Matija Ferlin performs in Ljubljana

place: Stara mestna elektrarna - Elektro, Ljubljana
Following successful shows at Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels, Black Box in Oslo, Infant festival in Novi Sad and Actoral in Marseille, performance Sad Sam Lucky is coming back to Ljubljana Stara mestna elektrarna - Elektro Ljubljana) on 19 January.

Ferlin’s performance Sad Sam Lucky is a physical response to the work of the Slovenian avant-garde poet Srečko Kosovel (1904 – 1926) whose confessional poetry is profound, contemporary in its spirit, internal tension and stylistic imagery, at the same time revolutionary in its ideas, brimming with immediate reflections of his personality, deeply touching and poetically invaluable.
Driven by the lasting relevance of Kosovel’s verses, his honesty, melancholic prophecy and sentimental tragedy – Ferlin in SAD SAM Lucky creates a form of a highly physical, turbulent and emotional homage to this very unique avant-garde author.
