In Friedrich Schiller's poem “Song of the Bell” (“Das Lied von der Glocke”), written in 1798, Schiller describes a long and complicated process of bellfounding – starting with finding the right clay to make a form, casting the bell and, finally, christening the bell and its first tolling. VIVOS VOCO! (I CALL THE LIVING!) – a part of an epigraph from this poem has inspired us to look at theatre from a different angle – to present it as not only a form of art, but as a certain life storage, a communal place. Theatre festival is a calling of the living, a test tolling of the bell.
