A documentary theater play, with Romani women investigating the role of being a mother in Hungarian society.

“The performers (bar one) were Romani women from Szomolya, a small village in the Hungarian countryside. From an aesthetic point of view, the performance followed in the tradition of Germany’s Rimini Protokoll, placing everyday people as “experts”’ on the stage, but of greater importance from a Hungarian perspective it demonstrated the right of Romani women to represent themselves. The sociologists Kata Horváth and Marton Oblath, each with more than ten years of contact with this community, invited director Edit Romankovics and dramaturg Eszter Gyulay to participate in their artistic project. Central to the development of the play Long Live Regina! is the use of digital storytelling and psychodrama. Overall, the project has a therapeutic and community-building aspect, where the output as a theatrical production can be shown to a wider audience. The play’s setting depicts a kitchen where eight women are preparing dishes while chatting.” (Gabriella Schuller, See the whole review:
