About the speaker
This month our breakfast meets us with the challenging topic of “taboo”.
We invited Neda Sokolovska, an exceptionally brave and non-standard artist, founder of Studio for documentary theatre VOX POPULI, to share with us the ‘verbatim technique’ of acting, the reality as a theatre and the importance of listening.
The topic of the talk is “Taboo and stigmas of the 90s”.
What are the topics from the years of the ‘transition’, which we find hard to talk about and prefer to keep silent? How does this period predefine the development of the current 30-40 year-olds the people who were back then teenagers? How does the verbatim theatre help us overcome the silence, to bring into the light the best kept secrets and to break the taboos?
Parts of the latest performance of VOX POPULI, called “Поколение Ь” will be shown on stage, as part of our discussion.
