The theatre group Slzy Janka brings a unique performance exploring the berriers between man and animal.
Can any of us perform any act, even the most horrible, if we find ourselves in a dire situation? Do we start to take advantage of our situation if we have the opportunity to do so? Will we become willing and sadistic bullies?
We invite you to the Bratislava premiere of the first production of the theatre group Slzy Janka Borodáča. Pop Animal is a theatrical study of the boundaries between man and animal. Based on the most famous psychological experiment of the 20th century, it explores the situational influence and pressure exerted on humans by authority, power or the system.
