Vinko Möderndorfer, director, playwright, poet, and prose writer, is one of the most versatile and productive Slovenian artists of today.
His Grum Award-winning play for best Slovenian dramatic text of 2014, Europe, is subtitled “A Meaningful Drama, a Terribly Blasphemous Farce, a Poetic Burlesque, a Severe European Nightmare and Much More”. With piercing perceptiveness, Möderndorfer holds up a mirror to the Slovenian social situation and, using the skilful farcical method of a comedian, parodies both the national and the European dream, which are changing ever more evidently into their opposites. The young intellectual Maks, who is short on rent and gets thrown out on the street by his landlord, has no other option but to return home to his mother. Yet his coming home turns into a terrifying nightmare in which the structure of dreams merges with a farcical image of the near future.
