George Orwell, Andrej Rozman Roza: ANIMAL FARM

Sunday, September 2nd at 5 pm
Puppet Theatre Ljubljana

We’re all on the same farm
George Orwell wrote the novel Animal Farm back in 1945. The story of the equality of all animals (with some being more equal than others) wasn’t just a critique of totalitarianism, but also testifies to the fact that every leader is nothing but a ‘dirty two-legged swine’ and that while every new authority promises a better future, they merely end up gratifying their own greedy needs and imposing their own ideas. This outstanding duet, comprised of the director Vito Taufer and the writer Andrej Rozman Roza, once again testifies to the fact that a masterpiece classic can be used as an effective mirror of the present times. Suitable for all generations, this puppet performance will lure the audience into humming the melody of the song We are Blacksmiths sung by the animals late into the night. Therefore: »Our eggs he steals, our cows he milks, the juices of our youth he slurps, once more shall we demand what’s ours: rise up, resist, revolt!«
