Emőke Kiss-Végh

Both Emőke Kiss-Végh and Tamás Ördög are young Hungarian actors and theatremakers. They are known for their unorthodox shows and projects staged in flats and unusual venues. Dollardaddy's (Dollár Papa Gyermekei) are one of the youngest Hungarian ensembles, true risk-takers in every sense: experimenting on the boundaries of real life and theatre in a minimalistic style with very little set or costume, re-narrating Ibsen and other classic playwrights while keeping the characters, the situations and the conflicts, but speaking the lines in their own words. Their original acting style, inspired by the Dogma films, invites the audience to be part of a uniquely intimate relationship with the performers: they are seated inside the "living-room," everything is happening just within their grasp.
