From the two talks we had with the audience (after Petőfi Irodalmi Múzeum and Shiraz Perzsa Étterem performances) and the notes and messages that many members of the audience sent us, we have selected these comments that we show anonymously and that we honestly think provide an overview of the general reaction that the play provoked. This contact with the audience has been very helpful and we'd like to take this opportunity to thank all who participated by generously sharing their opinions. We plan and hope that these meetings became a habit in the frame of our work, because we give a great importance to the audience feedback, which is for whom we work. Each and every one of your contributions help us to go ahead and feed the approach of what we do, especially in this case that we consider a work in progress. Much of what has been said will be useful to outline clearly the show both in its new version in Spanish and in its upcoming performance in Hungarian.
Well, it was certainly very... philosophical. Contemporary. Provocative and at the same time funny. It makes you think. Somehow it's also a mirror of society.
Congratulations on your yesterday performance! It was great, I liked it very much! Such a crazy character yours! I hope to see more of your theater in the future.
The time and effort you've put into this show are undoubtedly admirable. Go ahead with your work!
Congratulations to all for the success of yesterday, the theatre was crowded! Your interpretation, Carlos, was impressive. Such a great artist you are! Please tell us about the next opportunities, I will not miss one.
After the show I couldn't wait to talk with you... As it wasn't possible, obviously we went for a drink to your health.
It looks like everything went smoothly. Congratulations! You don't know how happy I am! Take a short walk in the Spanish stages, so that we could see you.
Congratulations on your show! The choice of subject was surprising, the execution was perfect, the character was enormeous. The experience is unforgettable!
You did a great job, we really enjoyed it!
Great! Although I would not commit a murder to give material to the philosophers.
The text and the character were so demanding... I could hardly pay atention to anything else!
I've never seen a play like that... The subject is disturbing and is treated in a very original way. I hope to see you soon in Hungary in one of the theaters in Budapest.
Such a provocative character! It made me think a lot after the show.
I loved the atmosphere that you have achieved with so few elements. Perhaps the audience members sitting on the table, with their daily clothes, broke a little this atmosphere. But the venue, the music, how you display the subtitles and... Well, that character so unpleasant and so provocative, everything was very successful and well done. And your acting was fantastic!
This in Spain would be a hit!
You have managed to totally make me forget about reality and enter absolutely into your world.
Despite the grotesque style and ghostly world you have created everything was perfectly credible. For sure there are people like that somewhere. It's scary!
Listen, the adaptation was really great. I read the novel and while I was there It came all this world at once. It was a very different feeling from the one you have as a reader. I think it's great to bring things like that to the theatre.
I think you've been very daring to relate art with murder. Fine arts only? What about the other?
The text is superb. Such an effort to memorize it!
It's the ideal type of play for these days. I wish you good luck with your work.
I love the dumb character, the waiter, and how you have include him into the story. The relationship between the two characters is sinister... very funny!
It is unclear whether this play is a comedy or a tragedy. People next to me did not know whether to laugh or... It seemed like they were afraid to make fun of such a serious issue.
The character was disgusting, but more surprising is that at certain times and in the end, I felt pity on him. You succeed in bringing humanity to someone so repulsive, cynical and defending those ideas about the murder. It's amazing!
You got us all into your world. We really enjoy being members of that macabre Association... For a while we ceased to be audience and we felt a little like actors. I was waiting for the dessert. Congratulations!
The task now is to educate the audience to enjoy such plays.
We find interesting material and your idea to continue working on this is very motivating. Good luck!
This is the kind of humor I like. Ironic and intelligent. Black humor. It's very Hungarian!
This work must be seen without subtitles and phocus the most on the text and interpretation.
Well, I thought it was terrible ... I do not think that the issue of murder is funny...
But where do you inspired to do this work?! I think it's necessary to have more pieces like this in our theatres.
Your character was sinister, repulsive, pedantic, funny, tender, grotesque, charismatic... That contradictory and yet was logical! We did spend a great time and felt many different things.
To us who were sitting with you at the table, we found an amazing experience. We had never seen a play from so close. We were totally submerged. Let us know when you do it again!
After the play one is left stunned. We took home a lot of feelings and a lot to think about.
Who said that the theater that makes you think is boring? If anyone doubt it I'll recommend him to see your work.
