Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord: Répertoire. Musical Theatre Mauricio Kagel

Saturday, August 31st at 9.30 pm
Stara mestna elektrarna – Elektro Ljubljana

Love at first sound
This performance, with five charismatic performers, resembles the dream of Tristan Tzara when he meets Buster Keaton and is left nothing short of awestruck. Dadaism is the glow that floats over the stage and the performers. It is a burlesque, it is the intonation induced by thoughts of the performance and their movement. Both tragedy and comedy. The dramaturgy in the performance plays with time like a card dealer in a casino. The stage narrative is composed of more than a hundred theatre scenes, skits, and images. Music and theatre flirt on stage in a surrealist spirit, while the performance demonstrates extreme precision in following the score Répertoir by the German-Argentinian composer Mauricio Kagel, who created it in 1970. The performers play on unusual instruments and thus give rise to a utopian world before our very eyes, where we encounter new dimensions while our senses and mind amuse themselves in astonishment.
