Hero 2.0 – The Show of All Shows

Everything they have, everything they have left is them, shoulder by shoulder. Void, light and two actors. Heroes. Both are main characters. Both are fighting for their place in front of the audience. The means are not in question. No compromise, passing all obstacles to the ultimate creation, masterpiece.

The ultimate performance, now or never!

The title The Ultimate Performance is conceived as a guide to the research. Making a show, that is basically designed to put the actor on the bare stage and use it, until his last drop of sweat. His essence, everything he knows and can do. How do you prove your superiority, your value, your talent? The actor of today must master all the elements and skills of artistic creation more than ever before. He must know everything and that good. Like a modern-day multitasker, an actor is also faced with the fact that he spreads his field of thinking and artistic expression to all sides. In all forms and capabilities. Psychological method acting and text internalization is not enough. Understanding the context of the performance, situation, character is no longer sufficient. Transgressive acts and subversive tactics are not enough. If you do not have this width, time runs over you. Without this, you are the middleweight, the bearer of letters, the crowd.

If you don’t think you’re the best actor, stop acting. If you don’t think you are doing the best performance, don’t do it. If you think that you will not get that application, do not write it. Hero 2.0 speaks exactly about this, it’s not a question of faith, but of the complete and blind belief that Hero 2.0 is The Ultimate Performance.
