The project researches the specific influence of fairy-tales on the growing-up processes and creation of consciousness and behaviour of the adults. It explores the influence of the phenomenon of on the society and socia structure we live in as well as its particular influence on the life and acceptance of differences of disabled persons and other marginalised groups, the perception of the altered and acceptance of the concept of a hierarchical society and system and eventually, the world we live in. The research is divided into several units and topics, such as fairy-tales and childhood (formation of the image of the world), the role of fairy-tales in the definition of evil (defining evil and abuse), meeting a fairy-tale in adult life (e.g. American dream and media), when fairy-tales fall silent – fairy-tales in life (cruelty in real world), the effect of fairy-tales (influence on mechanisms and systems in real life). The participants in the project and the workshop are members of ERGstatus and young participants in the future performance, who will work in groups defining different concepts and forms as the basic material for the future production. This material will be defined and presented in the form of installation or different performative practices.

After the perofrmance ASSITEJ dialogues – discussion between young theatre theorists and critics and the audience.
