Exercises in Style – festive performance on the occasion of its 50th anniversary

A festive performance of Raymond Queneau’s Exercises in Style, directed and adapted by Tomislav Radić, will be performed on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 7.30 p.m. at the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb on the occasion of 50 years of continuous performing. Lela Margitić and Pero Kvrgić appear in this cult performance of Planet Art and the translation and adaption of the text was done by Tonko Maroević.

One ordinary event from everyday life told in twenty different ways thanks to the idea of local authors and the virtuosity of the actors, became a top-quality comedy which all generations enjoy. This cult performance has been performed for the past 50 years and has been enlisted as a phenomenon in the Guinness book of records as a performance performed for the longest period of time with the same cast. Created after the original idea and stage direction of Tomislav Radić in the adaptation of Tonko Maroević and Tomislav Radić Exercises in Style offered in the late 1960s an unusual theatre format and became an original model for a new theatre expression in which the actor along a psychological creation of the character, create the context of the drama plot and this opened space for a new type of acting authorship and an entirely new theatre direction.

Tickets for this festive performance can be purchased online and at the CNT Box Office at the price of 60 to 150 HRK.
