Olivier de Sagazan: Transfiguration

For young audiences 16+ and adults
Directed and performed by: Olivier de Sagazan

Olivier de Sagazan, a biologist by training, began painting and sculpting with the pervasive idea of questioning organic life. His passion for breathing life into matter gave him the idea of covering his body with clay in order to observe the emerging "object". This experiment resulted in Transfiguration, a solo in which we see the transformation of a man. On stage, the created mutant, half man half monster, starts looking for its own true identity under the masks. The performance takes us on a fascinating journey into the uncanny soul of the artist. It produces a visually rich experience that gives new meaning to life and offers a mesmerizing, occasionally disturbing and exciting insight into an alternative self-image that is completely uninhibited.

Historicization (of Contemporary Slovenian Dance)

Okrogla miza pred predstavo 2. decembra 

Zgodovinjenje plesa #1: Upor
2. 12. 2022 ob 18. uri, sejna dvorana M3
Prvi dogodek v ciklu dogodkov Zgodovinjenje plesa bo potekal kot interaktivna diskusija, ki bo v središče postavila znamenito koreografijo Žive Kraigher Upor. Upor je izhodišče plesne predstave Iščoča, plesalke in koreografinje Urše Rupnik, ki bo premierno zaživela prav po pogovoru, ki bo črpal tako iz knjige o Živi Kraigher (Maska, JSKD), nastajajoče knjige o Jasni Knez, kot tudi ustvarjalk, ki so v svojem ustvarjanju že srečale z Uporom.
Sodelujoče: Bara Kolenc, Vilma Rupnik, Jasna Knez, moderira: Andreja Kopač
 

Urška Rupnik and Maša Kagao Knez are the authors of the project Historicization (of Contemporary Slovenian Dance) whose basic guideline is the re-actualization of the creators of contemporary dance in Slovenia. Its history is extremely rich, colourful and varied, but regretfully also forgotten, despite the abundance of footage, photographic material, newspaper coverage and other documentation of the activities of the leading names on the contemporary dance scene since the 1970s.

Cum mortuis in lingua mortua

Monodrama

Cum mortuis in lingua mortua is the title of one of the pictures in Mussorgsky’s famous suite, Pictures at an Exhibition, which the composer dedicated to a prematurely deceased friend, a painter, hence the subtitle, A Remembrance of Viktor Hartmann. The monodrama Cum mortuis and lingua mortua moves through the catacombs of memory. The theatrical images that come to life are unrelated fragments of personal, human, and historical memory
 

Izhodišče za gledališki prostor je praznina. Izhodišče za gledališko svetlobo je tema. Izhodišče za gledališki kostum je golota. Izhodišče za izrekanje gledališkega besedila je molk. To so štiri izhodišča, ki bodo gledalcem omogočala vpisovanje njihovih pogledov, asociacij, misli in idej. Ivan Peternelj

Sad Sam Manifestacija: Sad Sam Revisited

Ferlin's first solo Sad Sam Revisited, which made a significant impact on the contemporary dance scene in Croatia and more broadly in the region, also in Slovenia. Fifteen years later, he is back on our stages. The performance will be followed by a panel discussion.


This is the fortune of manhood.
Images and image.
Burning the calm fever of love.
I press the button.
He feels.
Fainting upon the obstacle of touching.
Nothing I care remains.
He took the silence.
I took the devotion of a staring fantasy.
I’ve made a comedy of becoming a man next to an animal. 

Ferlin’s first solo piece Sad Sam Revisited goes back to the final year of his studies in Amsterdam. Although the performance was shown only twice on Slovenian stages, it triggered a number of resounding critical (and theoretical) responses. Marina Gržinić, for example, wrote that the performance is “almost an ontology of dance” and Ferlin a “pure terrorist (of the Deleuzian type), who has decided to eliminate the too many returns of all there is in the theatre of contemporary dance and opted for difference in its purest form, which is life.” Sad Sam Revisited encapsulates the procedures of contemporary theatre and dance with unexpected maturity and boldly sets out to face the demanding performative non-acts of duration, of persisting in forming a state, albeit never wavering to interrupt the narrative. The palette of Ferlin’s performing corpus in Sad Sam Revisited already incorporates recognisable sequences of the physical procedures he commonly uses, as well as the skilful shifting between humour and dryness, which performatively plays with the poetic fragments by Katalina Mella in the field of contemporary dance (and theatre). 
 

Round table conversation: Staging a Conversation: manifestacija diskurza


to run across the surface, to sew gaps, to pair commas, to be here and there, in the performance and in the text, to go back and forth, to write out a thought before it is quite clear, before the cursor stops, before despair settles in over the impossibility of embracing the performative set and its effects
The accompanying event to Sad Sam Manifestations will try to play with a discursive format: the starting point will be short papers by the participants, diverse in genre and theme, from which will emerge a dialogue between two of Matija Ferlin's close collaborators, a conversation with his professional audience and a moderated discussion. The staging of the conversation will thus not only translate the performance (or opus) into a vocabulary of reflection, but will also interrogate the basic coordinates of the discursive event by shifting and interweaving, thereby reiterating Ferlin's departure from conventional staging. What then are the relations of his staging, what kind of affectivity does it produce, in what ways do different levels of narrativity participate, how does the spectator become embedded in this web of meaning through his or her experience?

Guests: Jasna Jasna Žmak, Goran Ferčec, Blaž Lukan, Maša Radi Buh
Moderator: Rok Bozovičar

The performance is part of the Sad Sam Manifestation festival co-produced by Cankarjev dom and Emanat Institute.

Ana Pandur: Party Box

Ana Pandur continues to weave the red thread that unravelled in her project premiered at the first Bi flamenko festival. Like in Firebird, the Party Box’s soundscape again relies on shrill guitar riffs. With the difference that the artist here takes a "step sideways", into complete silence. The introductory part, White Noise, “deafens” us with silence, and the second part, Black Sounds, picks up where Firebird fell silent, except that this time the role of the guitarist is taken by Damir Avdić.

The Banquet – A Black Ode to the Present - cancelled

Director: Tatjana Peršuh

An original interdisciplinary production, The Banquet is an evenly-balanced blend of music, physical theatre and dramatic art.

Based on F.M. Dostoyevsky’s novella The Double, the show also reflects on the tragic fate of composer Robert Schumann, Dostoyevsky’s contemporary, who suffered from mental instability and bouts of nervous exhaustion.

It focuses on several contradictory aspects of man, an individual considered in different social contexts simultaneously, assuming various roles and alter egos. The protagonist is a tragic victim of his personal anxieties, plagued by a sense of entrapment. Confronted with the rigidity of the political system and its forms of aggression, the hero is repeatedly thwarted in his quest for the elusive ideal of a modern, successful and healthy citizen of the world.
