Utopian opera “(iz)dzīvot pirmdienu” (“Surviving Monday”), based on true events, tells a story of boundaries in youth relationships, impact on peers and alternative options. How much is really required to ruin a person? Is there a way back? How to go on living if one is to blame?
The events unfold during a PE class, when pupils are most vulnerable and exposed to their inadequacies, or quite the opposite – enjoy showing off with confidence. For an enhanced experience, the performance itself takes place in a gym of a school, utilising props found on set, and upon entrance the audience are required to change for appropriate footwear.
