The Festival audience will have the opportunity to see the play at the 69th Dubrovnik Summer Festival.

Collective, the dramaturge Goran Ferčec, the visual artist Marko Tadić, and the Austrian composers Helge Hinteregger and Radu Malfatti.
The project will include a symposium entitled Turn (Okret), featuring the renowned dance theorist Ramsay Burt, the dramaturge and philosopher Bojana Cvejić, and the Swedish theatre director Anders Paulin, which will take place at the Croatian National Theatre of Zagreb tone studio on 16 and 17 June 2017.
The BADco. Collaborative Performance Collective debuted at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival last year with its The Stranger project on the Revelin Fort Terrace. The artistic core of the collective includes Ivana Ivković, Ana Kreitmeyer, Tomislav Medak, Goran Sergej Pristaš, Nikolina Pristaš and Zrinka Užbinec. From its foundation in 2000, the BADco. has focused on the protocols of research, performing, presenting and observing, by structuring its projects around diverse form- and perception-wise relations and contexts. Owing to its reconfiguring of established relations between performance and audience, exploring the given perspective and performance architectonics, and problematizing of communication structures, the BADco. has established itself as an internationally important artistic phenomenon offering a unique performing experience. Goran Sergej Pristaš is a dramaturge and associate professor at the University of Zagreb's Academy of Dramatic Art. He is a co-founder and member of the BADco., and president of the Founding Board of the University of Zagreb's Art Research Centre.
