Debora Štysová, Tinka Avramova: 30 DAYS

At a time when traveling was fashionable, rather than embracing this new sense of internationalism, we were building policies against immigrants and those who wish to enter. Now that the borders have closed, we can reflect on how open they actually have been.

What does a foreigner have to overcome before obtaining a residence permit in the Czech Republic? What was he looking for when he came? How many papers has he already sent it?

Using paper as a symbol of bureaucracy, we extend the arm of a state that has lost touch in fingers.We're balancing on the edge of real and fictional absurdity.

You can keep your ticket, but we do require a completed form. After the performance you can move around freely and discuss what you’ve experienced.
