“Where is the gun” at “Ohrid Summer” drama repertoire
The drama program of the festival “Ohrid Summer” continues tonight with the theater performance “Where is the gun” by Gabor Gjorej, directed by Dejan Nikolovska and performed by the National Theater from Ohrid.
The performance will be played on the small stage at the Culture Center “Grigor Prlicev” starting at 9 pm.
It is a modern satirical text with a strong existential background, created in the seventies of the last century. At its core, the text deals with the human dual nature, playing between the positions of the oppressor and subjected to the five characters that carry the action.
The word “gun” suggested in the title is nothing but a theatrical sign, a system of abstractions, a symbol of the power of violence – whom the characters use to terrorize the others. The place of action is a closed space, in which there are four people sitting and the fifth one pointing a gun at them. Four of them always want to get out of the room, and the fifth one will always feel good inside. That’s the one with whom the gun. The source of all the problems is exactly the gun. The gun could have a different purpose, but not in this case.
