In the seventies as a member of an avantgarde theatre group that made unusual performances in special places I also made the scenery for the performances.
For two events that took place in Derkovits Művelődési ház in Budapest in 1973, I designed special viewing boxes from thick cardboard panels and rolls. The spectators were invited into the boxes hanging from the ceiling - one event with one person/box and another with 9 persons/box. The performances were sound, light and motion events in darkness, and the relationship between the performers and the spectators seemed to be like in a peep-show. Uncomfortable situations, loneliness and mass-fear. The antiart, surrealist theatre was put together from chaotic gesture- and text fragments, a parody of the traditional shouting theatre.
