Klovnbuf Festival: Za Crknt: Our Beloved Alter Idiots
The show is improvised by a set up of a variety of clown personalities, that were popping out from our clowns as their alter idiots who could not resist to stay unexpressed anymore. Klausy, the alter producer, is trying desperately to introduce the show, actors and theatre finances, while Edina Živa Diva with the alter name of Josipa Divac is trying with perseverance to conquer the stage with her omnipresence. Member of EU Parliament is jumping in with his high alter opinion about how to entertain the public. Beloved administrator in the meanwhile is unsuccessfully solving all the papers, when well, Tereza just comes to sell some bio eggs.
Performance is improvising its spaces and relation between alter idiots. The agenda of the numbers stays open. Alter idiots are so persistent in not giving up that most of them are usually removed from the stage physically – especially Marina with her synthesizer and collection of cheesy songs.
Years ago, a group of professional clowns decided to create the Za crknt cabaret (Cabaret To Die For) in order to be able to research and develop contemporary clowning in all its dimensions and to bring it closer to adult audiences. They later formalized their activity in the association Društvo za sodobno klovnsko umetnost. Rather than to a traditional circus, they offer a hand to life. Contemporary clowns break the fourth wall with humour and connect with people through their devoted play. With their naive and direct approach to today’s current topics, they address the audience members who took off their working clothes and remembered that they were human.
The show is in Slovene and English.
