So To Speak: Kaiser’s axe or where to put arguments
The cycle of theatrical essays, So To Speak, brings original texts performed by their authors
Jerneja Ferlež (with Jurij Drevenšek): Kaiser’s axe or where to put arguments
In collaboration with actor Jurij Drevenšek, the author wittily explores the theme of different perspectives and views on the unusual event of a neighbour chopping firewood in the middle of a rainy summer afternoon, touching upon the question of the formation of prejudices and unfounded fears.
The series of theatre essays So to Speak, created under the curatorial direction of Boštjan Narat, is a novelty in the Slovenian theatre scene. These are philosophically and theoretically inspired texts with a strongly expressed literary dimension, possibly enriched with a personal touch – texts performed on stage by their authors themselves in tandem with an acting partner. It is therefore a new theatrical format that successfully combines in-depth reflection on current (or eternal) topics and their dynamic presentation, thus breaking down the preconception that the two do not often go hand in hand.
