Leo Mujić

The Silence of my Murmur

Premiere: November 19, 2010.

The anniversary season will be opened by the world premiere of the work based upon the poetry of Dobriša Cesarić, a great Croatian poet of the 20th century. This author of numerous beautiful, seemingly simple verses, has inspired the young choreographer Leo Mujić to do a ballet entitled The Silence of my Murmur. The choreographer took Cesarić’s motifs and verses as the basis of his work and completed them with the music of several classical composers (W. A. Mozart, F. Schubert, C. Debussy, T. A. Vitali) and by the electronic music of a young Croatian composer Anita Andreis (known for her scores
for animated, feature and documentary films, TV shows and theatre performances). With the characteristic dance expression which cherishes the high level of the classical technique, the author creates a ballet set in the set, costume and light frame of his frequent associate Tomas Mike.

Choreographer and Director: Leo Mujić
