During my residency at the Dclinic studios I have been writing a 36 pages treatment for a Swedish Webb-series, produced by the Swedish Film Institute. I´ve been working with it fulltime since I got to Zalaegerszeg.
But during my stay I also have prepared a performance; I have been collecting letters. Written by aged women living in homes for the elderly here Zalaegerszeg, where they in the letters, mourning the loss of spouses and family members that died during wars, resisting dictatorships, or revolting against fascism. The letters reflect the heartbreak that the elderly in Hungary live with every day. I find it difficult to approach the racial perspective of Eastern Europe, and in particular, Hungary. My performance will be a way for me to be critical of Hungary’s inconsistent political organ.
