Don Juan

Since the birth of Don Juan’s character, the social meaning and judgement of the concept of family, love marriage and sexuality have undergone some radical changes. However, the basic necessities of man and woman are the same forever and one can have a personality as extreme as Don Juan’s, regardless of time.

Don Juan is of all extremity, he is sentimental while in the next moment you find him ruthless. He is gentle till the point of getting the object of his desire, otherwise he is a cruel person. He is self-conceited and narcissistic but assiduous, heroic and confident at the same time. One can wonder whether this character attracts women so fatally. Or maybe is it the image of desire existing in women that triggers the revival of the Don Juan-character in men?

Today’s man knows too much about the insolubility of his role. On one hand, the prosaic dullness, repetition and monotony of marriage turn him off, on the other hand so do the erotic repetition and repulsion arising from the monotony of sexual acts. There is no way out of this ambiguous situation. No winner life strategy exists. As for Don Juan, only one woman belongs to a man, she forces men into the role of eternal and irredeemable liars and places women in a drastically vulnerable position.

One needs pleasure and if they break the norms because of this from one era to another, they will feel a sense of guilt. However, a Don Juan character does not recognize the consequences, he is only driven by living and enjoying the pleasures in the moment. He lives for today. He does not feel guilty at all.

 

The Four Seasons - Feminizma

A sort of symbolic parallel can be drawn between the passing of the seasons from spring to winter and the development of human life. This is not the first time when the creators are inspired by this parallel, however; in this case it is the intense female focus that makes this journey special for which Kriszta Tereskova Nagy’s “Feminizma” serves as guidance.

The girl who is still a child approaches the opposite sex timidly: their world is a mystery to her. In fact, she is not allowed into this world, no matter whether she is related to someone. She constantly experiences that the world of men is a very difficult and closed circle from which women are excluded from the beginning. This strong-willed woman faces the situation that no matter how hard she tries to stand her ground – in a way that is “worthy of a man” – she does not deserve any attention, unless she “uses” her body and womanhood. She attempts to use this weapon to break through the “glass ceiling” which invisibly stretches out between the two sexes and blocks her way from getting ahead. When gaining power, however; despite the success and the bloody victory, she remains alone with herself and with her inner child. Finally she dances away her most beautiful dance with Death.
