Ján Šimko: The Last Historical Mission of Young Generation

Theatre performance, opening night on February 5-6, 2010 in S2, Stanica Zilina-Zariecie

Posledna historická úloha mladej generácie

What happens when during a party you learn that somebody was beaten and the revolution has started? Sure, perestroika is on since four years, the regimes in Eastern Europe are falling one after another, first tourists are dismantling Berlin wall and in Czechoslovakia there is also something in the air. But this is politics and life is completely different. Stories of students that who stayed aside during the tense period.

„All the children know that we are pricks, honey / and you still think we are going to get well from that…/ But we are going to be an official culture/ tender rock revolution on the first pages of newspapers/ all the world will shit their pants and they will be pricks like us…/ And then we will sing just about love…” (Lues de Funes: (This is a) Love song)
