East/West - ballet triptych
Saša Evtimova, Martin Chaix, Igor Kirov

East/West - ballet triptych

Three one-act choreographic units introduce us to choreographers of new European generation, choreographers representing three different styles of dance, leading us through a handful of contrasts to the joy of full complementarity.

Rhinoceros
Eugène Ionesco

Rhinoceros

Nightmare of endured war reality becomes the backbone of this play in which a mysterious infection slowly turns people into rhinoceros. Metamorphosis connecting totalitarian linguistic discourse and primal human animalism becomes thus a powerful image of lost humanity in the invading tide of madness and as such a welcome theatre vaccine against all forms of collective contagions.

La Sylphide
Herman Severin Løvenskiold

La Sylphide

One of the world’s oldest surviving romantic "white" ballets represents a continuation of fostering classical repertoire on the stage of the CNT Split. This fairytale story set in the Scottish highlands, where the main character James, shortly to be married, falls in love with ethereal forest-spirit creature and breaks off his engagements, surrendering himself to the world of sylphs and witches, will be staged in Split by a Danish artist Karina Elver.

An Enemy of the People
Henrik Ibsen

An Enemy of the People

Ibsen uncompromisingly leads his hero beyond the order where democracy represents a mere terror over majority fascinated by their own gain. Doctor Stockmann - because of his insistence to cleanse the actual and moral quagmire of the community – will be declared an enemy of the people. Because “people”–manipulated by local rulers – will stand by a nice and righteous doctor only until they realizethat his discovery could give their town a bad name and empty their pockets.

Six Characters in Search of an Author
Luigi Pirandello

Six Characters in Search of an Author

In this Pirandello’s play the so-called ordinary people interrupt a theatre rehearsal unexpected and uninvited with an unusual request: we want our story to be told on the stage! This rough intrusion into the protected theatre space is no longer a trigger for conversational drama of absurdism as it was at its première, but possible start of a cruel, activist story about theatre occupied by people in a desperate search for any kind of satisfaction. Those six characters, disappointed with political leaders and banking elites, choose theatre as their last resort, however under their terms.

A Romance of Three Loves
Antun Šoljan

A Romance of Three Loves

A Romance of Three Loves by Šoljan is a witty and touching drama play in verse, formally endued with Moliere – Shakespeare features, which puts us at the same time the most complicated questions about love and life. On the Stage 55 it will be directed by Nikola Šimić.

Little Floramye
Ivo Tijardović

Little Floramye

Following the original ideas and drafts of maestro Ivo Tijardović, Little Floramye was imagined as homage to a lost time and spirit, addressing contemporary and new generations at the same time: Is there any place for love and respect for our differences in this carnival whirl of anachronism, politics and consumerism?

What Are We Waiting For?
Marija Dukić

What Are We Waiting For?

The work of Marija Dukić, within the framework of the Project “Towards real male – female equality: how to reconcile professional and family life”, directed by Marica Grgurinović, directly stimulates critical reevaluation of gender stereotypes deeply present in contemporary Croatian society.

On the Road
Igor Kirov

On the Road

Ballet combining classic and contemporary elements danced by seventeen ballet dancers was premiered at the 62nd Split Summer Festival on the Sustipan venue in 2016. Igor Kirov once again proved that imagination, dynamic and high technical demands represent the fabric of his choreography writing.

Strašni roditelji
Jean Cocteau

Strašni roditelji

„Da ovo stavimo u najgluplji bulevarski vodvilj, kritizirali bi nas zbog pretjerivanja“, izgovara na jednom mjestu tata Georges, a njegova svastika Léonie malo kasnije mu cinično odgovori: „Ne znam je li ovo drama ili vodvilj, ali u svakom slučaju je remek djelo“. Igrajući se kazališnim konvencijama i gledateljevim predodžbama komedije, melodrame, drame i motiva grčke tragedije, subverzivni gospodin Cocteau ne daje nam ključ za snalaženje u labirintu zamršenih odnosa unutar jedne nevjerojatne (incroyable!) obitelji. Taj opsjenar riječi („…francuski je rječnik prava farmakopeja – s jedne strane otrov, s druge lijek…“ – R. Barthes: Fragmenti ljubavnog diskursa), opsjenar slika i psihe zavodljivo nas vodi putovima i stranputicama naših duša da bi poljuljao sve arhetipsko u nama, a istovremeno nas zabavlja.
