Wonderful Gladiators

Varázslatos Gladiátorok

Directing: Zsófi Kabarcz


Film about Baltazar Theatre, the unique professional theatre company in Hungary, whose members are mentally challenged actors and actresses. The Baltazar Theatre association was founded by Dóra Elek in 1998, inspired by the Belgian Théatre du Plantin (founded in 1983), which also works with mentally deficient actors. The actors practice eight hours a day and receive art training as well. That is how the theater makes it possible for the challenged youth to live from their talents, as they get paid for their work. Dóra Elek and her company does a pioneer task by being the only ones in Hungary to place art before handicap. The Hungarian association achieves international acknowledgements and accomplishments.
