Description

Visual artist Silvan Omerzu is known primarily as the author of grotesque puppets that are transformed into sophisticated ascetic figures; they reflect on the meaning of life, the magic of death, pure art and divine perfection, about the mystery of creation. Omerzu has, with different types of puppets brought to life by Mladinsko actors, stage Ivan Cankar's The Ward of Our Lady of Mercy, a tale as fragile as butterfly wings telling a story of innocent maiden souls taking leave from this world.

A hospital room, a long space with a metal wall at the back. In the wall, a big sliding door, hospital beds by the walls, a rectangular table in the middle. By the beds, wheelchairs and hospital screens. On the wall, above the door, a slit shaped like a cross, with light shining through it. Above beds, on the ledges, wooden skeletons are sitting; machines that can bang their hands against the wall and rattle their teeth,” is how Silvan Omerzu described the stage space in which Cankar's short novel comes to life.
