Dementia, or the Day of My Great Happiness

Theatre

ca. 130 min

The Lipot is a well-known psychiatric hospital in Budapest. When it was bought out by an investor, the patients landed on the street. Kornél Mundruczó and co-author Kata Webér provide a glimpse into the chasms of a society that disposes of people who are no longer marketable. Dementia is a dazzling musical farce which exposes a deteriorated system.              Interview with Kornél Mundruczó "A life in contradictions" (German) Part of "Leaving is not an option? – Current artistic positions from Hungary"
