ABOUT THE PLAY

Boundary between dystopia and utopia can be dreadfully thin. That fact will become common to someone who tries to imagine perfect society, but only if he doesn’t comprehend that both utopia and dystopia are restrained and losing the courage to move on into further quest. Still, beside all the urges that fight for power in ourselves, it is with instinct to imagine better society, that is the hardest to deal with.

Play The Stamp is performed in the yard of Ethnographic Museum on the Island of Veliki Brijun. Former Villa Pava was built by Venetians in 16th century. These surroundings with its distinctive layout gave us the opportunity to build the new world. With minimal conceptual intervention in space, we were provided with an ancient layout of circle with central stone table, actually an altar where one stamp decides on one person’s fate; the navel of decision-making, according to totalitarian atmosphere of the regime written into play The Stamp.

Different periods clash – history and future, existent regimes and ours; fictional one; historical personalities with our newly built order.
