to receive the access lin. The e-mail you ask for the access link must be the same with the one you are accessing ZOOM. The public will remain anonymous – they will be able to see the actress but she wont be able to see them. Communication during the performance will be done in an alternate way. We wont live stream the performance on Facebook or YouTube because we firmly desire to uphold the intimacy of the performance and the possibility of the public to be part of the performance area.

An actress, Olga Török, plays Nina, the young woman from Chekhov's drama, who is she herself an actress too. Nina, who brings to light her painful experiences, and, at the same time, is confident about future, raises questions which Olga wants answered.  What does acting mean anymore if the theater goes online and the performance hall becomes empty? How can you mentally overcome the „social distancing”? How does the public perceive a performance where there is no real interaction between themselves and the actor?  Nina tells the story and Olga asks the questions. Or is it the other way around? Does Nina ask the questions, while Olga and the public seek for answers? The public is invited to conversate with Nina and Olga in this interactive performance.
