Black Symphony – Genet on Film

see moreA physical theatre version of Jean Genet’s play The Blacks was performed in a cellar-theatre in Budapest by the alternative theatre company, Domino in 1970. Led by Miklos Kollo, the company was regularly banned by the Communist regime. The Blacks was closed down after only a few performances after tickets were sold for triple price on the blackmarket.
The film Black Symphony is a (film) adaptation of this (theatre) adaptation. Though Black Symphony is a double interpretation and a twofold transformation of a provoking play it still remains just as provoking as the play itself.
