The teachers who led this process, Maja Perovska and Burim Dauti, as well as some of the students who participate in the play, shared with the audience their experiences, challenges faced in the entire process and manners in which they can influence their friends, neighbors, families and communities in the future.

When the play ended, the audience rewarded the young actors with a huge round of applause which once again proved that the creative workshops are a successful tool for interethnic integration in education, and that art is a universal language of the students.
