Mala Kline: Eden

Sunday, August 25th at 8 pm
Stara mestna elektrarna – Elektro Ljubljana

In the transitional space between here and now
The solo performance Eden by the choreographer and performer Mala Kline gives birth to two worlds, arising at the exact moment when the performer and the audience meet face to face. The first of these worlds takes place on stage, in the present time, in the here and now. The second one is timeless, inhabiting the interior of bodies, in the abyss where the subconscious and memories reside. In this sensitive performance, with the sharpness of a razor, the author moves between the two worlds. She transforms collective dreamlike images into intimacy, transforms tamed homeliness into a wild animal. She inhabits diverse characters and emotional states while guiding the audience towards an authentic theatre experience. She is a superb actress, funny, emotive, multilayered. The poetics of the performance encourages the imagination and forms a complete and perfectionist arena of sound, light, rhythm and silence, revealing a breathtaking ability of communication with the audience’s senses and mind.
