  • June 25th, at 7.00 pm, Croatian National Theater Šibenik, Šibenik, Croatia: Wolfheart – AS PART OF 57th INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S FESTIVAL


“Carefully put together and visually powerful, Wolfheart does not just bring attraction in the sense of strong and short-lived impression, but is the result of a thoughtful creative process, which does not go too far and does not imposes final answers. Instead, it allows the spectators contemplation of its topics and visual quality, which are the result of good interaction of performers and handling of different theater techniques.” Leon Žganec-Brajša, www.kazalište.hr, Dec. 2nd 2015.

“The performance is a thoughtful and accessible interaction of science and art which empower each-other and offer each-other chance for mutual inspiration and interpretation… Wolfheart presents the story of Slavc through a lot of different performing elements, which nonetheless function as consistent and supplement each other. A feeling for the right measure of individual elements (which in their accuracy never forget on a grain of always welcomed self-irony) builds in the whole performance a dramaturgical dynamics and exciting unpredictability. The performance fulfills multiple purposes (as well as types of audiences): it is educative, humorous, critical and “full-blooded“ theater.” Zala Dobovšek, unpublished review
