Winner 2012 Viewer's Prize - Best Small Stage Performance - Lithuania Theatre Festival

„Those  who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it.“ (George Santayna)

Interwar and postwar events related these life stories, which affected everyone personally. The actors of theatre laboratory render the stories using „creative fundamentals of Open Circle“.

Using theatrical language. Through oneself – about the others. About the past living today, but thinking about the future.
