Curators’ Statement

The performance Solo (a coproduction between Mladinsko Theatre and Maska from Ljubljana) cannot be categorized as “nomen est omen”, since it involves four performers, and is thus not a - solo. Its starting point, however, does correspond with the title, since it truly was “solo” and based on a personal professional reflection by the director Nina Rajić Kranjac, her position in her line of work and theatre circumstances in Slovenia. Although other participants contributed with their own experiences (which makes the performance a sort of devised theatre) it retains its autobiographical character, mostly due to the fact that Nina herself plays in it (and masterfully so). Both she and other participants (professional actors) play in a free, improvising, and physical manner, with frequent changes in genre and style. Just like the style, the topics too are varied and non-systematized, and yet dominated by the feeling of anxiety felt by a young and successful woman working on a small scale in a traditionally male world.
