Viktorija Ilioska, Kliment Poposki & Tanja Ribarska (MK): The Cause of Disease
In Budatoren they start the final step in the creation of The Cause of Disease. After their work in Zagreb, they gather all elements to finalise and finish this performance on ‘restrictions and constraints’.
Their young homeland Macedonia gets flooded with laws and regulations that might help to construct a young democracy, but at the same time often become disfunctional for day-to-day life. They are fed up with “Not permitted!” and wonder how a world without restriction would look like…
Without doubt this performance empowers critical thinking!
