The Szabihíd – Bridge of Freedom Project is a cooperation between Pro Progressione and VALYO – City and River Association.
The Szabihíd – Bridge of Liberty project (Szabihíd comes from the Hungarian nickname of the Liberty Bridge) is organized together by VALYO – City and River Association and Pro Progressione. Our organization is mainly responsible for the bridge’s artistic programme on the 4 weekends when the bridge is open for the public as a shared free space. We put together the events by keeping in mind that the audience of the bridge is the most mixed audience we have ever worked with. We plan the logistics carefully in order to make these events both freshly contemporary but not too abstract to go with the flow of the fiesta-like feeling of the bridge.
In 2019, many programs were organized by Pro Progressione.
Theatre performances, puppet shows and dance performances: Y Csoport – Ledpuppets: The Smallest Ocean, Willany Leó, Dani Varró and his contemporaries (KIMI performance), Ricotta – puppet tale about the friendship – by Napsugár Trömböczky, Folk Tales – by Réka Bölöni, Inspirál Cirkusz Jam, Acroyoga Jam.
Community programs: Holy Mass, Community Breakfast, First Hand About Homlessness – Situational Game, First Hand About Homlessness – Living Library, Improvisation Session with Itt és Most Társulat, Mystery on the Brigde – theatre adventure game.
