Zoom Festival 2022 _ dizajn Marino Krstačić-Furić i Ana Tomić

While time flows irreversibly in the cosmic dance of the great ball we call Earth, humanity seems to stand still, immersed in serious social divisions, catastrophic symptoms of climate change, extreme differences in wealth, inequalities in the redistribution of natural resources that are on the verge of exhaustion, and wars that seem unlikely to become a thing of the past. Solving these problems would require immediate engagement and radical changes in our behavior. However, the selfishness we show in this age of anthropocentrism threatens not only our existence, but also the existence of the entire planet. Money is a deity, while the market economy is a religion that should not be questioned. At the same time, trust in institutions, science, art, and politics is at its lowest levels. We don’t know the facts, we deal with partial information that splashes us from the screen while scrolling endlessly. We deny the world around us in all possible ways, from the objectivity that surrounds us, to our interpersonal relationships and various possibilities of emancipation. Every day we give our share to the culture of alienation and the splendor of the society of the spectacle, directing ourselves towards the ever-increasing consumption of products, technology, resources and information, thereby closing the loop that leads us to our own destruction.

The theme of climate change affects us all, but is especially important for the young who will inherit the planet and are keenly aware that we need to act now if we are to preserve the Earth life as we know it. Or something similar to it. The data on declining biodiversity, growing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, contamination with plastic and other waste, and, on the other hand, plans of the fossil fuel producers are simply terrifying. Inextricably intertwined with all of these are class issues and (neoliberal) capitalism. The artistic team will contemplate the idea of degrowth, the feeling of anger that comes over almost anyone that delves into environmental issues, and whether it is justifiable to resort to violence in order to put an end to this devastating spiral. They will also give thought to hope; one that is focused on a clear and still attainable goal and is not grounded in fairy-tales.

We have used some motives and fragments from the books Less is More: How Degrowth Will Save the World by Jason Hickel, How to Blow Up a Pipeline by Andreas Malm, Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson and The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming by David Wallace-Wells.

Theatre is useless, it does not produce a neoliberal wish to spend. In this artist talk, artist Lea Kukovičič extensively analyses the project FORSALE, a conceptual artwork that goes beyond theatre and plays with the economy.

FORSALE is a performance auction house established in 2021 as the first auction house in the world auctioning theatre performances. The historical first auction was held in Slovenia at the contemporary performing arts festival Mladi Levi auctioning the performance Ich kann nicht anders by Slovenian collective Beton Ltd. The average sales share at the auction was over 65%, which is higher than the average auction sales shares made by the world-renowned auction houses Sotheby’s and Christie’s. FORSALE is an auction house, yet an intriguing conceptual artwork with provocative content created by artist and theatre maker Lea Kukovičič, who (together with an extensive team of collaborators) stepped right into the void of the most trusted, popular and hyped fiction: money (and law).

Artist talk FORSALE reveals the layers of mechanisms beyond money (and law) and maps the matrix of theatre where one needs to step into the heart of darkness with other people. Because FORSALE is not about caring or about theatre. FORSALE messes with the economy.

“Little Miracles” are the tragicomic monodrama of actress Sanja Milardović, who presents herself to the audience as a text author, director and actress. It is a play of a very layered narrative that fragments the present and past of the writer Ana, combined with a surreal and absurd story built around Flora, the main character of her novel. So this is the story of a woman in her 30s. Let’s call her Anna.

Ana suddenly and abruptly lost a close person, and then with her choice completely isolated herself from the outside world and focused on the writing process in order to survive. Ana always felt and fought a lot (sometimes for two), but from that moment when her previous life was cut short, there was only one thing left — find a way to cope with the imposed reality and dysfunctional world that surrounds it. Her recovery gradually turns into an unpredictable and bizarre journey in which, writing about Flora, she will learn immensely about herself.

In an hour-long journey between the rented apartment where Ana moved in seeking peace, and Flora’s world, which is based on absurd legalities and debatable choices, the audience has the opportunity to discover what it is harder to be human or a whale, what miracles the everyday life of all of us is made of, what are the ideas we get and lose every day and how they can literally save our lives.

*Project “Little Miracles” is a continuation of the platform of young authors of the artistic organization TeatruM and the continuation of the production of author projects, women’s stories and female authors.

• duration: 25 minutes

Inspired by Guy Debord’s “Society of the Spectacle” (1967.), the artist is researching spectacle as enhancement of consumeristic capitalism/market, which has spread through all areas of human existance, and has indeed affected the way we percieve reality. The spectacle is nothing but economy that develops for it’s own sake and it’s social role is production of alienation. The culture of spending and consuming is being shaped, and the meaning of leisure and free time is no longer a free choice of individual – it is in fact subordinated to market and accumulation of profit. The spectacle produces estranged (in)activites, like watching TV, shopping, social networking and encourages isolation thus creating „a lonely crowd“. Allthough the subjects are participating voluntarily in this market, they are not aware of their own participation and of production of the spectacle itself. The rise of media and techonological advancement shapes our reality more and more, manages social and individual activity and influences the organisation of social structures and subjects. Melodrama examines how an individual lives in such a society, how he helps to build it and how he manages the consequences of this spectacle production. Melodrama is imitation and overemphasis of reality, trapped in staging her own self, captured in repetition and illusion of moving forward, in endless scrolling into infinite nothing.

Mateja Bučar: Parquet BallPhoto: Tanja Kanazir / Drugo more (Flickr gallery)

“Perhaps we can imagine the couples in evening dresses elegantly circling across luxurious parquet floor of a dance hall, but, that vivid association is contrasted by the strict literality of the title, Parquet Ball, and in its remoteness from a parquet ball, is a story about dance; a dance about dance as the phenomenology of movement and space. Here, the numerous moments of reference to modernism are no coincidence. The performance is set in motion by a parquet ball, a self-referential object which is closed in on itself, and which simultaneously summarizes not only the thinking (in terms of dance, choreography) and the media itself but also a materialization of the space itself; the space as a medium of artistic creation. And here we also cannot simply conclude that the medium is the message: we might sooner understand the material scheme of dance in Parquet Ball as a search for that most common primordial language of the body, which is the foundation of the universality of dance, and also always the cause and motivation for its manifold codes ”

Lyrical Minutes in the City came about in the production of Bunker under the auspices of the Mladi levi festival 2011. The events were directed by the renowned Belgian artist Dirk Opstaele, who has been working with his Brussels-based artistic group Leporello for several years now. Singers/actors performing were all nationally as well as globally renowned opera artists.

The synergy formed between the director, his sensitivity for opera music and outstanding performers thus assures the success of every »lyrical surprise in the city«. Due to a great interest following the premiere in Ljubljana in August 2011, the lyrical surprises took place throughout the summer of 2012. The overall enthusiasm brought about by the Lyrical minutes in the city has triggered its guest appearances abroad.
