How would you feel if the country where you were born, grew up in and lived in for years ceased to exist?

This cruel, gentle, entertaining, sad, painful and soothing production talks about the ideals which never materialised and memories we cannot bring ourselves to forget. It speaks about genuine beliefs and manipulation, about hate and love, and was created from personal testimonies of its actors: Branka Petrić, Predrag Ejdus, MirjanaKaranović, Anita Mančić, Slobodan Beštić, Goran Jevtić, Radovan Vujović, Milena Vasić, Marko Baćović and Anđelika Simić.

“Essentially, the real hero of this production are our memories and experiences accompanied by a lot of emotions, a touch of melancholy and quite a lot of nostalgia for a country that is no more….” (BLIC)

“One has to be aware of the artistic importance that such a journey of discovery has in our theatrical traditions but also the importance that such an emotional and psychological examination of Yugoslav identity has for us as individuals. (NIN)

“An important and courageous production.” (VREME)
