Female sculptures brought to life, revealed from their versatile costumes, and with gestures abstracted from women’s typical life situations, reform themselves and their relations again and again. They re-arrange the view of the articulated scene with displacements in different rhythms, persistently but unexpectedly.
Among the creations of the Living Picture Theatre with a unique language of form and movement, this street theatre performance uses the variable double-flanged costume of the red-dressed figure to display various female destinies and humorous or grotesque moods accompanied by the dramatic compositions of Astor Piazzolla, who combines Argentine tango with jazz and classical music.
The Hungarian performance Women in Red by Living Picture Visual Theatre is presented in cooperation with the Liszt Institute in Warsaw as part of the Hungarian V4 Presidency.
From 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022, Hungary holds the presidency in the Visegrad Group. The Visegrad Group (also known as V4) is a regional alliance of four Central European countries: the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary. They are neighbouring countries in a similar geopolitical situation, joined by a shared history, culture, and tradition.
By 2004, the V4 succeeded in achieving its main strategic goals – the four countries’ accession to the EU and NATO. As a result, the Visegrad Cooperation became a long-standing framework for the promotion of the region’s joint interests in Europe and beyond. The Visegrad Group is named after the Hungarian town Visegrád, where summit meetings of the Hungarian, Polish, and Bohemian kings took place in 1335, with the aim of settling disputes and launching economic and political cooperation.
The Liszt Institute – The Hungarian Cultural Centre in Warsaw (Liszt Intézet – Magyar Kulturális Centrum Varsó) is one of the oldest institutes of culture in Poland, which started its operation in 1935. In 2016, the Institute came under the authority of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, at the same time becoming the Cultural Division of the Embassy of Hungary in Warsaw.
