Dance theatre adaptation of Ken Kesey’s classic and the legendary film performed to the young and talented composer Kovács Benjámin’s brand new piece. Vidákovics Szláven’s direction together with Vincze Balázs’s choreography aim to reflect the message of the story that is still relevant today. We can look into the reality of a lunatic asylum where a powerful nurse cruelly manipulates the defenceless patients who are unable to or somehow can not confront her. When McMurphy arrives he quickly becomes a threat to the established order of the institution. However, it is only Bromden who understands the significance of his behaviour and the meaning of his intentions. One must fight against inhumanity even if it involves sacrificies.
