About the performance
We don’t meet it often. But somewhere between the layers of our society, there is Life, very different from our own. A universe within universe, eschewing our understanding. We’re not used to seeing it every day. Just like we’re used to the perfection of the image. From all sides of public life, it enwraps us into its net of attraction. From television screens, adverts and personal profiles on social media. With pop songs, the spectacle reaches its peak. The expected lines of vision, movements, colours. Covered freckles, ironed creases. The non-existent – all that we don’t want to see. Or pretend it doesn’t exist. Or we don’t see the point of. Only that. Perhaps this is all that it’s about.
But what happens if that unique universe steps in front of a television screen? If one reality blends with another and stars mix? What lines do we draw between the stars? Will we discern the shape of the constellation in them – their meaning? Will we hear what it tells us, even if it hasn’t been tamed into a perfect image with which we’re familiar, one with carefully rehearsed moves and words?
Will we be able to hear the story?
The performance will be followed by the closing ceremony of the 48th Week of Slovenian Drama.
Première: 9 November 2017
