Aljoša Rebolj (Slovenia): Sculptured Time in Tomaž Pandur's Theatre - open-air photographic exhibition
The internationally renowned Slovenian photographer Aljoša Rebolj's exhibition Theatre Photography brings together 120 photographs of theatre productions by the Slovenian theatre director Tomaž Pandur, whose unique approach has left an indelible mark on contemporary European theatre.
Pandur's lavish and spectacular theatrical creations, mostly international co-productions, have been referred to by important European institutions and theatre critics as "the theatre for the new millennium".
In Rebolj's photographs, the moments captured from Pandur's theatre productions Medea, Hamlet, Caligula, Barroco and Tesla and the ballet Symphony of Sorowful Songs, which has recently been staged at Berlin's Staatsoper Unter den Linden, are recreated as icons of theatrical moments accompanied by quotes from literary classics reminiscent of film subtitles. The photographs depict such acting stars as Blanca Portillo, Vladimir Malakhov and Asier Etxaendia in their stage roles.
Aljoša Rebolj (born in 1966) first made a name for himself as a TV presenter and theatre actor and later mainly as an outstanding photographer. He attracted international attention with his series of photographs Barroco: Dangerous Liaisons Icons. Apart from the Barroco series, his Tivoli Park exhibition features five new photographic series.
