Saška Rakef: The Debt of Rakef Saška / The Debt of RS
Saška Rakef’s solo performance emanates from her personal experience of debt payment due to inadequate management of a family company, which subsequently had to be removed from the state registers.
»Debt of the Republic of Slovenia isn’t yet another reality-based story of a self-employed professional in the field of culture on the verge of a financial (and possibly other kinds of) collapse, that talks about the ailments of civil obedience and paying off your own debts. /…/. Even though its visual scenery comes accross as /…/ rather simple – as a tell-a-tale performative lesson with a lectern, two microphones and one single person – the performance nevertheless succeeds in creating a complex landscape of meanings by drawing on polyphony of voices that echo various performances of Debt of the Republic of Slovenia.«
