Tango on the street

Comparative review of two walkabout street performances.

Compañia Teatral Devenir (Argentina): Without words
Belle Etage (Austria, Columbia): Tango? Si, tango!

7th July 2017, Ljubljana, Ana Desetnica International Street Theatre Festival, 2017

The article is a part of my highlights of 2017 Ana Desetnica festival.

At 2017 Ana Desetnica festival, there were two walkabout performances using the medium of social dance – TANGO! – as a mean to engage passers-by on one-to-one basis, seeking for playful physical interaction. Both had two performers – one female, one male. Both had mostly Latin American cast (two Argentinians, one Columbian, one Austrian), So it was only natural to sit down and jointly explore what happens when Latin american dance culture crashes into more rigid central European public behaviour, while sipping on Mate Yerba.

Juggling towards subtlety

Review of a street theatre performance after seeing a show and having a nice chat with its author over a lunch.

Benjamin Richter* (Germany): MozArt

5th July 2017, Ljubljana, Ana Desetnica International Street Theatre Festival, 2017
* At the festival Benjamin Richter performed under the artistic name “Ben Smalls”. 

The article is a part of my highlights of 2017 Ana Desetnica festival.

MozArt is a juggling show, not really about juggling; or a clown show, not really about the clown. The juggling and the clown are just devices to guide the audience’s focus towards the story, which … isn’t really a story. It’s a concert. Or a dance performance? A dance concert?

The article is a part of my highlights of 2017 Ana Desetnica festival.
In my introductory reflection I delved into methods performers can use to sustain a coherent narrative within street theatre environment. It can be read as a prelude to this review:
