A theatre performance by the director Peter Gonda, stage-designer Jitka Pospíšilová, dramaturgist Barbora Námerová and students of acting at the DAMU Theatre academy in Prague taking in brownfield part of Brno – Zbrojovka factory, as part of the Next Wave theatre festival Brno (50 visitors).
„Events taking place during a war that could rage anywhere, staged in fragmented and non-linear form. Freely inspired by the diary of 11 years old girl from Sarajevo – Zlata Filipovičová, which captures the course of the siege of Sarajevo, and a collection text by the Czech journalist Jana Urban. Violence and theater, children games between life and death and apocalyptic romance.“

4AM/MEDIA LAB: Rozprávky o digitálnom podsvetí
Public lecture in Forum 4AM for students of the department of Theory of Interactive Media and wide public interested in freedom and anonymity on internet (60 visitors). The date was postponed from 28. October because of the Public Holiday in CZ.
„Since the early 90ties the vision of Internet has gone through a paradigm shift. From an utopian vision of a „new home of the Mind“ its perception developed into the idea of an enviroment of control, whose participants volutarily fill-up the databases of secret services and interational corporations. Thanks to strong cryptography and open-source projects such as Tor, there are still some places, where individuals enact their ideas of radical freedom. During the lecture we are going to walk through one of them, a place called Onionland.“
