„They’re Not All Heroes” is a strongly experiential performance that challenges the audience to question their own roots and emotional nurture. Starting from a dialogue with their late grandfathers, the artists seek answers to questions like: what does it mean to integrate your personal past or to re-integrate a past that you knew through media or official history? Where is the border between collective and personal subconscious?
The show addresses issues like freedom of speech, fighting censorship and resistance in totalitarian regimes. Personal interpretations mix with powerful images from the collective memory and create a bridge between subjectivity and objectivity.
