and a woman...

It could be androgenous and very sexy. Or drag-queen very sexy. Or a bit out of place.

Wow.

Great idea. Is there a man in fair Budapest who would desire such role?

Where do I find him?

Time to visist some gay websites.

And does the performance then become a marketing-challange, catering for a sub-culture?

I feel, that it is very relevant to talk about and work with gay issues. Ok, it is not my fight, I am a pseudo-lesbian at best, latent bisexual, but in Hunagry today it has to be adressed.

This could realy politicize the performance and make it relevant in current cultural context. I will think about this more.

Much more.
