So To Speak: Virus
The cycle of theatrical essays, So To Speak, brings original texts performed by their authors
Mladen Dolar (with Blaž Šef): Virus
A philosophical confrontation with the well-chewed topic of the last two years through historical, linguistic and literary wormholes offers a fresh look at the (corona)virus and the situation we are in, illuminated from unprecedented perspectives; musical, theatrical and dictionary references are ingeniously further illuminated by actor Blaž Šef.
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.
