Hungary Live Festival is the only Hungarian theater festival in New York City. It was established in 2018 as a bi-annual event in order to strengthen the connection between the two nations through their shared cultural experiences. Every second year HLF gives home to the best theater performances, concerts and other live events from Hungary. The Festival also aims to open an ongoing cultural dialogue and inspire artistic influence between the two countries, therefore it hosts workshops, talk backs and panel discussions during the time of the Festival.
