In his drama “Wilhelm Tell” Friedrich Schiller addresses personal responsibility as the main trigger of change in society. It is a story about courage- a person's ability to face their fears, the wish to do what is right rather than what is advantageous, to choose the common good over the individual good. What relevance do concepts such as trust and freedom have in a young person's life today, and- are they even possible?
This topic serves as the starting point of a performance in which director Andrejs Jarovojs, together with Agate Bankava, Artūrs Čukurs, Alise Danovska and Emīls Krūmiņš, playfully tries to find answers to these questions. The differences in past personal experiences among the participants as well as their previous work in various performance genres play an important role.
