URBAN RABBITs The 21st class of the National center of circus arts’ graduation show in Budapest.

Directed by Arpad Schilling - Kretakor Company

“How can rabbits possibly tolerate the proximity of human beings passing by along fields,
when the hunting season’s not open?

Cnac entrusted Arpad Schilling with the direction of the 21st class’ show. Striping the stage to a state of complete bareness, the Hungarian director worked in close relationship with the 16 young artists, their art, their personalities, their presence, here and now.

Making these different stories and fragments meet, URBAN RABBITS draws a mosaic portrait of a community with its intriguing beings who do nothing like others… and question the way we live together.
