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.

Moment of Reveal

Is this blog a spoiler?

I wonder: If we document and expose all the creative mechanisms of making this performance than will this not spoil - for those who read it before they come to the show - the moment of curtains up?

Theatre in a way operates with the magic of the unexpected. You enter a space where the laws of every day life are suspended. You do not know what to expect. And this is partly a beauty of it.

Now, there is no giving away the plot here: chances are everybody will know what happens to Juliet.

But still. A few points on this issue:

1. There is no way one can expose a 3 dimensional event in 2 dimensions.

2. Individual perception gives the performance its final shape. Whatever we give away here, will be only one side of the story. (Hopefully later members of the audience will contribute and than it will be much more complex, but never whole)

3. Chances are that more people will read this after the performance than before.

4. The more of a "spoiler" this blog becomes the most significant it is as a document in terms of theatre history. Even if the performance ends up being unsignificant, this blogs methodology might proove sighnificant. 

Anyhow, I hope it does not spoil the moment of reveal. That is my favourite part. Even at the university I used to ask my teachers not to come to rehersals: I wanted them to see only the finished product. I felt that if they have seen some parts of the show, than the whole would not work that powerfull anymore.

It is like watching somebody decorating the Chrismas tree. Not quite the same as walking in the room and seeing it for the first time in its full glory.

I will want to ask people about what they thought about this.

Remind me.
