Devised theatre, third part of Trilogy
The Trilogy Jure Novak: This is why I’m happy (Jure Novak: Zato sam sretan)/ Katarina upon order (Katarina na narudžbu) / Orgy (Orgija) by Slovene authors Katarina Stegnar, Jure Novak and Urška Brodar has been created since the year 2011. Within it, Brodar, Novak and Stegnar break down the classical theatre hierarchy of authorship cast. In the first part it is only the director Jure Novak who appears on stage, in the second, Novak is joined by the actress Katarina Stegnar, while in this one all the three will appear on stage, the director, dramaturge and actress. Formally, the trilogy deals with playing upon the borders of fiction and reality and re-examining the position of the spectator and performer, while in substance the first part of the trilogy, Jure Novak: This is why I’m happy, deals with depression, the second part, Katarina upon order, with aggression, while Orgy will tackle transgression. Orgy is the play on going beyond limits, limits in relationships and family, in public and in politics. Orgy is the play on sexual and intimate transgressions, on going beyond the limits of morality and ethics. Orgy is also a social experiment. It is a reconstruction of one of the most notorious entertainments of the past century. At the performance of Orgy we will set you free and seduce you, entertain and consume you.
