About the performance
Holidays, the annual target, a piece of carefree time when we can dedicate to oneself and loved ones. And planning … all the rest of the year is passing quietly in forging plans. And if through a year there were not so nice, definitely it would be better on holidays. Then everything will be easier, then we will have the time, then no one will worry us, then we can dedicate to one another. Only a little, only today, just to clean a shirt, then to the better place. Then it will be better.
Preparation for a family holiday, which is reserved for leisurely and enjoyable way of spending free time, changes into awkward revelation of mutual relations and mutual accusations. Coexistence from the self-interest, mutual alienation of family members, denial of actual problems, inability to address them, achieving virtual ideals which society demands, adultery, staying with the burden of self … They will realize their position? They will find the will and the power to change?
The performance lasts 50 minutes.
