Shhhhh!!! Just a slapstick comedy in which the audience is the stage partner.

The audience and the actor work together, merging like two drops of dew, so the only sounds are the laughter of the audience and their applause.
Svejk – The show is based on the dramatization made by the director Alexandru Dabija, inspired by the book written by Jaroslav Hašek – Adventures of the brave soldier Svejk (translation by Jean Grosu).
