The Velvet revolution was for the majority of us a breaking point. The play Manifesto of possibilities does not aim to be an objective documentary of what happened. It is a manifesto of various perspectives which the revolution can be reflected upon from.
“The Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 brought about a huge experiment. This experiment has influenced the whole Europe: nations, that previously formed the Eastern block were recreated to fit the Western neoliberal system and obeyed the regime of liberalisation, deregulation and privatisation.” (Philipp Ther: New Order on the Old Continent).
The creation and premiere of the play was supported by public funding through the Slovak Arts Council.
