REEL

PESEM ZA ENO DREVO / A SONG FOR DREVA

Pesem za eno Drevo je avtorsko-glasbena predstava nastala po motivih romana Klovnovi pogledi Heinricha Bölla. Premiero je doživela 19.1.2016 v Salonu uporabnih umetnosti v Mariboru. Pesem za eno Drevo je moj prvi avtorski projekt, ki sem ga v celoti naredil sam. Roman Klovnovi pogledi je bil samo izhodiščna točka, v predstavi se namreč lastno intimno izmenjuje z romanesknimi deli. Rdeča nit so kantavtorske pesmi, ki povezujejo, komentirajo in povzemajo govorjene dele besedila in oboje se zliva v mešanico koncerta in gledališke predstave. Tudi samo dogajanje odrskega dogodka poteka na poseben način; niha namreč med improvizacijo, dramsko predstavo in glasbenim delom. Predstava je primerna za vse starostne skupine gledalcev.

 

Predstava traja od 55-70 minut.

 

 

A Song for Dreva is a musical performance based on the motifs of the novel The Clown by Heinrich Böll. Its premiere was held at the Salon of Applied Arts in Maribor on 19 January 2016. A Song for Dreva is the first project entirely created by me. Böll's novel The Clown was only the starting point, and therefore there are novel parts in the performance exchanging with my personal intimate experiences. Singer-songwriter songs represent the common thread of the performance as they connect, comment and summarize the spoken parts of the text and thus offer a mixture between a concert and a theatrical performance. Even the actions on stage are carried out in a special way, fluctuating somewhere between improvisation, a theatrical and a musical performance. The performance is suitable for all age groups.

 

The duration of the performance is 55-70 minutes.
