The third semester of work in DAS is shaped by the continuation of two trajectories from the previous semester. One is focused on examining memory and presence through further work on the SREBRENICA project.

The second phase focuses on personal perception of memory after death - He is already gone. What does a person who is dead have from our memory, when he is already dead, when the memory of us becomes general good?

They are already gone! SREBRENICA 25 years’ after How to stage a genocide? How to use theater to remember - can we use theater to remember the killed ones? Is there PC agenda in that and how to go behind that? In practical: Small things, small steps, small parts. Looking in very practical and very theatrical apparatus questions Key questions/dilemmas: Use my own theatrical poetics to explore ways - how to stage genocide and not to be PC? Using theater situation - facts and features - to create a play.
