We live in interesting times!
The much-hyped Croatian premiere on March 5 at the National Theatre (HNK) main stage, part of the bimonthly talk series “Philosophical Theatre” hosted by young pop-philosopher Srecko Horvat, was unilaterally and with no previous warning cancelled by the HNK only three days before the event for unspecified “technical reasons”.
Furthermore, the theatre actively undermined efforts to secure an alternative premiere venue on very short notice, by pointedly refusing to share information about any new venue with audiences coming for refunds at the theatre’s ticket offices.
Luckily, our excellent Croatian distributor Restart succesfully pulled off a more than full opening house and subsequent Q & A at Zagreb’s DokuKino the day after, with audiences and reviewers equally appreciative.
Mission completed and then we take Ljubljana!
