Performance about the performance we’ve cancelled
Viva Verdi under the pretext that it is a protest deals with reasons what an artist should do and what for. On the sense of creating that which no one needs. On the nonsense of creating that which is expected. The performance created about artistic laziness, is a story that runs around questions whether it is possible to combine opera and performance and why this should be impossible.
“Via Negativa managed to connect the incompatible; a subtle analysis of sloth, Verdi and his opera with the physical and ideological unyielding of the performance.” (VEČERNJI LIST ZAGREB, July 2006)
“Via Negativa showed exceptional theatrical nerve, energy, invention, imagination, demonstrating without restraints where the European theatre goes.” (VJESTNIK ZAGREB, 3.7. 2006)
