ERROR ’10 – a festival of homeless theatres – was held on December 3 and 4 in the premises of Štúdio 12 at the Theatre Institute in Jakubovo Square in Bratislava. The 4th year of this international festival of plays performed by homeless and handicapped people consisted of eight theatre groups from Visegrad Group countries – Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia – and also a special guest from India.

Miroslav Zwiefelhofer from Štúdio 12 told the SITA newswire that three Czech theatres accepted this year’s invitation: Ježek a Čížek theatre with their play The Experts, the Dryada theatre with their performance of Dr. Haniball and Neslyším theatre with its drama Vizualizace literárního žánru (Visualisation of Literary Genres).

From Hungary the AHA theatre presented the drama Of Mice and Men (O myšiach a ľuďoch). Poland was represented by Teatr Grodzki with its performance of Hľadanie si práce (Looking for a Job) featuring people with impaired hearing. The host of the event was Slovakia’s Divadlo bez domova (Theatre Without Home) offering its play Kuca paca.

Visitors also enjoyed the performance Sea Maidens (Morské paničky) by the Slovak theatre Len Tak Tak in which physically handicapped people danced. The special guest from India was Sanal, an actor.

Zwiefelhofer said the festival creates space where theatre groups working with homeless or handicapped groups of people can present their original works to a wide audience.

“The goal of the festival is to change the public’s view concerning people without homes and this is an alternative which balances the mainstream consumption-oriented culture,” Zwiefelhofer stated.
