Working with material including interviews to residents of the Bosnian city of Mostar, photos, video, self-reflections the group of authors decided to represent it in the style of “liquid television”, in this case “liquid theater” at which fabric of the performance develops of constantly changing short or very short fragments – dialogues, video inserts, etudes, parodies, stand up shows, interactive with the audience, PowerPoint-presentations. According to the traditions of liquid television the liquid performance appeared to be, actually, without the beginning – it began before the audience entered the hall, and without the end – the performance finished with the open final. When digging in daily occurrence, actors looked for identifications, collective unconscious of residents of this post-war city. It appears that it can be done avoiding historical, political, economic metanarrative and global subjects. The analysis of daily occurrence became the key of understanding of the city.
The performance is created in partnership from Teatar Mladih (Mostar) within the Korzo Festival in the frame of the residence of the East European Performing Arts Platform.
