You are invited to the Sacrament of the Dead on the 23rd of January at 19:30, when the performance in progress by the group Trup/a; Mrtvaški ples (Dead Man’s Dance) will resonate between the walls of the St Francis of Assisi Hall.
🦴 Mrtvaški ples (Dead Man’s Dance) will be honoured visually with a projection, and musically with the sovereign sounds of the local band Peška, who will close the event with a concert. Come and witness the omnipresent teaching of Sisyphus.
This time the group is made up of Vid Karlovšek, Hannah Koselj Marušič, Urša Majcen, Martin Mikolič, Nela Poberžnik and Lenart Sušnik ( in the full cast also Hana Meško).
Their original point of contact is the anthology 𝘉𝘰𝘨 𝘴𝘪 𝘨𝘢 𝘥𝘳𝘬𝘢 𝘯𝘢 𝘯𝘢𝘴 (God is jerking it off on us), but this time they are back with a new idea for a multimedia poetic performance in progress, based on uncensored young poetic expression, the theatrical concept of the dead word, and in relation to the Dead Dance of Hrastovlje.
You can expect a Sisyphean grotesque interrogation of cultural identity, heritage, the absurdity of human nature and death, with a special musical and visual accompaniment, surrounded by the church walls of St Francis of Assisi.
Peška is a Koper-based band, defining its genre as “𝘯𝘦š𝘵𝘰 𝘧𝘶𝘯𝘬”. What catches the listener’s attention the most is their musical originality, which has been lacking in coastal young music ensembles for many years, and they are so distinctive in terms of genre that they stand out sovereignly from the musical trends that we nowadays call “music for young people”.
The event is made possible by the Koper Municipality, the Koper Public Institute for Youth, Culture and Tourism and the Trite Institute.
