The performance opens questions of responsibility of an individual in contemporary society of recession, shock, precariousness, uncertainty and indifference. What is an act that can do the change? Is democracy just an empty ritual of endless dialogues, which lead nowhere? Who is going to take responsibility to act? To go all the way? Is the violence the only solution?
Performance unfolds this question in combination of documentary and fiction approach. Who is next? is composed of film, music, choreography and creates
a field where many players and many names take place to negotiate about doing action. Spectators included. There is no doubt that something has to be done, urgently. The questions are what should be done and who is going to do it? Can we do something in the theatre? Is theatre the place of action?
