Blood Wedding is one of the most prominent texts of the 20th century. Lorca, the great Spanish poet and playwright, wrote it in 1932 and the following year staged it accompanied by enormous success. This play still represents one unflagging source of inspiration and is still present on many theatre stages worldwide. It is a play based on a true story that Lorca had previously read in a newspaper a few years ago. In its core, it is a lyrical romantic tragedy about marriage of convenience, about love and jealousy, about passion and blood feud, about honor and tradition. Written as an inner scream for the traditional Spain before the Francoist dusk where the freedom of the person was drowning in the conventional and the material. That cry that touches us even today, lets loose the two eternal dimensions of being – Eros and Thanatos. The play presents one dance between the two of them leaving the man like a puppet in the storm of passion released by that dance, desperately trying to reach the happiness. Space and historical coordinates split and discharge the mythical matrix where the prosaic present seems like a time bomb.

The Manager

The manager of the theatre, the Gnostic God, who is neither good nor bad, tries to reconcile the directing with the drama by tossing the text of the play into the arena – hoping joyfully for the outcome.

As you can see, everything is possible.

In the chaotic time we live in, time when theatre and art have lost their path, I’ve had an urge to work on this text, “The False Bottom” by Goran Stefanovski. Equipped with a quite serious team, we managed to create a play that poses many crucial questions. Freedom for the artist and their position, the set of values in theatre and art – for I have the feeling that all of that has been lost, lately. The play echoes the voice of the artist for freedom. The artist must be the main critic of the establishment, the artist must keep the vigilant eye on the society, carefully noticing all anomalies and commenting all of them. That is the mission of the artist. No matter the different authorities, the artist is required to point all the mistakes and every wrong decision made. For the artist becomes a slave when he sells his own soul to the establishment, thus putting an end to his freedom. Freedom is a choice, just like the obedience.

Our life is feeble and full of mundane problems; the machinery of capitalism deprives us of our basic ethical and moral values, making us hypocrites, empty inside, lost, wretched and incapable of changing and becoming better people.

We have lost ourselves, and the ones beside us turn into corpses who can accept us only due to a mechanism; we fancy ourselves gods on earth and our sole achievement is an inflated ego – we have become nothing but mouths filled with our own praise.

No answers are given by this play, only questions posed: what does truth mean, what have we gained, what have we done, what are we today like, how to explain to ourselves that we are the lost generation, that we have forgotten to forgive – just like at the finish line of the race, we understand that nothing makes sense, that everything is dull.

And that is the moment when the silence takes place, that’s when the bitter comedy starts – “The Drunks”.

season 2017

A contemporary comedy revealing romance and honesty and putting an emphasis on the core human questions. What’s the world we live in? What’s the human civilization we’ve been brought up like? How are we going to develop? What we are going to evolve in? What is the impact of the high tech on the human race and nature on planet Earth?

The lady walks into a sex shop out of curiosity and the shop assistant most kindly and professionally shows her the sex toys. There is a spontaneous meeting between the characters who later on, through out the intrigues and in a humorous way, reveal their frustrations and complexes. Thus, the author indirectly depicts the contemporary image of the European citizens and their fate.

Can the reason for widespread hatred and evil in society, such as the hatred toward Jews, be found in the psyche of the individual? If so, can the cure for such evil, or for that matter other social problems, be found in the treatment of individual members of the society, whether perpetrators or victims? Or is such a social illness a product of ideology that is well beyond the mind of the individual, beyond psychological explanation and treatment, and therefore all the more frightening?

These questions lie at the heart of “The Meaning of Life”. The clash between Betty, the patient, and Dr. Frankl, the psychiatrist, as well as the struggles, years before, by Frankl and other prisoners in the Nazi concentration camps, are attempts to come to grips with the real meaning of the forces acting upon our world – then and now.
