This time we concern ourselves with different processes that occur in the Hungarian dance and theatre life.

The first section deals with Péter Telihay, who directed theatre performances of high artistic quality showing one and the same approach. This season he put on stage performances that examine all the distortions caused by power: consequences on the private life and destiny of those who hold it (Moliere - based on Bulgakov's piece at Szabadka, The Thunderstorm by Ostrovsky at Veszprém, Urs Widmer's Top dogs at Szolnok, at the Bárka (Ark) theatre Liliom by Ferenc Molnár and Gogol's The Inspector General and).

We also deal with pieces of Kata Juhász and Attila Gergely, the performance of the Hungarian National Ballet's young choreographers. There are essays on the 20th Century by Tamás Juronics at the Szeged Contemporary Ballet and on Angelin Preljocaj's performance entitled "N".
