PERFORMANCE: LEPURICA (ACCORDING TO PIGMALION) Duration: 105 minutes Croatian National Theater Split George Bernard Shaw / Ana Prolić: Lepurica (according to Pygmalion)
The play Lepurica, based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, brings new and different, but on stage no less potent points of view – not only on the boards of the Split HNK but also in its socio-political context. Although they still thoroughly play with the issues of language and its role in today's society, the characters and situations of Pygmalion will be found within complex male-female, peripheral-central, teacher-student, immigrant-native relations, as well as those of children and parents, art and culture, politics and life, real and retouched images. Characters from this contemporary interpretation of Pygmalion rent the Split HNK stage for a birthday celebration, listen to the shamelessly impoverished language of public figures and mix local chard with that of the supermarket.
The play Lepurica plays 24.9.2020. at 8 p.m. Buy a ticket HERE .
