Moon on the Road is a nostalgic performance about a forgotten clown who wanders empty city streets at night.

People have long since forgotten about clowns, laughter and mirth. Because he no longer has work, the clown rambles around and rummages rubbish bins for food. In a deserted street, he notices a faded, torn poster that reminds him of the glitter of the circus where he used to perform. The moon peeks from behind a cloud …

Or, as Ivan Peternelj, the director of the performance, says: “Theatre is a black hat of a magician. The performance Moon on the Road is a nostalgic miniature for two clowns. A tramp clown and a moody bohemian girl clown meet when the full moon reigns over the night, shedding mysterious dust falls, dust that enchants everyone and makes them act silly. Clowns are unpredictable and complicated creatures and thus silly twists occur: all quite illogical, insensible and incomprehensible. But clowns know how to deal with this, just as every child is right in her or his own perception of the world. Long live clowns, tears and laughter.”
