meet in an indefinite place and at an indefinite time. The stand around,
considering possibilities. They are at a border. Nobody sent them here, they
just found themselves here. They are definitely adult, their future is ahead of
them – they can now in any direction toward their future. Borders_92 is about internal struggles, dilemmas and the questions
related to taking the first step. In a mosaic of opinions, resolutions and attempts
at self-identification, the performers touch upon vital themes of their future
destiny. Should they stay in Slovakia, remain in the field they studied,
continue the relationships they started? Or should they leave, go elsewhere,
burn all bridges?

A newly established group of young theatre
artists Alžbeta Vrzgula, Peter Galdík and Jakub Szatinský who – after
graduating from the Academy of Performing Arts – decided to found a platform
that would allow them to present mostly devised productions focusing on the
examination of their own generational attitudes. However, they do not like the
word “generation” and they admit that it might not even exist. But if it does,
what is the shared life feeling of the first clearly adult generation of the
children in Slovakia and what determines this feeling? Borders_92 is the group’s pilot project and thus the first attempt
at answering these questions.
