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.

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. This work represents the final stage of a four-year-long trilogy dedicated to Kafka. The journey we are offered in Vacation from History is a passive and serene one, almost melancholic, as it gives space to each of the spectators to see a part of his/her own forgetfulness. The performance has several phases, none of which is fixed, and which are more an instruction to instigate memory or self-reflection than a rounded segment. Vacation from History 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 so far 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.
