Zagreb Clown Festival: ZABORAVI NA DULCINEU

In a small theatre in an even smaller village, an unlikely Maestra dreams of changing the world with her less likely opus. Her problem is that she has only two actresses and both want to play Juliet. When a pizza delivery guy arrives on the scene with a pizza and amnesia, mayhem ensues as the little troupe’s machinations to cast him as Romeo grow to epic proportions.

U Zaboravi na Dulcineu fluidnu figuru kazališnog klauna puštamo da kroči tvrdoukoričenim izdanjima kanonske literature. Tako dovedeni u suodnos i klaun i klasik prepoznaju ono što ih veže: besmrtnost kao modus postojanja (poznato je-  ni klauna ni klasika nikad ne zahvaća konačnost smrti),  ali i isti predmet interesa- ono suštinski ljudsko.  Dekonstrukcija klasičnih tekstova- od Shakespearea do Šenoe- ovdje je primarno ludističkog nadahnuća, klaun se s tekstom igra, kao s kockama, koje  rastavlja i ponovno sastavlja, kao što to čini dijete, nevino i bez druge primisli osim užitka u igri.

 

In FORGET ABOUT DULCINEA, the desire to bring a fresh reading of the masterpieces of Western literature drives the comedy. Romantic love is at the core of this simple story of subterfuge.

The clowns have stumbled onto the classics, and everything will explode. In addition to Shakespeare, Cervantes, and Ibsen, expect intrusions of Dostoyevsky and Dragojević to add spice to this saucy revisitation of the classical canon. Zany characters quoting classical texts out of context, physical comedy, music, and dance all contribute to the madcap race towards an eventual poetry.

To the strains of vaudevillian-style live music played by the actors themselves, and rousing dance numbers, the eccentrics do their best to unravel the real love stories they misquote, which are as old as time.

As Lysander says in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “The course of true love never did run smooth.” And he also points out, “So quick bright things come to confusion.”
