The historical events of the last century have proved several times that social exclusion is an apparently simple solution, but in reality it does not work. Despite this there were people who wanted to settle the issue of minorities, arising again after the Second World War, with population exchange, deportation and forced settlement. This is a sad and meaningless episode of history.
This show is based on the traditional dance and music culture of the Hungarian population still living in Slovakia today. It speaks of the innermost visceral feelings and associations, rather than the intellectual.
We are all the products of interactions between different cultures, ideologies and stories, yet there is an unexplainable and irrational demand in many to distance themselves from everything that is ‘different’. Any permanent isolation results in exclusion though, in all the many areas of our lives. In this case, we are left with the one question: Will we be the excluders or the excluded ones? The basic motivation for “Expatriatisation” is compulsion. The compulsion to move. Zugzwang.
Length: 50 min.
