About Date an Eastern European

The Hungarian theater collective STEREO AKT is taking on the role of matchmaker and inviting the audience on an online date. Everything has been prepared: a cosy restaurant with a good atmosphere, a friendly waiter with a nice smile, and, most importantly, an attractive dating partner from Eastern Europe. The spectator – you – simply has to take a seat and get to know them. But what does it mean to be Eastern European? And to date one?

STEREO AKT is one of the most progressive Hungarian contemporary theatre collectives, which creates event-like performances with the leadership of Martin Boross. Theatre is an event, audience members are participants, and the point of the event is the meeting of the participants’ reality and the fantasy of the artist. The essence of STEREO AKT performances is born from the – often wordless – dialogue between audience and performers.
