Our performance is about the poet Attila József, one of the most prominent figures in Hungarian literature. But he was not only a poet, he was also a human being. There are real feelings, such as anger, love, disappointment and craving, behind his poems. There are also women behind these poems. So we examined the most important women and, with their help, tried to reconstruct the circumstances of how some of his poems were born. Four women, one man - two performers.
The performance is neither surrealistic, because it is too realistic, nor fully realistic, because it is controlled by fever dreams and exaggerated feelings.
It is neither a reading, nor a literature class, nor a psychological lecture, however, I do recommend it to literary people, students and psychologists as the performance covers a large section of Attila József's poetry, his life, and the characterisation of his soul.
