Naked Stage: Backstage Pieces
DEAR VISITORS! IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NEW CONDITIONS FOR VISITING CULTURAL EVENTS, VTR CONDITIONS APPLY TO VISIT THE THEATER
The clown is improvisation.
The clown is creating in the backstage.
The clown show is a rehearsal.
The clown is not serious art.
This time, the Za crknt clowns will defend the trenches of non-serious art, their personalities and alter identities. They will do so in given situations which will be determined in the moment itself.
What happens when the Politician finds himself in a role of a panda at a zoo, how does Jolanda cope with talking to a psychotherapist, what is the producer Klausy doing at the audition for a musical and how is Lingaling promoting smoking marijuana. These are just some of the fun suggestions that performers may be experiencing and playing with live.
The audience will experience the process of creating a clown number, when well-known clown personalities come to life in a context that is not easily fitting. Welcome to the impro clown show. Welcome to the clown backstage.
Years ago, a group of professional clowns decided to create the Za crknt cabaret in order to be able to research and develop contemporary clowning in all its dimensions and to bring it closer to an adult audience. 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 humor and contact the people with their devoted play. With their naive and direct approach to today’s current topics, they address the audience members who took off their work clothes and remembered that they were human.
Tickets: 6 EUR for one show, 10 EUR for two shows of the same evening.
