At all times, including and especially today, one of the words that run throughout the world is confrontation. In other words, we live in a world that is spoken of in terms of continuous and endless confrontation. Unfortunately, the word confrontation is used in contexts where the negative connotation of the term predominates, that of conflict, humiliation and the destruction of those who are different – different in words, deeds, mentalities, identities. But confrontation also has positive connotations, everything that matters in a person’s life and in this world – from the smallest joy to the great wonders of the world – is born out of confrontation with ourselves, with our limits and confrontation with difference/different opinion. Theatre is par excellence a space of encounter and confrontation with the world in all its diversity. A confrontation that is identified with the search for truth and that helps us see and understand what we could not see and understand on our own. From 12-17 October, the Tamási Áron Theatre offers the audience a confrontation with the world in 6 performances, gathered in a micro-season.
