The Shadow was written by the Nobel Prize winner Austrian playwright and novelist, Elfriede Jelinek who followed the ancient legend of Orpheus and Eurydice by Ovid. The Hungarian performance a coproduction of Kata Pető and Dorka Porogi. As an actress and a director, they are important characters of the Hungarian independent theatre life.
The Shadow is a self-ironic and a self-involved
monologue performed by Kata Pető. She is the only woman on
stage speaking about her life with Orpheus, her feelings about her
husband and also about her own death. She is surrounded by male
charaters as well, like the members of the popular Hungarian band called
Freakin’ Disco, the musician Árpád Kákonyi and also the well-known
choreographer and dancer Krisztián Gergye. They are different images of Orpheus, Eurydice’s husband, who – after all –
failes to rescue her from the underworld. They express themselves with
music and dance: all the spoken words are Eurydice’s.
The main reason of creating this project was to talk more about feminism and position of women in the 21th century in order to resolve anxieties between the two genders and start new conversations between them.
