In Silent Breath the author does not only dissect a typical Slovenian family, but explores feelings of being lost and lacking any prospects, as well the burning ambition of the generation Y, and other most up-to-date features of Slovenian everyday reality.
In his new play, commissioned by the Ljubljana City Theatre, Nejc Gazvoda (1985) continues to explore family pathologies he elaborated in his earlier play Changing of the Guard and a theatre crime series Crow Gate. With Silent Breath, the multi-awarded author, screenwriter, film and theatre director, hailed as one of the most distinguished voices of his generation, will present himself for the first time in a double role on the Main Stage. In Silent Breath he does not only dissect a typical Slovenian family, but explores feelings of being lost and lacking any prospects, as well the burning ambition of the generation Y, and other most up-to-date features
of Slovenian everyday reality.
Silent Breath is a one-act play about a family whose little tragedies are the tragedies of us all.
