The drama of the Spanish playwright Calderon de la Barca was written in the 17th century, but it still worries artists due to the sharp plot and the "eternal" themes raised in the work: justice, dignity and freedom.

The main character Sechismundo, imprisoned since birth, lives in a world of dreams and does not know where reality is and where fiction. This double plane – fiction and reality – raises existential questions. Where does responsibility extend? Where is the limit of our freedom? What line separates justice from mercy, and the prudence of a ruler from tyranny, when he clings to power for the supposed common good? When is the uprising of the people against oppression just? These and other questions appear before the audience on stage, and the participants of the Spanish-Ukrainian art project provide answers during the dramatic action, taking into account their personal and civic views.

Active persons and performers:
Basilio - Oleg Zamyatin
Sekhismundo - Volodymyr Mishukov Rosuara
