This week marks the end of another long creative journey with director Mare Bulc who I had the pleasure of working with in his epic “Gremo vsi!” This time I joined a group of different artists in staging the book “Novo mesto” by Miran Jarc. Since many of us grew up in Novo mesto and have a personal love-hate relationship with it’s culture and history, the process ended up being much more about us than the book. What first appeared to be a mind numbingly boring task turned into a fun experience and bizarre show. I have nothing but respect for Mare’s way of creating performances, which sometimes remind me more of Stewart Lee’s deconstructed comedy shows than actual theatre. We gave the show a test run last night and I had a great time performing, even though I don’t actually get to do any of the stuff I’m good at.
