A four-day festival of unconventional off-stage theater forms. Street theater, site-specific and alternative performances are taking place at space of daily life. The festival is open to the general public free of charge.
The philosophy of this festival is to break the borders of taboos and indifference. The festival is disrupting the life of an ordinary citizen in unexpected places of everyday life, trying to raise questions that must not be ignored. Through the artistic form of a contemporary theatrical performance, we exhibit problems in places where they cannot be overlooked.
