Katja Legin, Bojana Robinson: OH HOW VERY ORDINARY
Oh How Very Ordinary is a performance that loosely connects three performers, who each weave their own story in their own medium, somewhere on the border between fiction and fact, intimacy and universality. They each represent a whole for themselves, and yet fragile connections of an evasive atmosphere weave between them. Oh How Very Ordinary is based on the personal stories/fragments/ autobiographical motifs of the dancers and performers Bojana Robinson and Katja Legin, the musician Tomaž Grom, and the short stories of Katherine Mansfield. On stage, the gap opens up between notions of a happy family life and the reality in which individuals are caught between the ideas, expectations and needs of others. We actually enter completely ordinary lives, which, when we take a closer look, are full of interesting phenomena.
