A Vacation From History is a magical journey unfolding on the border between dream and reality in which the audience – deprived of the usual theatrical ritual and spectator’s distance – takes part with their entire being.The performance Vacation from History by Shadow Casters will be presented to national and international attendants and collaborators of the IETM (International network for contemporary performing arts, Zagreb, October25-28) plenary session on October 26th at 7pm and on October 27th at 11am.

A Vacation from History is also a multimedia theatre performance in which the Shadow Casters re-establish a new synergy with the audience each time it is performed, making each performance unique in content. It  is a meta(physical) comment on Kafka’s work: a travel to the edge of collective and individual consciousness, through the realms of dream and death as the only safe refuges from history. Vacation from History, has been presented by international theater festivals in Croatia and abroad: Zagreb, Pula, Sarajevo, Belgrade, Subotica, Maribor and Cluj and was awarded: Special Jury Prize BITEF 2009, the 2008 “Avaz dragon” Award at the 48th MESS Festival, 2010 “Cloud” Main Award of the 16th Pula International Festival PUF.

Shadow Casters is a non-profit international artistic and production platform for interdisciplinary collaboration, creativity and reflection on inter-media art. Working with public urban space through various art interventions and projects is one of the main areas on which their work is focussed.
