Actors of the SkRAT theatre shatter the myth of people being divided into hunters and pickers. Images, acts, scenic and textual collages passionately defend a new terminology and a new view on old things, while at the same time they disprove themselves, polemize with themselves, devoure themselves in the search for an answer to the main question of today: Who are buggers? Who are suckers?

Premiere: February 11th, 2011, A4 – Zero Space
Length: 90 min.

The project was supported by Endowment Fund Telekom with Foundation Intenda and Ministry of Culture SR.
