Don Juan is one of those literary figures that have gone through most adaptation. For the entire last season, Tomi Janežič and his team also took him as a reference point for their research and laboratory approach. Parallel to that, Simona Semenič was writing a new text, titled no title yet. Semenič approached Don Juan, this time carrying the quintessential Slovenian name Janez, from the angle of his “seducees” and through the consequences of his acts – which all blend into a whole in a single moment, in a single heartbeat. A moment needed for the body that slips from the bed to hit the ground. The text has merged superbly with the material created at rehearsals, and Janežič mixed it subtly into a rich, layered whole which adds another view to the countless versions of Don Juan and donjuanism, and particularly speaks of our joys, hopes, fears and distress. Here and now.
Running time: 10h including 4 intermissions.
