BEING SÁNDOR TAR / 2021
Performance as closing event of the solo exhibition “Simultaneous City” by Hajnal Németh at DMK – Csokonai Literary Lab in Debrecen in 2021.
The performance “Being Sándor Tar” (2021) is a public casting in the form of a screen test, which although staged and choreographed, allows free space for individual improvisation. The piece is actually a Sándor Tar casting, i.e. the personification of the writer by several candidates, regardless of age and gender.
