Kurent 6+

Aleš Šteger / Co-producer City Theatre Ptuj

The ancient Kurent in these present times faces completely new challenges. In a time of global warming he sets off on a quest to rescue winter, which has disappeared. In doing so, he meets different characters that direct him towards Africa, where winter has been taken prisoner. From a mythological hero the Kurent gradually turns into a critical observer of the contemporary world and evokes historical values. In a moment of doubt on a mountain of rubbish he receives a message that reminds him of his origins. He abandons heroism and chooses personal happiness in a remote, mythological world.
