Description

Pavla Above the Precipice is inspired by the life of mountain climber Pavla Jesih. The text for the play was written by Andrej E. Skubic, translator, playwright and novelist, who enthralled us with his numerous novels.

For Pavla Jesih, the mountains were that world where she could feel independent. Together with men co-climbers, she climbed a lot of new routes in the Slovenian mountains, and she was mostly the first climber in a roped party. In 1933, her mountaineering activities were interrupted by a serious accident at Mount Velika Mojstrovka.

Therefore, she focused on cinema. She had spread the network of cinemas from Celje and Ptuj to Ljubljana, and already before the Second World War she became the owner of the famous Matica cinema, located in the building of the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra in Ljubljana, and the cinemas in Celje and Ptuj. Her last wish that her ashes would be scattered over the wall of Mount Špik did not come true. Now she climbs in the theatre...
