Ten Slovak directors and Ten Commandments presented in the non-traditional premises of the Slovak National Theatre. The aim of the project is to present ten approximately twenty minutes long pieces – meditations (disputes, variations) on topics and motifs of the Ten Commandments. They should be influenced by various opinions and perspectives. They should present a statement how one generation of stage directors views the rules that used to define the moral and legislative standards in the Western societies in last 2 000 years.

Ten directors were invited to participate in the project (in one case it is a tandem), who have already been successful both on national and international stages. Except of the mentioned staged pieces, some multi-genre artistic works (outputs) will be created in cooperation with filmmakers, visual artists and writers, using the motifs of the Ten Commandments to initiate and strengthen broader and deeper whole-society discussion on the basic theme of our civilization.
