Accident at school. A group of students tie up and abuse their classmate. The versions of those involved vary greatly.
The play by the Romanian author Mihaela Michailov aims to take the documentary story from the daily news stream and to analyse it. Through highlighted theatricality, it restores the girl’s path to the accident and tries to elucidate the underlying causes that triggered it. Irony and humour are not missing in this game of Mind and Imagination – they help us think better.
The performance focuses on the question „What is it in human nature that provokes violence?“ and the belief that if there is a Dialogue between a Pupil, Teacher, and Parent, perhaps we will be able to correct our views and behaviour so that we can become better people.
