Today is Tomorrows’ Yesterday

Exodos Ljubljana and KUD Samosvoj are presenting a new theater event that brings together two shows “METAMORPHOSES ° 2:  Lost (P) paradise” and “Love is the answer, what is the question?” Directed by authors Bare Kolenc, Teja Reba and Loup Abramovici.

Today is Tomorrow’s Yesterday is composed of two duets related in their contemplation of time, desire, ideals, love, loss and death.  The tie that binds them is the confrontation of the void; the displacing of a dead-end moment with an attempt to jump to the other side. 

 

METAMORPHOSES 2°: Paradise Lost

No-place is inherently impossible but it nevertheless exists, as a multitude of desires, as the primordial human phantasm extending in two directions: it is an individual’s founding act; the junction of performances serving the individual to construct their personality and their own projection into the future; the ideal they strive for. As such, this place is inherently utopian.

Scenes and texts are work of group of artists. The show is performed in English.

LOVE IS THE ANSWER, WHAT IS THE QUESTION?

Love is the answer, what is the question? invokes a situation where a man and a woman perform fragments that seem to emanate from their lives, their loves and their potential deaths. The interplay of these roles draws attention to tension and makes confronting the void visible. It is as if they are trapped in the middle of “the night of the crisis”, which could be both personal or global.
