On Wednesday, September 25, performances „Beside You“ by the YUN Theater from Korea, „The House of Hedgehog“ by the Children’s Theater of Republika Srpska, and „Shoes“ by the Theater „La tête à l’envers“ from Belgium were performed in the competition program of the International Children’s Festival in Subotica.

Play „Beside You“, performed in Children’s Theater in Subotica, deals with an interesting theme:Does the Gayageum player have to stop giving a performance when one of the strings breaks? Being stuck in a situation where she cannot move forward and backward, the broken string itself continues to tell a story of our heart and mind”, says the synopsis.

The director and lead actress in the play Hyejin Yun explained the importance of the instrument for Korean culture. „Kaja means earth, and gum means instrument. Kajagum has 12 strings, each signifying one month of the year. This instrument, in traditional culture, symbolically represents the universe as well – behind the moon and the sun, between earth and sky. Kajagum is the best instrument, „says June. She found her inspiration in her own life. „I had an accident and I was going through a difficult time thinking about how to move forward. Then I looked at the kayagum, whose strings often break because they are made of silk, but the music goes on. I thought it was the case with me. If something is broken, this is not the end, “ Hyejin Yun concluded.

Play „The House of Hedgehog“ was performed on the stage „Jadran“ at the National Theater, tells us that the world is not as it seems at first glance. „We tell a fairy tale about people, as the writer, Branko Ćopić, used to say. That there is something more, something deeper than dull materialism in the world, which, unfortunately, has been indoctrinated in many children’s fairy tales,” announced authors in their description of the play. Director is Slobodan Perišić, set designers are Marko Bilbija and Monika Ponjavić, while the puppets are in charge of Berina Šuščević.

The play „Shoes“ by „La tête à l’envers“ theater from Belgium was also on the repertoire of the „Jadran“ stage at the National Theater. In this show, the main characters are Simone and Solange who appreciate work that is well done. “Each shoe is picked up with care, fixed up, pampered, adopted. They give a second life to old shoes of all types and colors and use them for telling stories that take them far away from their daily lives.”, says a description of this non-verbal performance aimed for children of 3+.

On the sixth and final day of the Festival, on September 27, the last performance in the competition program „The Cricket and the Ant“ from Montenegro was on the program at 10 am on the „Jadran“ stage at the National Theater. The manifestation will end with a closing ceremony at 8 pm at the Subotica Children’s Theater, by presenting awards for the best actors of the International Festival of Children’s Theaters.

Predstave iz Koreje, Belgije i Republike Srpske odigrane petog dana Međunarodnog festivala pozorišta za decu u Subotici

26. septembar 2019.

U sredu, 25. septembra, u takmičarskom programu Međunarodnog festivala za decu u Subotici izvedene su predstave „Pored tebe“ Pozorišta YUN iz Koreje, „Ježeva kućica“ Dječijeg pozorišta Republike Srpske, i „Cipele“ teatra “La tête à l’envers” iz Belgije.

Predstava „Pored tebe“, izvedena u Dečjem pozorištu u Subotici, bavi se zanimljivom temom: da li svirač korejskog tradicionalnog instrumenta kajaguma mora da prekine svoj nastup kada jedna od žica pukne? „Zarobljen je u situaciji gde ne može ni napred ni nazad, ali pokidana struna sama nastavlja kazivanje priče naših srca i umova“, stoji u sinopsisu predstave.

Rediteljka i glavna glumica u predstavi Hedžin Jun, pojasnila je značaj samog instrumenta u korejskoj kulturi. „Kaja znači zemlja, a gum znači instrument. Kajagum ima 12 žica, od kojih svaka označava jedan mesec u godini.Ovaj instrument, u tradicionalnoj kulturi, simbolički predstavlja i svemir – iza meseca i sunca, između zemlje i neba. Kajagum je najbolji instrument“, kaže Jun. Inspiraciju za predstavu je našla u vlastitom životu. „Imala sam jednu nesreću i proživela sam težak period, razmišljajući o tome kako da krenem napred. Onda sam pogledala u kajagum, kome često pucaju žice jer su od svile, ali se muzika nastavlja. Razmišljala sam da je tako i kod mene. Ako je nešto slomljeno, tu nije kraj“, zaključila je Jun.

Na Sceni “Jadran” Narodnog pozorišta izvedena je predstava „Ježeva kućica“, koja govori o tome kako svet nije onakav kako nam se na prvi pogled čini. „Mi pričamo bajku o ljudima kako je i sam pisac, Branko Ćopić, često govorio. Da u svetu ima nešto više, nešto dublje od tupavog materijalizma, koji je nažalost, indoktriniran u mnogim bajkama za decu“, najavili su autori predstave u opisu dela. Režiju potpisuje Slobodan Perišić, scenografi su Marko Bilbija i Monika Ponjavić, dok je za lutke zadužena Berina Šuščević.

Predstava „Cipele“ teatra “La tête à l’envers” iz Belgije takođe je bila na repertoaru Scene „Jadran“ Narodnog pozorišta. U ovom delu glavne junakinje su Simon i Solanž, koji vole dobro urađen posao. Sa svakom cipelom pažljivo postupaju, doteruju je i prilagođavaju. “One daju novi život starim cipelama, svih tipova i boja, i koriste ih za pričanje priča koje ih odvode daleko od njihove svakodnevice”, stoji u opisu ove neverbalne predstave, namenjene za decu uzrasta već od tri godine.

Za šesti i poslednji dan festivala, 27. septembra, zakazana je poslednja predstava u takmičarskom programu “Cvrčak i mrav” iz Crne Gore, koja je na programu u 10h na Sceni „Jadran“ Narodnog pozorišta. Manifestacija će biti okončana svečanom ceremonijom zatvaranja u 20h u Dečjem pozorištu Subotica, kada će biti i uručene nagrade za najbolje aktere Međunarodnog festivala pozorišta za decu.
