The HatchetIntermedial cabaret, length 60 min

The Hatchet, Boštjan Lah for Puppet Theater Maribor
The Hatchet is an intermedial cabaret based on Fran Levstik's story Martin Krpan from Vrh pri Sveti Trojici. It reinterprets this iconic story by placingfive animators, actors and musicians in the heart of an inn in Notranjska instead of the former imperial capital.

The versatile performers reinterpret Levstik's well-known fairy tale by placing its motifs in a new context and weaving them together into a dynamic composition interwoven with the accordion, rock music, situational comedy, specific objects that are carefully crafted puppet elements and improvised passages. Intermedial puppet cabaret The Hatchet is an interactive, relaxed yet complex and socially critical performance that uniquely combines elements of alternative conceptual art and the rusticl comedy.

The Hatchet is the new creation of Matija Solce, a travelling puppeteer, actor, musician and director who is taking the puppet stage by storm with his boot and accordion shows. It is a collaboration with Studio DAMÚZA (Czech Republic), which has been active in the theatre scene since 1999. It supports a new kind of theatre that does not fall under the usual theatre practises, and above all provides a space for ambitious projects by students and fresh graduates of DAMU.
