Peter Kus, Urša Adamič / Kuskus Institute, Branko Mihaljević Children’s Theatre in Osijek / 45 min
The central theme of the performance is the relationship of a grandpa with his granddaughter Lučka. He is becoming forgetful, he sees thing that are not there, his behaviour is erratic and, he is unable to explain why this is happening. While Lučka’s mother is increasingly more worried about her grandpa’s behaviour, Lučka finds it fascinating and is drawn to his world of unusual ideas and flashes. While grandpa, as he ages and the disease advances, returns to his childhood, Lučka is growing
up alongside him. Their paths cross at a certain moment, and they connect in the mutual understanding of the play.
Through the usage of masks, puppets, the theatre of objects and shadows, the performance presents the psychological world of the elderly with dementia in a poetic and visually stunning way. Children and adults alike can thus identify with their different experience of the world and better understand and accept the changes occurring in their relations with the elderly, brought by this disease.
