Monument G2: Janez Janša in Dušan Jovanović
Production:  Maska Ljubljana in MGL

Monument G is one of the cult performances of Slovenian neo-avantgarde theatre. Based on a play by Bojan Štih, it was directed by Dušan Jovanović and represents a break in the understanding of theatre language. Veno Taufer, poet and theatre critic, characterised the performance as “an experience of total theatre”. In it, the “rhythmical sound layer blends with the expressiveness of movement, the actress’s voice and gutturally articulated sound.

After his successful and talked-about reconstruction of the cult performance Pupilija, papa Pupilo pa Pupilčki Janez Janša has reconstructed also Monument G, but in a completely different way. Dušan Jovanović is restageing the original performance together with Jožica Avbelj, while, at the same time, the reconstruction directed by Janez Janša has also taken place on stage, with a dancer of the younger generation, Teja Reba.

Maska last appeared at the Bitef Festival in 2007 with Pupilija, Papa Pupilo and the Pupilceks, wining the special jury award.
Program Maske podpirata Ministrstvo za kulturo RS in Mestna občina Ljubljana.
