Dance theatre performance after Munkácsy Mihály

The dance theatre production ECCE HOMO is a unique take on the paintings of Munkácsy Mihály. On the one hand, the performance uses characteristical elements from the painter genius' life, on the other hand, it combines the meaning, the message and the strong dramatic character of the works of art with 21st century contemporary ideas. The whole performance follows the almost philosophical idea of "Behold the Man", dissecting human frailty, love, mockery, desire, the peculiarities of human nature, burdened with original sin. The artists use an ever-moving, ever-changing projection to transform the space into a specific setting for Munkácsy's paintings.
