Lucia Nimcová & David Petráš: Strasty

Premiered at the NEXT festival in Bratislava (October 2022)

“Strasty” is a performative reportage based on field notes collected during the last months in the Carpathian mountains. Since February 24th, Lucia Nimcová and David Petráš have been documenting the war away from the frontline, where people fight through songs, prayers, and humor. While the flow of information is focused mainly on the battle zone, sharing personal stories and knowledge of the people is now more urgent than ever.
