About the show: A village surrounded by stone and rubble. Humidity prevails and drops of sweat pour down faces. The river Glibuša is not enough to cool hotheads and move firm attitudes. A child wishes to be free. She wants to climb a tree, to swim across Glibuša, to ride a horse, to fight with boys. All she hears is scolding: “You are not a boy. You are not allowed to run, you will fall and disfigure your face. Boys are allowed to eat as much as they want but you have to be thin and slender… “And instead of searching for freedom in movement, Srna found freedom in accidental death, caused by a story of an unfortunate woman, lame Sava. Her accidental words “If you walk under the rainbow, you will become a boy!” gave the child freedom in death. Or did they? Who of the narrow-minded and stiff villagers was “guilty” because the child found freedom in death, without even knowing? The story about remorse is told by Sava who is the only one left alive and not free, or perhaps free… This is a puppet show about remorse, forgiveness and the desire for freedom. The question is whether stone cold characters, born among stone and carved into stone can experience freedom.
