Political satire at its finest. Current events of both national and international significance portrayed in brief episodes – characters in tuxedos and evening gowns fraternise with topics like the Olympics, racism and election fraud. Through sharp wit, plentiful music and masterful acting talent, this piece is highly aesthetic in a painstakingly funny, although equally provocative way.
With Hungary's entry to the European Union in 2004 as inspiration, Kretakor responded with a satiric review that catalysed the sort of homespun controversy in Budapest that is best associated with filmmaker Michael Moore in America. A production which confirms that the acclaimed international reputation of director Árpád Schilling, and the Theatre Kretakor, is well deserved. Whether a stripped bare plundering of Checkov's The Seagull or a politically charged original creation, BLACKland, Kretakor challenges expectations without abandoning the tools of theatrical convention.Blackland
