    About the performance

    The minute we are born we find ourselves in a situation of being casted, selected, competed against. For a place in the kindergarten, in the most prestigious (or the nearest) school, in the sports team.

    Then there are exams, school competitions, grading scales. Followed by final exams, entrance exams and university exams. Then résumés, CVs and job applications -suffering through anything imaginable, only not to be prematurely retired.

    And not to forget -  it is also very important on which cemetery you are buried.

    On TV, endless competitions: who is to win the million, who will participate in the Big Brother show and become famous, Eurosong contest for adults, Eurosong contests for children (that's right, people have to be sucked in while still very young).

    Miss World! Miss Universe! Tears of joy, tears of disappointment...

    Books of records, minutes of glory...

    To win, to fight through no matter what, to gain advantage over others (by whatever means necessary: tripping others, tricking them, pouring them with acid) - that is the only way to shiny happiness. There are no other ways to achieve it. Only to become a star in the show business. America's Next Top Model, Russia's, Japan's, Austria's. Dancing with the Stars, Figure Skating with the Stars, Circus with the Stars, Shunting with the Stars.

    Stars, stars, stars, how are they keeping up? What are they doing? Who are they living with? The new astronomy. A total peep show...

    Mikhail Bartenev, playwright (Russia)

    About the process:

    At the beginning, there was a wish to create an intercultural production that should be based on the stories, experiences, motives and ideas of the actors from seven different cultures of Europe and Asia. The process started in the ateliers we made in Linz, Austria and Okinawa, Japan in summer 2011. Mikhail Bartenev and Ivica Šimić met in Zagreb in October 2011 to formulate all the ideas and stories in a first draft of the play. In February 2012, all the actors gathered in Okinawa, to start their work, having for the basis this first draft. After three weeks of improvisations, rehearsals and tryouts, through which a lot of intercultural contacts and exchanges was made and explored, huge material was set and organized, and that was a treasure! The work in calm and isolated February Okinawa gave birth to the second draft that Mikhail wrote in June, and which is the basis for the performance SUPERHERO, rehearsed and performed in Seoul, South Korea in summer 2012.

    The form of the story is a reality show. We chose this form not to create a parody, but because it allows actors to show their individuality. It is a reality show, because the process we were creating the play in many ways resembled a reality show (actors involved in the project spend a lot of time together, getting to know each other in the process of working, improvising towards a not entirely clear goal, living together, eating together...). That is one of the reasons why our SUPERHERO performance has the very same form.
