During the weekends in front of Yoyoga park gathers colorful crowd. Vampires and clowns, nurses and punks, witches and weird beasts. Small groups suddenly begin to dance and sing or just shout and then suddenly calm down. The vampire’s victim eagerly poses with the victim of slaughter. The victims of car accident, before the hospital and after it, carefully colored bruises and bites, bandaged noses, arms and legs, beautifully placed blood stains. Very popular is the costume of European servant, with different types of frills and ruches on the skirts and caps in weird combinations for European eye. In this way high school students express their aspiration for being and looking unusually, cool, fashionable, original. They arrive with huge bags and get dressed and do make-up on the place, eat there, show themselves and check out others, and when evening comes they put on regular clothes and leave.

This all looks like a rehearsal, an atmosphere at the backstage, before coming out to the stage. Everyone has chosen the role, put on the costume, entered in his role, but didn’t get on stage. Either they weren’t called or someone didn’t let them, didn’t hear them. Or they arrived too early or too late. And may be, they were preparing themselves for another performance. And all those girls, like Cinderellas, have to hurry up to get home.
