1980’s Communist Budapest, amateur folk dancing, disturbing secrets, and government surveillance intertwine to form Our Secrets, performed by the internationally acclaimed ensemble Béla Pintér and Company. Infused with live music and dancing, Our Secrets tells the story of a musician forced to choose between exposing his own criminal sexual behavior and dooming his community.
By turns hilarious and devastating, and thematically reminiscent of the Oscar-winning film The Lives of Others, this epic tale uncovers a generation of artists who learn the hard way that there is no such thing as a right to privacy. Our Secrets offers a searing and incisive look at Hungary’s past while providing a blueprint for the present day.
