CASABLANCA THERAPY

Bojan Jablanovec / SI/

The stories about being a victim of consumption’s love ideology sprang up, scenes about searching for new but at the same time more and more ridiculous and absurd ways to satisfy need for love and need to be loved, were created. Casablanca is a performance about love as a misunderstanding, packed with cheese romantic songs and love clichés. It exploits theatre as a group therapy; performance culminates with the invitation to the audience to come on stage and touch performers following the instructions on their laptops. Casablanca therapy is a performance desperately needing to be touched by the audience and risks to be disappointed again and again.

The project was made as part of an international enterprise entitled DNA (Development of New Art) as a production of the Nova sit initiative. After a couple successful European tour, it is to be performed just twice in the Czech Republic in Prague.
