The founders of of our first Empire – Rastislav vs Svätopluk Faith versus power A controversial historical theme in a non-traditional modern theatre interpretation.

A conflict between two strong personalities, the founders of the Great Moravian Empire from the 9th century: Rastislav and Svätopluka. Rastislav - the visionary who greatly influenced Constantine and Methodius with his peculiar practice pure, sincere, spiritually powerful faith that transforms the world, individuals and nations, even though the majority act like freaks – against Svätopluk as an eternal symbol, a modern pragmatic ruler and the policies that any means necessary may be used for virtuous purposes.

The intransigence of the two concepts of national existence - the idealistic and the pragmatic. Light versus dark, the past versus the present.

Running time: 1 hr 45 mins with no interval
