Cast Mark Požlep and Igor Feketija
Two years ago, Mark Požlep, primarily a visual artist, set out on a seemingly eccentric tour: together with the pianist Igor Feketija, they visited a number of elderly homes in the ex-Yugoslav states where they sang to the retired people a medley of Yugoslav musical hits from the 1950s and 60s.
Stranger Than Paradise in Glej Theatre is a documentary performance, something between a concert, a travelogue and hanging out together. It talks about growing old, about common and separate fates, the restoration of demolished relations and dismantled communities. It talks about a generation that lived almost all their lives in a common state and a generation that experienced that common state merely in their early youth. It talks about man and his eternal desire to change, and his
amazing capacity to build and destroy. It talks about Mark and all of us.
