Jiří Zeman and Martina Maurič Lazar / Ljubljana Puppet Theatre / 60 min
In this performance the creators explore the field of an intimate puppet-object theatre. They found the materials that allow a double glimpse into the theme of power, the objects that enlarge or reduce, draw nearer or distance, hide or reveal the seen. They are fond of marionettes, strings, with which they manipulate them or are manipulated by them as well as the images that we can understand within the comfort and security zone as the continuation or other form of hegemony over somebody or
something. The authors also focused on different methods of manipulation with puppets, placing the audience between mirrors, strings, lights and glass. This visual puppet theatre miniature thus re-questions with its means of expression different motives of power and weakness, as well as of public and private.
