So to speak: Knittings + Amateur

Bojana Kunst: KNITTINGS
Performed by: Bojana Kunst and Damjana Černe

“Everything there is, is connected, that’s why you have to be very careful when you start knitting. Count the stitches carefully and make sure they don’t slip from the needle. Once you’ve knitted something, it will be easier, but if you’re not careful, it will fall apart, get knotted and you’ll have to count again.” That’s what granny used to say to little Bojana. So many years later, they are talking again – this time on a theatre stage and at the intersection between feminism, politics, ethics and ecology, in a mix of memory and reflection. Caring is not only an intimate commitment, it is also a political question. In her theatre essay, Bojana Kunst, together with her co-actor Damjana Černe, reflects on it and weaves it with the utmost caution, depth and care.


Marko Radmilovič: AMATEUR
Performed by: Marko Radmilovič and Dario Varga

Marko Radmilovič, journalist, writer and long-time scribe from the swamp, will take the stage with his Amateur, which in his own satirical way will shake the foundations of a theatre torn between amateurism and high art.

Takorekoč (So to speak) – the cycle of theatre essays was finally performed in its entirety in the 2021/2022 season, amidst all the epidemic complications and delays, and in April this year the first two essays of the new cycle were already performed. If we didn’t know exactly where we were going when we were planning it, we absolutely know where we are now. Takorekoč (So to speak) developed into an extremely interesting platform for exploring theatrical practices somewhere on the border between theatre, theory and literature.
