“Are you lonesome tonight?” is the first question this play will ask, and then it will involve you in the examination of issues such as intimacy, vulnerability, hurting, faith and doubt in love, and the possiblity for love and art to bring magic into our lives.
Can we choose to believe in love in the time of cynicism and loneliness?
This show is a collective creation resulting from a research process of a group of young artists. The initial inspiration came from the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, but during the work the myth was deconstructed and from the topics it addressed, the love story of two couples emerged – a couple meeting each other and the other who are parting.
”What I think all of us need to know is – where and how I can be in love and being able to live? So I can live with some degree of peace. That’s all I care about – love. And the lack of love. When does it stop … It seems that no one in this world is able to love beyond a certain limit; we all go to a certain extent when we become emotionally tired, when we become bored or when we become injured. People change and their love doesn’t go beyond the barriers” (John Cassavetes)
The performance features excerpts of writings of Jean Anouilh, Tennessee Williams and Vasko Popa.Drawing from different inspirations, the artists formed the structure and text of the play together.
The production “After the game” is the second co-production of association “Echo Animato” and Belgrade Youth Centre, after the remarkable “The Glass Menagerie” in 2011. “After the game” is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia and REA Lab.
