    Naše nasilje i vaše nasilje / Our Violence and Your Violence

    How much can art contribute to a general consensus today? Shouldn't it do the opposite? Shouldn't art be an alternative vision to existing political and economic systems and individual interests? To commemorate the 100th birthday of Peter Weiss, HAU Hebbel am Ufer has commissioned Oliver Frljic to create a contemporary interpretation of Weiss' revolutionary novel-essay «The Aesthetics of Resistance». The book is a monumental thought construct reflecting on the relations between art and political power. Although the plot is set in the late 1930s, it has obvious similarities to our contemporary times. Oliver Frljic's new production questions the situation of the world and that of Europe in particular: exclusion and isolation are on the agenda. What kind of theatre is needed in times of an apparent return of fascism in Europe? Oliver Frljic, known for controversial and uncomfortable political questions in his performances, brings together the ensembles of the Croatian National Theatre in Rijeka and of the Slovenian Mladinsko Theatre in Ljubljana on stage in an international co-production.
