The purpose of the bedtime story broadcast is to close up the activities of the day and prepare the soul for the nighttime rest. Thus the bedtime story needs to be poetic, not adventurous. It should not contain a complex narrative or deeply troubling motives. Let there be a teasing attraction but at the same time it has to support peaceful sleeping thus can not be too stimulating. And besides all the most important function is to steer the taste and the socialist education of the viewer to the right direction. We are travelling East with the show tonight. Enjoy it and do not forget: there is no sun without Sugár*! (*meaning Sunbeam, which was the name of a socialist shopping center)

The performance is realized in the frame of Tampere University’s project Re-Connect / Re-Collect - Crossing the Divides through Memories of Cold War Childhood, inspired by the collected memories. This international and interdisciplinary research analyzes memories of diverse childhood experiences from post socialist and Cold War countries; and tries to build bridges between academic research and arts through the representations of these personal stories. It aims to establish dialogues among people divided by multiple borders – geopolitical, economic, generational and cultural - and which borders, albeit in a different form, are still there today.
