Interview with Richard O'Neill and Tamás Szegedi about European Family (United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Hungary)
Roma Theatre Retrospective 2021
Interview by Rosamaria Kostic Cisneros.
Members of a Roma family live in different parts of Europe when the lockdown begins. They can only communicate on video chat and must face losses and challenges in their isolated lives. Conflicts and secrets are also revealed. It seems that only magic can help. These four stories are based on both real stories of Roma people enduring lockdown in different European countries and the personal stories and improvisations of the artists. This piece was created this piece from artists home countries, and the artists were connected only by the internet and their common passion for theatre.
