Devised performance / The Affluent Drag Ensemble collective with co-workers

Citizens Dragana and Dragica traveled in 2020. Through the cycling protests, through the points of establishing a new statehood, through the key symbols of Sloveneness. Dressed in national costumes singing those old, good, popular tunes. He who sings does not think badly. The longer they walked, the more they wished they were not so much a citizen, but rather a resident. Now they have arrived at the theatre. It’s time for the Jubilee.

What builds and what disintegrates a nation? Who are we and where are we going? What is our identity and how do we transcend it? Is that even possible? Desired? Urgent? In this process, how do we build a relationship with ourselves, with each other and with everything that defines us? How to get rid of the weight of symbols? Is it possible to wash away the sins of the state through symbolic decomposition? What is our alternative? Where do we find freedom? What lies beyond nation, state, humanity? And where in the flood of hard populism is there room for radical tenderness as a point of ultimate resistance to all forms of oppression?
