Shift#18: Liberté, égalité, fraternité

Conceived by Sara Horžen
Scenography: Olja Grubić

When society is burdened with a lot of restlessness and complicated rules, when we have strayed or are looking for the right path, inequalities, divisions and abuses of power are the worst enemy of justice. The law of the strongest prevails, the weakest are the cannon fodder to achieve the goals of the elites.

To establish order, reduce conflicts, enable the collaboration of a herd, dogs form their own social structure. The relations between them are regulated by a hierarchy. Who is the alpha, who is the beta, who is the gamma, and who is the delta under equal circumstances on the theater stage? Freedom, equality, brotherhood or death! What will we witness?



In 2021 the Shift will focus on systemic gaps in the field of human rights and freedoms written in the Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia: “In Slovenia everyone shall be guaranteed equal human rights and fundamental freedoms irrespective of national origin, race, sex, language, religion, political, or other conviction, material standing, birth, education, social status, disability, or any other personal circumstance. All are equal before the law.” (Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia, Article 14).

Shift is a performative format that detects systemic gaps in the field of health, knowledge, work and law in the period 2018-2021. Shift does not invent. Shift is evidence of evident. Shift performs with those for whom it performs. Shift is interested in the potential of everyday life.
