“The idea for this performance originated from my master classes at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, Serbia, in early 2016, when I was working with the students of acting in the class of Prof. Boris Isaković. We worked on the theatrical portraits of several people who gave their lives for their ideas. I asked the actors who are all in their early 20s: “What would you give your life for?“ When we exclude the family that most people would sacrifice their lives for, the question remains whether is there any idea or project for which we would give our lives for?
The young actors were confused at first. Some gave the ideological answers but on the second thought some or them expressed rather nihilistic views. That’s how it began this extremely exciting process in which we considered ideas, philosophies, beliefs and politics behind someone’s readiness to sacrifice his/her own life for. In a parallel process we also investigated the new theatrical forms since I believe that the new age requires the new theatrical expressions too.
