Interpreter's confession:

Zoltan Butuc is my name. I was born in 1969 when poetry was valued. I fell in love with her, with the music, with the performers, and only then did I do theater. I am confident that I have what it takes to stop the moment for a bit of peace. For soul. The art of telling poetry still challenges me. Now I chose to do it holding a guitar in my hands.
