The aim of the dramatized poetry by Srečko Kosovel is to encourage the viewers to indulge in wonder as well as to soften, cheer up and rock themselves into the simple rhythms of his verses. This poetic and puppet collage takes its viewers to the world of sensory, musical and imaginative theatre.
We thus invite you to use all your senses and enter the theatre, which in fact is the World itself and to allow yourselves to be amazed! It really offers so many interesting things … There are no puppets in our performance. But the animation is there! The animation of everything: space, material, objects, light, sounds, words, people. We animate the poet himself. We animate Srečko Kosovel, we animate the performance and we animate the viewers. Why? Our intention is not only to enjoy the images and events, mediated by the poems but also to capture their spirit.
