Night of the living audience

NIGHT OF THE LIVING AUDIENCE
SAT  / 10. 07. / 23 h
CINEMA TABOR VAROSH

 

How many times did you want to react to a film, but the presence of other people distracted you? We are creating a cinema in which active participation during the screening is not only allowed, but desirable. We offer the props; it’s up to you to decide what to do with them. The instructions are simple enough: do it loudly and do it your way!

It will be a night dedicated to peculiar films which often make us wonder about the motivation behind their filming. To crown the amazement, the audience will have a unique opportunity to choose the craziest film of the festival.

Our guide into the collective madness and cry-out-loud laughter of this year’s program will be Josip Ledina, one of the more intriguing young actors to graduate from the Academy of Dramatic Art in recent times. Perhaps widely best known for his performance as Amir in the Croatian series Crno-bijeli svijet (Black & White World), Ledina has been perfecting his comedic vocation and talents at Teatar Exit, getting huge laughs with his project Fešta (Festivities). This talented improviser – who may be trigger-happy, but exudes the relaxed mentality Dalmatia is famous for – can make the audience cry with laughter with a single gesture or look.
