You Didn’t See Anything!

Hungarian premiere as the opening performance of
Roma Heroes - II. International Roma Storytelling Festival
Thursday, 24 May 2018, 8.30 pm, Stúdió K Theatre

“On the 4th of March, 2014, Daniel Dumitrache, 26 years old, died inside Police Station 10 from district 3 in Bucharest. Daniel was an illegal parking man in the Old Center. When he saw the police patrol car he ran away. This is what caught policemen’s attention. They caught him and took him to the police station with no particular reason at all.”

In 2014-2015, Alex Fifea conducted a research on the circumstances of the young man’s death. The play analyses the social processes behind the murder and reconstructs the related dialogues. Testimonies of policemen, opinion of relatives and statements of the media all come to life in this play. Documents and poetry, prose and music help us to learn about police brutality that the members of the most vulnerable communities encounter, showing it through a tragic real-life story.
