According to a press release, the company chose the name Micro because it performs scenes lasting no more than 15 minutes in tiny spaces. The members and themes of the pieces will change on a monthly basis. One session consists of scenes performed independently of each other, continuously for a total period of two hours.
Budapest Micro says the shows are free and “thereʼs no need to dress up.”
According to the company, its goal is “to bring people from different walks of life together, including both Hungarians and foreigners, civilians and performing art professionals and, as a result, produce a melting pot of styles and viewpoints, a space for dialogue perpetuated by an openness to diversity and a common endeavor to unveil and interpret the world around us.”
The “micro dramas” will run in Szimpla Kert every Tuesday and Thursday between 5 and 7 p.m. During each performance period, five dramas will be performed in five different spaces.
There will be four more days of performance this summer: July 17, 19, 24, 26. Performances are expected to resume sometime during the fall.
