About Réka Szabó
Réka Szabó graduated in mathematics and informatics, meanwhile she fell in love with contemporary dance. Now she is the artistic director of The Symptoms, one of the most significant contemporary dance-theater companies in Hungary. The company recognizes no generic boundaries. They treat everyday problems that occupy all of us, addressing these themes in a deeply personal tone. All of this is wrapped in a vision that is grotesque, self-ironic and poetic at the same time. After directing two experimental short films, The Euphoria of Being is Réka’s first feature-length documentary.
