Matjaž Pograjc: AMOR OMNIA VINCIT (Blažka Müller Pograjc)

theatre performance

This poetic and yet rather cruel story, which Matjaž Pograjc likes to call a magic physical performance, is fragmented and functions on several different levels. The narrative here and now consists of a story about Marie Curie’s love episode, which leads us to Blanche Wittman’s and Jane Avril’s past. The dialogues are poetic, the language elevated, the subtle associations and metaphors surpass all that has been standardized and expected in language thus far and as such require outstanding skill and mastery from the acting interpreters and dancers. Which form are their dramatic impersonations to inhabit, leading down the unknown path of the terrifying and repulsive world of femininity and love?
