International community and Attila József: Words that still come to life today

2020 fb hu.jpg

"This performance strongly reinforced my feeling of being fortunate, as my life is better than that of Attila József. I have a mother, a father, and a homeland..."


On Friday afternoon, we presented our performance "I Am Not, Only Others See Me," based on the texts of Attila József, to the international students of the Balassi Scholarship Program. This was a special event for us because we engaged with a group representing 12 different native languages and cultures, yet these young people speak Hungarian at intermediate, advanced, or even native levels. It was exciting to listen to Attila József's texts together and then discuss the thoughts and feelings they evoked after the performance. The students unanimously agreed on the relevance of these texts in 2024, regardless of their countries or cultures. We thank the young audience for their attention, the thoughts shared during the discussion, and the fact that we could experience a true Encounter through Theatre together.

"This presentation helped me understand József Attila's life and poetry much better than any textbook has so far."


Yesterday, the H13 Kultpont hosted our presentation titled "I Am Not, Only Others See," which was based on the texts of József Attila. We presented it to the twelfth-grade students of Szent Anna Greek Catholic High School and Technical School. This unconventional literature session provided an opportunity for young people to delve into the texts written by the poet and to share personal thoughts sparked by the discussion following the presentation. We appreciate the attention and the openness of the class to get closer to the personality and poetry of József Attila!


The event was supported by H13 Kultpont!

Back to Székelyvarság: Acceptance and Discovery of ourself

2020 fb hu.jpg

"The Osonó has helped me tremendously in recent years. I've grown stronger, been able to make decisions in every situation life throws at me. Even in everyday life, I can use a lot of what I gain from these weekends with Osonó. And perhaps most importantly: I've learned to dare to be myself."


Two members of our group, Misi Fazakas and Oszkár Mucha, held a series of self-awareness and motivational training sessions in Székelyvarság over the weekend, for those wonderful people who always enjoy coming back. Once again, the Miracle happened, the true Encounter. Together, we experienced again that "No matter how much you immerse yourself in yourself, you can only wash your face in someone else." We could be ourselves, simply, honestly. We laughed, played seriously, reinforced each other, delved deeper, dealt with our souls. We thank each other's attention, the joy of personal togetherness, the love, Pál Emese, for organizing this uplifting and defining event for all of us once again, for the umpteenth time, and to Emília Fábián and Enikő Tifán for their nurturing care! We are incredibly grateful!
