Káva was founded in 1996, as one of the first Theater in Education companies in the region. In the past 21 years, we have had the luck to create several performances and further projects for nearly 90.000 participants altogether. (Hungary is a small country, if we count with today’s population data, every 108,5th Hungarian has been to our programs.)
We define our work by the term of Theatre of the Participant. Our method uses complex Theater in Education as its bases, yet gives it a very unique site by adding current social problems to its focus. We define our work as art, having a strong social focus. Its complexity lies in the way of meaningful interaction, opened questions, and putting emphasis on the different points of views. Apart from performances – that we have about 120 a theatrical season-, we also have long-term drama projects and community based projects, that we think of as social intervention as well as a work of art.In these 21 years, we have had the luck to participate in international projects with wonderful partners, and we wish to keep going with this work.
