For more than ten years, Sanja Mitrovic has explored theater’s link with social, political and cultural reality, mixing up performance art, visual arts and dance. Her new show, My Revolution is Better Than Yours, draws upon the 1968 demonstrations as an unprecedented phenomenon of worldwide proportions and their legacy. Delving into archives and accounts from various countries, Sanja Mitrovic works on the gap between the magnitude of shared experience and the historic amnesia that enshrouds those events. Are these revolutionary ideals doomed to fall down the memory hole and their slogans now merely marketing sales pitches, or are they still relevant to today’s experiences? Through a myriad of characters, ideas, images and statements forming a fragmented snapshot of the time, My Revolution is Better Than Yours aims to mirror today’s predicament.
