János Háy: Father's daughter

Háy’s text is based on the figure of Polish nurse Irena Sendlerowa, who rescued more than 2,000 children from the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. However, the real background was only a starting point  for the author –as he himself mentions in the preface to his work- and for  the creative team  to observe and traverse the other side of the coin, while exploring external oppression, vulnerability, the situation of confinement;  the inner confinement, the limits within us, the inability of man to true freedom, and the fact that “we are prisoners of our own prison and cannot destroy a wall, and we are glad  when others build a wall around us, as we believe we are in captivity because of them”.
