"He He Helium" is a first choreo-drama about Yugoslavia with an original music score composed by composer Goran Bojčevski (MAK), choreography was made by Igor Kirov (MAK), Mirjana Blažević Lešić (BIH) made a libretto and an artistic advisor was Zoran Lešić(BIH). 

" He he Helium" finds its inspiration in the eponymous poem by young poetess from Sarajevo, Adisa Bašić and it tells a story of a group of passengers on the Orient Express somewhere at the gateway to Europe..... Travelling from east to west, the train stops for no obvious reason at the Slovene-Croatian border. The group of four young people coincidentally meets in a small second class waiting room at the local train station. They come from various places of post-Yugoslavian space, different from each other (and yet similar), each with their own story, permeated by the cultural and historical tradition of their places.
