About the performance

The Counsellor is a series of visits to a mysterious master whom people consult for advice. The mysterious master, who wants to help people and asks no payment for his help, can listen carefully, asks direct questions and gives the best advice he can. He’s a mixture of a psychotherapist, interrogator, confessor, philosopher, artist ...

Korun is a brilliant observer of social reality – the Slovenian and the international. He deals with grand eternal themes, but also with tiny peculiarities and habits of the people of today. He asks questions about the meaning of life, moral and ethical dilemmas, human identity, death, love, sexuality, intelligence, stupidity, religion, ideologies ... He is a humorous, yet sharp, critic of the current and erstwhile politics and witty in describing anxieties of a contemporary human and his striving to find quick and easy fixes. Who is the Counsellor? Why do people come to him? And where are we, actually? A surprising turn unveils the view of completely new images, new understanding, new criteria, new essence...
