The Square

Slovak National Theatre Drama

02 February 2019

By Ruben Östlund
Directed by Marián Amsler

A square. Four-by-four metres. An installation of a square placed in the gallery turns it into the intentionally provocative so-called contemporary art. Together with other quirky installations, it is intended to make us reconsider our lives from private spheres all the way to fundamental humanistic issues. The internationally acclaimed film based on the screenplay by the director Ruben Östlund is brought to you as a theatrical adaptation in a world premiere.

For its 99th season, the Slovak National Theatre Drama will also premiere István Tasnádi’s Academy of Spectator Art (03 November 2018), directed by József Czajlik, and Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s The Physicists (01 June 2019), directed by Jan Klata.
