The biorobot is a woman or a man, together or separately, who fights day by day with his own inherited automatisms, the pressure of global trends and expectations of our tight Transylvanian society. The biorobots sit at the large family gatherings, at the school performances for Mother’s Day, at graduation meetings; they go to the gym or to yoga class to keep themselves in shape, struggle in the kitchen with stuffed-cabbage or bio-vegan-paleo recipes from the internet, go to the rock legends’ concerts together with their family, spread rumor with the neighbor at the corner of the house and they have opinion about everything.
There are those who are constantly searching for themselves, there are those who rebel, who do not tie an apron during cooking, work eight hours a day, feed the family, and stress but only as much as it is still healthy.
Their life situations are familiar to all of us, and are even so embedded in our lives, that we may even no longer notice them. In turn we could have a good laugh at them, unless our throats get stuck meanwhile.
Botházi Mária’s short feuilletons also stand out as stage monologues. In the performance of Bartha Boróka and Tamás Boglár they draw a pattern in which any of us can recognize our own lives.
