The famous cabaret by Predrag Lucic and Boris Dezulovic at the Day of the Serbian Cultural Center »Danilo Kis« in Ljubljana
Studio LuDež: MELODIES OF VILLAGE AND BRUSSELS
Old local power plant – Elektro Ljubljana, February 21st, at 21.00
A cultural breakaway event, poetic cabaret, sit-down comedy and singing performance with an appropriate euro-integrational title „Melodies of village and Brussels“ is the latest version of the show, which Split journalists and writers Boris Dežulović and Predrag Lucić perform for eight years and never repeat it.
„Melodies of village and Brussels“ is the work of the creators of the Feral Tribune and they represent the feral form of all forms and against all uniforms. So far it was best known under the headings „Melodies of struggle and transformation“ (drama, sadness, tragedy) and „Melodies of Flash and Storm“ (history, farce, pastime).
Through the „Melodies…“ parade priests and presidents, general-corporals and criminal-capitalists, wholesalers and little gods, faces from reading books and international warrants, managers of war and peace, Eurocrats i money-makers, national bards and multinational brands, telecommunists and democrats, gusle philharmonics and turbo-folk klape…
„Melodies…“ are a festival of hilarious ballads about heroic crimes and dedicated heroes, shepherds and herds, transition of crime into virtue and transformation of patriotism into robbery of motherland.
From 2007 onwards they were performed under different names in more than thirty cities of the former Yugoslavia and the future former European Union. In the 2010/2011 season they were on the repertoire of Satirical theatre Kerempuh in Zagreb, on the Split summer festival every year there is a always a need for not only a ticket more, but a show more, so it is performed twice in one evening. They were performed on many more other cultural and literary festivals.
