The Eighth Day Theatre / Children of the Revolution.
We do not wish for wars. We do not miss the revolution. We live during the most enduring period of peace in Europe, and still, something pushes us towards the abyss of fratricidal conflicts. In our performance, we are trying to look closely at the nature of this phenomenon.
What makes people of today go out into the streets and demonstrate their anger? Is it the same anger which triggered revolutions of the 20th century? Has any of it lived on? We may not feel like the children of the revolution, but the issue is still worth considering. As Ósemki company claims, these are the young people, though unaware of historical processes, who are the main heroes, and they stand on the first front line of every revolution.
The performance, put on stage by Jacek Chmaj, will become a journey through a hundred years, amidst the powerful image of revolution like from Battleship Potemkin by Eisenstein or images resembling Counter-Strike gunfire watched with a detached eye of a fan. It is worth adding that the authors of the performance invited the students of the University of Arts in Osijek to contribute to the show. They have already cooperated within theatrical project Europe, the Home in Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, and Hungary.
The appendix:
Dictatorship should not be installed in order to protect the revolution; revolution is fomented in order to impose the dictatorship. 
G. Orwell, 1984.
