posterThe story of a break-up is the intrigue on the surface. The feelings, intellect, coices and crisis of the characters are real, but between the terms of the values of “enthusiasm” and common ethics the institution of marriage might have different meanings. [Vörösmarty Theatre]

„We are standing at the boundary of a new era which will be ruled – either guided or destroyed – by science. The old tragedies die out, and we cannot tell if there will be any new ones as today we are already able to inject the soul of a doe into a buck, and vice versa. Those who are not able to evaluate mathematical integrals or do not master experimentation techniques should never comment on the matters of the soul.” (Robert Musil)
