»Autumn crocus« – a small creature tries to master its life. It needs to try harder to make its wishes become reality. To do so, one has to have endurance and prove one’s courage. The marionette wants to be a person and remains trapped in a mysterious cage. It is manipulated and controlled as if by magic – yet it slowly develops its strength, learns and hopes, finds its own thoughts, makes plans and asserts itself in everyday life.
The magical piece »Dejanje brez besed« (»Act without words«) moves between the world of puppetry and theatre. Three performers accompany the life of a doll, without language, with simple means. A complex topic is presented: A person attempts, at first unknowingly and helplessly, to find their way in the world and to survive. Not least of all, the small, loveable creature – is it a child, a dream or our own ego? – wins the hearts of the audience with one of the highest of human goods: the imagination.
Compagnie Moment was founded in 2006 by Zoran Petrovič, born in 1980 in Slovenian Maribor. It develops speech, puppet and dance theatre plays. Zoran Petrovič has staged numerous puppet theatre plays, gives workshops for children and young people, and he also works as actor, among others at the National Theatre of Maribor. In summer 2011 »Dejanje brez besed« was shown with great success at the Festival Le Off in Avignon.
»The puppet animation is one of the most sophisticated elements of performance. In this respect ›Dejanje brez besed‹ is an experimental performance not only for the animators but also for the audience« (Barbara Volčjak, Večer, Maribor, 01.06.2010).
