Somewhere Else is a performance with a topic that is usually not easy to speak about. It tells us about a little Girl, who finds herself in the heart of war. Threatening planes are flying over the city, the streets are empty, and there is no food left on the shelves in the store. The school is closed. And every now and then gunshots are heard nearby. Her environment has gradually changed. It became intolerable. The Girl dreams of leaving to the countryside, where she could have a better life. She wants to go somewhere else, far away from the horrors of war. How do the horrors of war look like through children's eyes? Only through this perspective can we fully understand the absurdity of the violence of war and the vulnerability of each individual. Somewhere Else is a deeply moving story about the absurdity of war and its cruelty. Therefore it is quite essential to tell all about it to our youngest viewers. Since the topic of the absurdity of war is quite delicate and painful, it often remains untold. The staging of Somewhere Else will be unusual in its means of expression as well. The actress, and puppeteer in the same person, will create all by herself the environment in which the little Girl is walking around. She will depict with her brushes and paints the hilly landscape, high skyscrapers and the creepy soldiers, increasingly approaching the city. The video projections will absorb the viewer into the heart of an exciting story about the horrors of war, which are - fortunately enough - happening somewhere else. Or may be not?
