A couple of days ago Mladina, a popular Slovene weekly magazine published my portrait. It is available only in Slovene and the full article can only be accessed by paying a subscription, but nevertheless - here is a screenshot of it, linking to the site:
We had a blast in Maribor and the piece now travels abroad for the first time - you can catch me in Kule, Berlin on the 7th of November! Thinging also got the first review published in Dnevnik newspaper. Pia Brezavsček, a critic and a theatrologis, wrote (among other things):
“[When Jan] opens the curtains he also opens our heads to the wide object universe and makes us feel like small and insignificant things. In ecosystems, we humans are only one component of many, if we are present at all.
We can only hope that another talented creator who knows how to think choreography wider than the formula dance equals (human) movement won’t be forced to work only abroad.”
We had a full and successful Thinging premiere night! Big thanks to the amazing team of artists and friends that helped to make it happen, to Emanat for trusting me and producing the piece, to PTL for their hospitality in the theatre space, to everyone that came in during the process and gave valuable feedback and to everyone present yesterday! It was a pleasure!
