The Iron Courtain in former communistic Czechoslovakia meant until 1989 unbreakable barrier. People who tried to trespass the border were killed on the place or arrested and put in the jail for many years like political enemies. Border zone, where access was strictly denied, has been in many places wide up to 7 kilometers. However, few brave people, with all their ingeniousness and resourcefulness has successfully trespassed the border without being revealed. Performance of Juraj Starovecký is taking place directly in former "forbidden zone" in czecho-austrian border near town Slavonice.
