The Victory Day

The street is seething. The sound of rebellion thunders. Wafts of mist on the stage. The noise of alarm horns. A remote-controlled police car races by, a small helicopter hums, going up and down: the day of victory? Willy Prager, Iva Sveshtarova and Jee-Ae Lim seize the theatre both as insurgents and as entertainers. However, they don’t re-enact the revolution but break it down into its component parts, into gestures, slogans, poses – like a performative machinery of signs and symbols of protest. The question is whether the signs and symbols of a revolution will transfer from the stage to the auditorium and which emotions ranging from enthusiasm to disappointment will be triggered there.
