The rehearsals for Visky András' production Porno, directed by Răzvan Mureșan, which has its opening in September 2019, have started at the "Euphorion" Studio of the National Theatre of Cluj-Napoca.
Visky András is artistic director at the Hungarian State Theatre of Cluj, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Theatre and Television from the Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, Professor at Károli Gáspár University of Budapest, member of the "Széchenyi" Academy of Letters and Arts affiliated with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences from Budapest, and last but not least, a playwright in Lessing's sense of the term, and a writer. He wrote several volumes of poetry, prose, and especially theatre: The Escape, The Disciples, Juliet, Long Friday, Alcohol Drinkers, Born for Never, I Killed my Mother, Porno. The translation of his book The One who Sees the Voice - Márti Sipos in dialogue with Visky András was published at the "Camil Petrescu" Cultural Foundation, as a supplement of the magazine Theatre Today. George Banu said about the author: "I have known Visky András for a very long time, and I think our authentic, deep friendship relies on the outmost respect I have both for his texts and for his existential relation with the theatre. For him, theatre is not just smoke screen, is not posh entertainment, but an act of reflection, which we are invited to constantly reiterate in his performances produced with Tompa Gábor".
Visky András was kind enough to answer our questions and give us details about the writing and production of the performance Porno, which was already presented in theatres from the United States, France, Hungary, Poland, but also to share with us his thoughts about theatre.
