Márton Hajnal: Back to the U.S.S.R.

"The uniqueness of the performance lies, among others, in Kravchenko’s idiosyncratic viewpoint and his credence, which, while being reasonable and naively romantic at the same time, gradually transforms into a canny rebellion. His awakening is much more general than confine himself to criticizing a bygone system. Zoltán Balázs immerses himself in the presentation of the shock to the fullest twice during the performance: when reciting the first serious fight between Kravchenko and his father; and when Kravchenko escapes the Soviet Union. As such, Balázs practically marks the two major turning points in the story. The transformation is rather elemental. It is the faith of an intelligent and talented person, continuously giving directions to the ever-derailing world.”
