Being Don Quichotte
Puppet performance for two performers, a puppet and a bunch of unusual objects upgrades the motifs of the Cervantes’ novel and the visual poetics of the Czech master of surrealist film animation Jan Švankmaker with the personal confession of today’s creator, torn between idealism and the struggle for survival. Thus the fight with windmills is transferred into the context of a conflict between various theatre genres, as well as between material (puppet) and animator, tradition and postmodernism, between artistic idealism and pragmatism, artist and society. Being Don Quichotte is a dynamic theatrical composition of inventive staging techniques that takes us from Pythonesque comedy to the animation of objects, musical and improvised inserts.
Matija Solce, acclaimed and award-winning puppet director, actor, puppeteer and musician, received his PhD from the Prague DAMU Academy. In his works, he closely connects music and theatre, which is why his puppet performances are also interactive musical compositions. Presented quite often in the form of the object theatre, they contain precise rhythmic animation with  fragmented  dramaturgy,  through which the audience becomes part of the theatrical experiment and repeatedly finds itself discovering the unexpected.
