János Regos will speak of the meaning of amateur and alternative independent theatres for Hungarians within an historical perspective. As everywhere else, also in Hungary there are many different kinds of theatre: laboratories, free groups, children and student theatres, theatres in the capital Budapest and in the provincial towns and villages, socially committed theatres, theatres of young people in public care, rom
theatres… Personal links between the amateur and professional directors and actors allow for an exchange between the different environments creating events, projects and festivals. A question for all is where the money comes from.

János Regos is a playwright, director, actor and theatre specialist. From 1979 to 2010 he was artistic director of Szkéné Theatre, Budapest. Besides taking care of the Theatre’s programme with his father Pál Regos, he initiated and organised the International Meetings of Moving Theatres (IMMT) for 15 years. This festival first brought several internationally acclaimed theatre groups to Hungary. In 2006 he was awarded Golden Order of Merit by the President of Hungary and in 2011 he was elected President of the Hungarian Federation of Amateur Theatres and Players, position that he still holds today.
