by BWW News Desk - Dec 5, 2016

Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) is pleased to present the New York premiere of Our Secrets, in which the world-renowned Bela Pinter and Company from Hungary look back at the absurd but true phenomenon of government surveillance of the amateur folk dancing scene in Cold War Budapest. By turns hilarious, disturbing and poignant, and reminiscent of the Oscar-winning film The Lives of Others, Pinter's play tells the story of a musician forced to choose between exposing his own criminal sexual acts and dooming his community. This no-holds-barred production, directed by Pinter, 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 Soviet occupied past while providing insight into the present day-WikiLeaks, Edward Snowden, and security cameras on every corner.   (more...)
