Interview with Tamás Szegedi and Márton Illés about Chameleon Girl / Kaméleonlány (Hungary)
Roma Theatre Retrospective 2021
Interview by Rosamaria Kostic Cisneros.
This piece follows the challenges of grandparents, sisters, teachers, preschoolers, and classmates through the tale of a girl with a special power: she can resemble anything and anyone, look into the thoughts and memories of others, and not want to follow the example of others. She wants to live her own life. This superhero story is based on the stories of Roma youth participating in the Independent Theater Hungary's Roma Heroes workshops.
