EMŐKE: With a nice breakfast.
TAMÁS: I usually get up at 8 and have a huge breakfast, tune to the Bartók Radio and check my mail. When I have a rehearsal, I try to do it all fast to get there by 10. When there is no rehearsal, I stay at home to work.
TAMÁS: Astrud Gilberto or Duke Ellington.
EMŐKE: Right now, James Hilton’s Lost Horizon.
TAMÁS: Murakami Haruki’s works. All of them. But most recently, I have read Scenes from a Marriage by Ingmar Bergman. I was astounded by that book. I had never read such poignant dialogues before. They were almost unpalatable. I could not read it at one go.
TAMÁS: Any time, anywhere, with great pleasure. I love the Netherlands. I would go there any time.
TAMÁS: More restaurant, less cooking. Our kitchen is tiny.
EMŐKE: Both. Lots of fashion magazines on paper, lots of photo reports online.
TAMÁS: Internet. Basically, only magazines in print, and only for the photos. I just flip them through. It relaxes me a lot, and recharges my batteries.
EMŐKE: Fashion, visual culture, home style, sometimes gossip.
TAMÁS: Színház (Theatre). Men’s Health. National Geographic. Geo.
EMŐKE: Tight pencil skirt up to the weist.
TAMÁS: Right now, a blue checkered shirt.
EMŐKE: Tanga knickers. I find them rather vulgar.
TAMÁS: Well, lots of things. Of course, there is nothing I would not wear on stage. There it depends on who wants me to wear something. But I am not really extreme in everyday life.
here comes the answer
EMŐKE: Szerelem (Love) at the Trafó.
TAMÁS: Szerelem (Love) at the Trafó. I love it. Somehow, we were so lucky to meet in that play that it still has a major effect on our present.
EMŐKE: With Jesus.
TAMÁS: With Andy Warhol, at the Plaza Hotel in New York.
EMŐKE: My husband.
TAMÁS: Árpád Schilling, Kornél Mundruczó and László Najmányi.
EMŐKE: Master at least one foreign language!
TAMÁS: Do not take any advice! So many people try to put you on the ‘right track’, teach you or educate you. However, only you can know clearly what you want. But then you should really know it, and never lose sight of it.
EMŐKE: I only have unfinished projects. I always keep on working on everything. As an actress, you can never take it easy in this sense.
TAMÁS: A lot. Every year we draft four or five projects that eventually do not materialize but are still very important. Somehow they become part of those that do materialize.
