Beton Ltd. are a collective of authors: Katarina Stegnar, Primož Bezjak and Branko Jordan. Große Erwartungen|Great Expectations is their sixth performance, second in their so called Geman cycle. They say they always begin a performance from ground zero, but for a performance to emerge from nothing, personal grips are almost always of key importance for them. They do not enter narrations and dilemmas through individual stories alone, but also through personal ones. »We can only legitimately speak about ourselves.« After ecology, transitional/growing up loss of illusions, the impotency of resistance, generational angst, they are now dealing with the topic of great expectations and future. And what are expectations if not projections of present desires? »The desires of a European, white, heterosexual, urban, cosmopolitan, overrepresented generation. But we must not forget: Katarina, Primož, Branko … we were all children once. Slovenian children. Some still are.«
