Unusual treatment game the storyline is born directly in the process of testing on the basis intercepted interwievs and scraps, offers the viewer look up productions, directorial concept can be described asavant-garde and abstract , but which carry the idea that reflects disgust the current social situation.... We are all the time in the confrontation with excesses, that we do not analyse and we consider them a direct threat of our steady life´s harmony. What will happen if our lives get to be composed only of excesses? What if we put them one next to the other and they will suddenly become a refrence view of the world? Are we able to live in such an enviroment? Will we begin to try to understand them? Will we try to perceive their primary initiatory point? Performance Dum spiro, spero was created by the method of collective work. All texts used in the performance are actual notes of actual people and therefore we cannot consider them a fiction. This is a performance, whose structure is determined by the real events. However, are we able to live in such a "reality"?
