Bread and games … or just continue … Let us rejoice…
Opernball is a metaphor for a closed system, a society that confines to a special hierarchy and special values. It is a critique of the neo-liberal approach applied to anything without distinction. What does it mean to be / work / be / form outside or in a system? What / Who is in? The existential fear of finding oneself outside a system of support. Creation versus basic necessities of life – is art something society needs or is art only a means of fun?

The project was developed with the support of Ministry of Culture, the Center Choreographic Development SE.S.TA in Zdar, the Literary Fund, Balassi Institute in Bratislava and A4 – Space for Contemporary Culture.
