Marko Bulc is a Slovene theatre director. The driving force of his work is exploring ever new territories, ever new fields of self challenge: apart from his directing work, he is also a playwright, actor, teacher, performer, explorer … 12 years ago, Mladi Levi Festival already hosted his Study for the Last Egoistic Performance. This time, he is returning with The First Altruistic Performance. The participatory mono performance The First Altruistic Performance is an interactive performance, but every participant here feels as comfortable as one feels at guided tours, where the protocol is very precise. During the 8 scenes, Bulc is constantly changing his position, and with it the position of the audience. And just like the cut off legs of the chairs, the audience is constantly losing their ground to the performance – their roles, their tasks. Bulc is also losing his own ground, because a performance on altruism – or artivism – is a constant confrontation with one’s own work, with the work of others, and with the possibilities of art
in general. He did not save the world with his altruism, but he made a good performance. Is that enough?
