about the production

lt is a vivacious avant-garde performance. The stagers intentionally problematized the message of the work. Each character has his/her own truth. Each of them is a seagull – they are seagulls all together. The staging attacks both intellect and emotions, offers a colourful show where each colour has its precise meaning and where all the meanings are deduced to the final statement statement: „Everybody loves the one who loves someone else.“
