About the performance

A year after their father’s unexpected death, an estranged family gathers to shower the youngest daughter, a.k.a. "Kiddo", with advice and love as she leaves to study in Ljubljana.

Kiddo has a sister, Petra, and a brother, Marjan, who are over ten years her senior, and a mother who doesn’t understand her. All four of them were affected by the recent loss of the father more than they’re willing to admit. Petra, who lives in Ljubljana with her boyfriend Janez in a loving relationship filled with humour, is going through a sad, still hidden story; while the 34-year-old Marjan still lives at home and is, because of his former partner Maja, the mother of his child, a mere shadow of what he used to be. And Maja is coming for a visit on that very day.

But Kiddo sees everything through the here and now. This night is her story, and she’s telling it from a time when people around her are no longer what they used to be, some might even no longer be here at all. In one act and in real time, a story of a family slowly and gently opens in front of us, a family whose small tragedies are the tragedies of us all. Silent Breath is a drama about a Slovenian family that refuses to judge what we are, but merely observes the human inside us.
