About the performance
"I don't know, we're only humans and that's it... That's the beginning and the end of everything. You're human, make mistakes and afford it. That's the deal. And that's why it's true if you don't fuck somebody else over, you're fucking over yourself... That's just how it works!"

The show FASBUK ("Ode to theatre") was created as a collective creative process, as a result of attempting to dramatize a text awarded in competition "Vejk AP2!". The setup of actors and director during the rehearsals brought up themes which kept increasing distance to the original text. The actors, later being also co-authors, were confronted with their desire to do theatre reflecting their feelings and the responsibility to interpret the original text. "My Life in Projects", that's how the paraphrase of Stanislavki's "My Life in Art" would appear today according to the authors of FASBUK.

"FASBUK is an original mosaics of mini-stories with intense climaxes. Burgr's directorial concept is built on stout actors' grip on the characters and clear textual message. Viewers can look forward to a generation's statement, almost a confession about ourselves. All of that, despite the harshness of the confession, shown gently and gracefully.'' Hana Rodová, reviewer at KOD - Concretely about theatre
