About the Coach, Servant, Songs and Events

The play based on the motives of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 6, is an attempt to articulate the musically and emotionally rich material on stage. It opens up a new grotesque image in which an individual is presented with the only solid remaining piece of identity − their taxpayer identification number. Modern nonsense of existence or the world of the living dead in which we perhaps live in today?

I would like to. I want to. I have to. I will. I will succeed. Who does not want to become successful? Who does not want to be successful? This performance will be the one, the best one. We simply need to succeed, we are expected to. But why? The entire performance is created on stage, from the initial idea up to the final product with the creative process unfolding before our eyes. Four actors and their director attempt to break through their own expectations, social pressures and personal encounters. In doing so, they are driven by an internal power, commanding them to Direcror Tin Grabnar

Just before the Revolution: Youth

“Those who find more joy in the past than the future are old.” (John Knittel)

Just before the Revolution: Youth is an original project that explores the moment of a generation becoming independent. We grew up in a world of ecological disasters, social devastation, in a world of capital dictatorship, in a world of fear, in a world which seems to have no future. What are the means of coming to terms with reality and what is the path of the new generation?
