ESZTER BALINT: I HATE MEMORY
Songs and original concept by Eszter Balint & Stew
Directed by Lucy Sexton

The architecture of I HATE MEMORY is a set of songs tracing Balint’s journey from communist Hungary to ’70s-80s NYC by way of her parents’ radical theater group and winding its way through a Lower East Side mofongo of glamour, poverty, sex, drugs, darkness and—yes—light. The show digs fearlessly into oppression, freedom, the possibilities in chaos, the dreams and lost dreams of America, and the battles with memory when you are most invested in the now.
