Roma Theatre Retrospective 2020
Featuring Roma artists from the Roma Heroes Theater Festival, Hungary
Although Roma are the largest ethnic minority in Europe, they still experience high level of racism and have to deal with many societal issues. Additionally, Roma are being represented in a very stereotypical way in the media and art world. The Roma theatre has more than a century long past with active professional theatre groups in many European countries, but unfortunately, they are still hardly known. The Roma Heroes Theater Festival initiated by the Independent Theater Hungary is the only international Roma theatre encounter in the World, which have been organized in every year since 2017. Many of the artists and their work are featured in this current series.
