About the performance

Milan Nešković, director: I believe every society has the government it deserves. Power structures are certainly the reflection of the society. I also believe that everything people do, they do for self-promotion. Everything is marketing. Maks Krnec is not led by conviction. The idea of dissent – to oppose the government, has been destroyed. Only verbal opposition still exists. Usually for personal gain. Maks Krnec tries to convince himself that all his acts are for the benefit of the community and are thus important. The injustice he suffered is truly painful, but it is for personal reasons only. Kantor destroyed his father. He destroyed his life, he destroyed any possibility for him to become important, to study, to earn money. Personal reasons hide behind the common good.

In today’s world there is no empathy, an individual is self-focused. We live in the world of hypocrisy, as we hide the need for revenge, but we hide it because it’s petty if this need is ours and personal. We masquerade revenge as the common good or general censorship.
