Fight for survival not only in a movie

Fight for survival not only in a movie

Foto ReutersI worked at the baggage control at the airport. It was a nice life. I spent lots of time with my family, we owned house and also two cars. Suddenly the soldiers came to my job. They wanted me to join the army. They would slit my throat if I said no. They threatened me. Plus there is the fact that military service is compulsory in Syria. If they had not killed me, they would have locked me up, which is maybe much more worse.“

Amateur? No problem. Welcome on the stage!

Amateur? No problem. Welcome on the stage!

Kateřina Milatová, twenty-year-old amateur actress, singer and student of English, looks happy when she is talking about theatre “I'm not a liar if I say that my personal experiences and feelings are mostly positive, I can say that I've been playing the theatre for a long time and I'm glad for it. The thing which I really appreciate is that I can see the backstage or in general the background of each drama.” It is interesting, there are so many people who have to cooperate - technicians, lighting electricians, wardrobe mistress, sound engineer, prompter and of course a director, people who are not visible but who fundamentally influence the play.
