Mare Bulc: STUDY FOR THE LAST EGOISTIC PERFORMANCE
An Interpretation regarding the Nature of Theatre
A group of young actors presents an exhibition with reference to the reinterpretation of four events from the project “No History/Know History”. Mare Bulc, who belongs toa younger generation of Slovene theatre directors, conceived this project at the beginning of his studies at the AGRFT in Ljubljana, Slovenia, as an investigatory selfeducation. The performance is intertwined with associations from various events from the history of modern art. At the same time, audiences can discover the intimate investments of the actors, as they put them on display in their theatre-exhibition room.
The inspiration for individual scenes comes from different topics: “theatre education”, “asystem of Art”, “the unbearable weight of the history (of art)” and “sacrifice for Art”. Spectators can decipher and reenact these topics during their “stay” at the performance, where they move from one event to another, from time to timelessness.
