About the performance
“An artist that does not make mistakes is an artist that dares not take risks.”
Transnational artist Heidi Blumenfeld blurs the boundaries between high art and entertainment, between funny and serious, between masculine and feminine. Her art is her juggling that gives the performance a strong visual character. But how to do art? How to be an artist in the time when everyone wants to be an artist?
The performance is an artwork and an artistic manifesto that Predstavaje umetniško delo in hkrati umetniški manifest, ki ošvrkne institucijo, sodobno umetnost, hipije in hipsterje in se preko novih scenskih prijemov vedno znova vrača k arhetipu. Minimalistic cabaret aesthetics combines with perfected circus technique and a character with a mission – do not bore the audience.#Manifesto isa humorous and an ironic piece that celebrates art and subverts the myths around it.
About the artists
Andrej Tomše finished the circus school CAU in Granada, Spain. He also holds a degree comparative literature and Spanish language. He seeks his artistic expression in combining circus techniques and theatre acting. He write on stage, for the stage. He lives between Berlin and Ljubljana and he like to play chess.
EX-teater combines acting, music, circus, and dance. Searching for sound dramaturgy, they begin in acting and dance, not the other way around. The group was founded in 2016 by the director Hristina Vasić Tomše, composer and poet Slobodan Ivanović, and performer Andrej Tomše. The audiences in Ljubljana got to know EX-teater this year at the theatre Glej where they prepared a miniature work-in-progress piece Ringside. #Manifesto is their first complete and finished performance.
