About the show
In a country without hope, two heroes rose up. They are young, brave and fearless.
No one expected them. No one expected the salvation would be so simple, so sudden, so unusual. Until that moment, we didn’t know that we were waiting right for them. No one expected they will bring a solution, sense, happy end.
Uroš and Vito reflect typical position of a young man, the creator, who is faced with the fact that he is useless to society. However, Vito and Uroš are heroes and are willing to sacrifice everything, their mind, their body, their time, their career, their sexual identity and even their theatrical integrity – in order to prove that is right.
During boyish naiveté and fitness ambition they are proving to us with every breath that we need them and that heroes are not technological surplus, although it appears at first glance that the circumstances in which they could prove themselves don’t exist.

»Hero 1.0, as a performance created as a process, from scratch, from reflection and lots of rehearsal, shows a great acting potential and also reveals a great performative potential of its protagonists.«
