We would like to receive nomination of people who do not work in the spotlight, but are nonetheless invaluable members of our communities and play a key role in independent performance art.

Three of The Symptoms' previous performances are included in the interactive exhibition by Oistat Hungary, organized for the Budapest Autumn Festival. "NEM NAGY TRUVÁJ" ("No big deal") – Technological experiments in a performance art frame is an exciting collection worth visiting.

We are starting the autumn season with a brand new performances: don't miss out on the English-friendly premiere of Afterparty– the fictive ritual of a fictive tribe at Trafó House Budapest!

On the opening night, September 22 we invite you to an After-afterparty with DJ Papa (Tilos Rádió, Cökxpon Ambient) where you'll be able to meet the creators and performers, and scream and shout whatever is built up in you, just like we do on stage.

After the performance on the second night, September 23, we invite you to a roundtable discussion led by drummer Balázs Pándi, who will ask the performers, director Réka Szabó (world-renowned for her documentary, The Euphoria of Being) and beloved jazz singer Veronika Harcsa who collaborated on Afterparty as a sound and music trainer.

Veronika Harcsa is also involved in the fundamental research of The Symptoms

Réka Szabó - who became world-famous with the film The Euphoria of Being - and her company, The Symptoms began their rehearsal process in a completely new way and with an in-depth experimental approach. Their new artistic programme, developed with the methodology of “fundamental research” taken from the field of science, is led by a four- member “senate” consisting of Réka Szabó, Veronika Szabó, Dániel Szász and Patrik Kelemen. They experiment with the organic collaboration of sound and movement, from which, according to their ideas, a piece can evolve that can be interpreted both as a musical work and a dance theater performance. Four dancers -Viktória Dányi, Balázs Oláh, Réka Oberfrank, Kámea Farkas- and the well-known jazz singer, Veronika Harcsa also collaborate with them in the research that pushes the boundaries of art. The premier is scheduled to take place at the end of January 2021 in Trafó.
