An exciting theater play will be organized in Pécs, Hungary in spring 2022, introducing the Madam Troupe. The play entitled “Our Colors Towards You” is about discovering the meaning of colors, involving blind artists.
Why are colors important, how do they affect us if we’ve never seen them??
During the play colors are mainly present from personal stories, such as moods, emotions and feelings, in order to get closer together.
Music, dance and text are equally important, all three are created during the rehearsal process, created by the artist team itself. The accessible performance affects all senses, so everyone can find it in it which can be enjoyed.
The performance will be followed by a 45-minute motion workshop, where the audience can experience how the artists worked. Actors show how they were able to convey the sensations of color to each other through movement and sound.
Marcell Kopa, an amateur blind actor from this play, who is a member of the Hungarian partner team ARTcoWorkers, commented on the special collaboration so:
“Colors and dance. These are the two things that man finds difficult to link with blindness. Similar thoughts were spinning in me too when I said YES to the request. How do you express anything with dancing? Especially one as abstract as colour?
I think the end result surprised me the most. I learned new movement techniques and got to know new concept areas. I learned that even though we have universal concepts of colors, we also have individual interpretations.What did the whole rehearsal mean to me as a blind man? If I had to sum it up in one word: liberation. The concept within me which means a given color, I could shout silently out to the world.“
