DESPITE its uncertain future, Bratislava's Stoka Theatre will stage a performance, in English, of a piece entitled Commission on September 22. The work was created through a collective process during 2001 and 2002.

The story concerns an unnamed man and woman in different situations and environments. On September 24 at 19:30, the troupe will take the performance to Vienna, within the Open Art Space of the Esteplatz festival at Rahmenmanufaktur & Galerie.

The Stoka Theatre is located at Pribinova 1, the area where international development company Ballymore Properties plans to start works on the Eurovea centre next summer.

Recently the Respekt company, which owns Stoka's premises, said it would allow the theatre to stay until next April and promised it help in its search for a new location.
