Builders of the Country

Independent Theater Hungary

Although many see the majority of Roma people as unemployed, Roma workers have always played an important role in building houses. A long time ago generations of Roma built houses from mud bricks. In the 20th century many Roma started working in brick factories. Today many Roma work in the construction industry.

The performance written and directed by Rodrigó Balogh and Márton Illés narrates the societal changes in socialist and later in the free, democratic Hungary. It celebrates the unseen builders of Hungarian history. The production is inspired by real events and individuals, but leaves plenty of room for imagination. What can a Roma people keep and what must they give up to find their place among the majority? How do the many sacrifices affect their family and personal relationships?

 

Independent Theater Hungary has been operating since 2007. Our aim is to start a conversation about social issues that touch all of us, this way drawing attention to personal responsibility: what we, as individuals can do to improve the situation.
