Directed by video artist Hajnal Németh and with music composed by Dóra Halas, Soharóza presented an adaptation of the Tiszaeszlár Affair, a case of blood libel closed in 1883, created for the exhibition False Testimony. The expressive and unsettling piece about a young Jewish boy who was intimidated into confession was performed live at the opening of the exhibition, which also showed nonstop the previously recorded video installation of the same topic and musical material.
Soloists: András Meszerics, Bern Atom Santi, Dániel Jankó
