Performer Simon Šerbinek
We live in an intense time – in a constant overflow of information, the dominance of technology, alienation and loss in a new reality. A direct reflection of this time is the play in which the actor Simon Šerbinek interprets selected excerpts from the philosophical essay Fragility by the world-renowned screenwriter and writer Jean-Claude Carrière. The actor gives a unique theatrical lecture through his personal experience, which has largely shaped and marked his life. The play appeals to
different generations, from high school students to people experiencing the autumn of life. Carrière’s deeply humane and empathetic writing, with its calm, so to speak, Zen note, seems like a balm for the vexed souls of modern times: "We would need a voice, a simple, calm voice that might tell us, ‘I know nothing more about this than you do, I do not bring you any special enlightenment, I have no religion, no God-sent system to offer you, but I live a different life than yours, I have come to
know this and that, I try to look at the world from different angles and we could, if you want, do part of the way together’."
