About the performance:
Tišma's novel The Use of Man is a complex story about the tragic fate of people in war, the fate of several families who lived before, during and after the Second World War.
Director about the performance:We are not done with demons and plagues, because they constantly threaten to come out in the form of hatred and intolerance. I am affected by people who are resolute until the end that a catastrophe will not strike and that reason will prevail. Unfortunately, it always proves that these people are in the minority.
Comments on the performance:"Every time social systems change, tragic war and post-war times pass, values are destroyed and new ones are built, a clear decision is sought, to survive or not to survive. The city is the context here and a silent witness, an active agent that at the same time suffers change and changes, emphasizing all the tragedy of the main character."
