ALMA AND BRUTUS consists of two etudes about the life of a dog, two stories with different finales narrated on behalf of two dogs. One saw the Holocaust, the other survived the Chernobyl disaster. The etudes are performed simultaneously on two different locations: one part of the audience watch BRUTUS while the other half watch ALMA; then they change places. As a result they see, as it were, two different performances on the same subject – about terrible cataclysms that anyone may experience, but where not everyone can remain himself, whether dog or man.
