Based on real-life events, My War Accordion tells the story of Matija Zorc, Aleš Šteger's grandfather, and spans the five most tumultuous decades of the 20th century, extending from Trieste – via Ljubljana – to the North Sea and the Slovenske gorice region. Through the mediums of storytelling and music, the cabaret de-ideologizes established historical views and divisions, raising the question of historical guilt and accountability without passing conventional judgment.
The cabaret blends elements of poetry, storytelling, performance art and music with video and sound effects. The text is written as a rhymed narrative; the central motif is the grandfather's black accordion, his lifeline in turbulent times, all that remains after bygone ideologies and turmoil, historical dilemmas and crusades.
