RootlessRoot Company - UNA (Unknown Negative Activity) - June 10 & 11 / 20:00


A"shouting opera in movement" that combines singing, speech, dance and live music in a performance inspired by Theodeor Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber, who tried to fight against what he saw as the “evils of industrial society”.

The main inspiration and point of departure for the creation of the staging of UNA was Theodore Kaczynski, alias the Unabomber. According to his manifesto entitled Industrial Society and its Future, humanity must return to a simpler way of life.

The “shouting opera in movement” is a hybrid that combines various elements of interpretive art into the form of a dysfunctional language, which differs from common use. Song, speech, dance and live music are translated into psychological gestures, seemingly chaotically incorporated into an exaggerated language able to express the complex world of lonely people in the increasingly complex modern era. The libretto is based on the text of Theodor Kaczynsky’s manifesto, newspaper articles about his activities and records from his trial, as well as texts from books dealing with violence and human behaviour.

Music: Vasilis Mantzoukis 
Text: Jozef Fruček
