It seems that so much has been said about exile so far that there is nothing to add, little to find out. Also, many of us have faced it personally, as stories of our families, friends, or people we know. And yet, weaving narrations by different people into the story of one family, the director of the show ‘To Die? I Don’t Believe It’ Jūratė Trimakaitė brings collective memories about exile closer to one and each of us, makes them our own. She invites the audience to look into the deepest corners of their hearts where the most intimate experiences and painful memories hide, and wipe away the dust of time. Little by little one special day of the family is born in front of our eyes.
It is a visual diary where through the means of puppet and object theatre, as well as video projections the fragment of human history is evoked.

Collectif 23h50 is a theatre company founded by artists of different nationalities and cultural background who came together to develop such theatrical language that is based on the visual, the sensual, and combines puppet and object theatre techniques. Having studied together at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts de la Marionnette de Charleville-Mézières, they formed an independent theatre group whose creative principles are based on interdisciplinary quest and search of new forms and dramatic narratives of contemporary theatre.
With their different origins and international nature (they come from France, Lithuania, Brazil, and Russia), they place exchange and sharing at the heart of their artistic work and draw their inspiration from both – classical tradition and issues of contemporary society. Being attentive and observant of the surrounding world as well as fostering dynamic dialogue with the audience, they promote theatre that is poetic as well as powerful, and could be enjoyed by young and old alike.
