Mare Bulc + performers: Gremo vsi!
Monday, August 26th at 9 pm
Stara mestna elektrarna – Elektro Ljubljana
The performance entitled Gremo vsi! (All Together Now!) is an engaged music theatre with a narrative that revolves around whether or not one should stay in Slovenia. It is a contemplation of changes, about the choice between passivity and action. Let’s imagine for a second that a country is a band and that a citizen of that country is a musician, which means that moving from one country to another is like a musician moving from one band to another. Would the music be any different if someone left the band? How can you make the decision for political and economic migration, if you’re tied down to your home by love, comradeship, melody and rhythm? It’s a performance bursting with musical and performing skills and all the charisma of a rock concert. It’s obligatory reading material for a young generation that has its eyes set on the future. However, it’s meant for all generations. We are all thinking about what N’toko says out loud in the performance: “I want to start fresh.” Is it possible?
