Matjaž Zupančič’s play The Corridor (2002) depicts the background of one of the television programmes belonging to the socalled reality TV. Seven young people take part in the show where the cameras shoot them night and day while viewers vote for their favourite person. This is a drop-out game: anyone who cannot last or breaks the rules or is not favoured by viewers must leave the show. The last one who remains, is the winner and is richly rewarded. Zupančič’s paly, naturally, does not show what television viewers see but rather what is going on in the corridor, the only room without cameras and microphones. There the competitors can relax and be sincere, at least they think so. Since life in front of cameras is anything but simple and the audience’s expectations grow rapidly, the corridor is becoming the place of increasingly tensed scenes, fights and various fits. The competitors gradually begin to lose their nerves and the game becomes crueller nad pitiless…
Matjaž Zupančič (1959) is a director and writer, as well as a professor of directing at the Academy for theatre, radio, film and television in Ljubljana.35th Festival of Slovene Drama in Kranj
