As a theater director, Tamás Jordán had to wear a muzzle

The former theater director talked to Alinda Veiszer about how politics has entered theatrical life over the past thirty years and how it has had relations with politicians starting from Szombathely.

Jordan said he wore a muzzle as a theater director, thus protecting the theater and its staff. A couple of years ago, when he re-applied for the position of director in Szombathely, and despite not wanting to be the winner, the founding director was the only candidate after András Dér’s resignation, something broke in him.

Tamás Jordán said that it was thanks to Csaba Hende, the Fidesz Member of Parliament of Szombathely, that the theater in Szombathely was built.

In 2010, the city received 1.5 billion forints for the construction of the theater, but according to the local assembly, it wanted to spend this money on someone else, they only stayed with the original plan for Hende’s intercession. Hendet’s relationship deteriorated due to an interview.

In the Iron People newspaper, Jordan named someone as his friend who wanted to run for a parliamentary seat in the same constituency as Hende. Hende grumbled about it in a phone conversation about it, evaluating it as a backlash, despite Jordan telling him there was no intention in it.

The former director of the National Theater is most disturbed by the government’s activities in that he gives only the answer to every question: only.

“When they were kids, I wasn’t allowed to say, just, they always demanded a normal answer. And now they only give such answers without interruption, they have no reason, or I translate what they say into Hungarian only. Why had Paks or the Belgrade railway line had to be encrypted for fifty years? Why was the situation of SZFE not explained? ”
