What does Badarság actually mean?
Badarság is a Hungarian word with a meaning similar to “nonsense”. But nonsense with the naiveity and playfulness of a child. Badarság is something only a pure, innocently ignorant, intact mind is capable of coming up with. It is something which makes no sense, but has so much charm, that it almost makes more sense than anything else.
The language of children is a magical world, where it is not essential to verbally understand each other in order to have a conversation, and where the meaning of certain words is a secret, that no outsider can ever truly understand. Therefore ,the title of the piece, “Badarság” will not be translated to other languages. Ways to give meaning to it will be searched within the piece, so intentionally the piece will give meaning to the title, rather than the other way around.
