Ján Mikuš: TURN YOUR HORSES! ( The Death of Jozef Chovanec )

An original Slovak play that won the State Theatre Košice Award in Drama 2020.

Premiere
Place of Performance
Tabačka Kulturfabrik

A post-dramatic stage vision called "Turn your horses!" speaks in urgent language about brutal and superficial reports of our recent history. The story of murdered Jozef Chovanec and a trip of a former prime minister to the opera in Dresden, become victims of theatrical poetry.

A slice of the world from one airport hall and a spiritual message of biblical figure, St. Paul, is an unique contribution to the discourse of contemporary Slovak drama.
