A story of charitable hands in bad times.
performance length: 56 min
Heartwarming stories told right away, stories maybe about the the utmost toll having been taken - remembrances of good people in bad times, the question remains clear - where does evil come from? And why?

Performance is part of the Malá inventura 2017 festival.

Without vision - radio play/ without sound - pictures from 1919 – 1945.

An intimate performance From little Maggie to Magda is based on a true story and on a literary source, on the radio broadcasting onsets and black-and-white movie origins, all of which is narrated by theatre of objects, creative theatre and physical theatre addressing the era from 1919 until the spring of 1945. This era that has been tense not only as far as Czech history is concerned, is recalled by pictures, shadows, plays and playfullness, metaphors. The storyline is arranged along the story of a baby girl, her family, neighbours and strangers of different religions whose charitable hands accompany her along her journey through the war.

What does the evil in us stem from, when everybody including the evil people is born as an ordinary baby.

Like me.

Where did this act allowing them to commit murder just because somebody regarded them as this or that come from.

Why? Ma? Gimme your hand. Where are you?!
