Abstract

When the testimony of horrific and tragic events that occurred in one’s life becomes poetry, a theatre performance born from this premise is in many ways sensitive and multi-layered. The responsibility of presenting a willingly exposed personal account becomes a burden and a privilege at the same time. “Porn. The Story of my Wife” by András Visky tells about a true story that occurred in the author's family.
