Rok Vilčnik rokgre has been nominated four consecutive years for the Slavko Grum Award. The book includes three plays, the first two, Tarzan and Our Theatre, were nominated, while the third – The Sakeshvili Democratic People’s Circus – won the Grum Award in 2016. Regardless of whether Vilčnik confronts us with a love triangle in the jungle, a circus from the totalitarian Sakeshvilian state, or "our" theatre, he discloses the more or less hidden methods in which human society and its
institution operate. His critical point cannot be overlooked: if at the beginning we might still be laughing at the author’s distinctive humour, the laughter gets more and more bitter towards the end. The author’s arrows hit their target all too well. After successful productions at home and abroad, the plays are awaiting a new, parallel life in book form.
The discussion with Rok Vilčnik about the book Plays. Tarzan, The Sakeshvili Democratic People’s Circus, Our Theatre which was published by Sodobnost International will be hosted by Rok Andres. The book presentation will be followed by a performance of Tarzan by Theatre Gigante (USA).
