What is a bucket list? One list to rule it all – the list of our desires. A list of tasks which we must carry out. Here and now. In our current lives. Act in a video clip, to have a dear-death experience, to perform a sleight of hand, to experience what it is like to be a mermaid, going on a round-the-world trip…

Imre and Tamara heard about the “bucket list” phenomenon a few months ago. They chose the most important items and started carrying out their own desires – and to figure out why they are the chosen ones. However, some of their wishes require the participation of the audience in order to complete their unfinished businesses.

The peculiar desires and secrets of the past linked to them come to life on stage and on film in the dream factory of STEREO Akt, as directed by Martin Boross, in which the creative world of imagination meets with the reality of the current times.
The interactive performance won the main prize (shared award) of FÜGE – Függetlenül Egymással (Independently Together) association’s TITÁNium Titanium Talent Search Platform in spring 2014.

STEREO Akt

In the STEREO Akt performances the theatre is an event, the viewer is a participant, and the essence of the event is the encounter of the reality of the viewer and the imagination of the creator. The audience is not just the viewer of the performance, but active or passive participants, experiencer of a theatre event. There are only participants, and the participation is always voluntary. And the opportunity of the participation is just an offer. The essence of the contents of the STEREO Akt performances is borne in the – often silent – dialogue of the viewers and the performers. We have made site specific performances and ones in a theatre hall.

The theatre makers of STEREO Akt often seek the connection with local communities. Only in 2013 about 60 volunteers and about 40 artists participated in the STEREO Akt projects.

STEREO Akt was founded by Martin Boross and Anikó Rácz in the spring of 2013 as an ongoing cooperation of a theatre director and a producer. The work done together for the past few years has proved to them to develop a light and simple structure of theatre making, which allows them to work with the appropriate team in each project, to find the most open partners each time. In this cooperation the artistic and the production preparation, management and promotion of a project happens parallel. 

Martin Boross is director, dramaturge and performer. He has been directing event-based theatre performances since 2011, in which he has experimented the unconventional positioning and participation of the audience. In the performances that vary in theme and form the attitude of the theatre makes shows similarities: Martin Boross always starts from the question of what will happen to the viewer. This is the reason for attributing dramatic roles to the audience: a postman, a member of a village community, an escaping tourist or a witness. He is interested in the interaction as the dramaturgical technique necessary for the deep and intensive level of perception.
