The performance adapts the last miracle of Jesus Christ, before he entered Jerusalem: healing a blind man named Bartimej. The play seeks for its expressive means in music, movement, puppetry, acting, singing, utilizing various materials, and it strives to harmonize them within a single style.

An intimate performance  with a moral to its story, but also with some relief and erotica, which drew its inspiration from the old Peep Shows and the first motion pictures experiences made in the 19th century. We will take you on a discovery of what really happened in the Eden.)

This performance is a survey on verbal and non-verbal violence (from day-to-day to extremely violent acts manifesting gender-related domestic abuse, to structural (institutionalized) violence that surpasses acting, thinking, and feeling of people in every society).
The play was produced by the Slovak theatre studio T.W.I.G.A. (Theater Women Improvisation Gender Action) that is dedicated to portraying gender-related issues of both female and male experience. It is a follow up of the www.ruzovyamodrysvet.sk project.

In 2013, it received the FIFTH WOMAN award in the ART category for its long-term activity in the fight against women-oriented violence. Iveta Škripková was awarded the The Premium of the Slovak Literary Fund for dramaturgy at implementation of the Thesaurus of Sexism project, which also gave rise to the production of Diagnosis: word.
