Theatrical rock concert for the young, aged 8 to 99

The performance entitled Last Kiss of Livingston is a synthesis of theatrical and electronic art and at the same time exploration of interdependence of classical music (Bach, Mozart and Rimsky-Korsakov) and modern rock. Siddharta, director Nana Milčinski and three female musicians undertake a story of an identity search, of a desire for fulfilment, and aim at innovation, at the new, at breakthrough, at discoveries of points, territories and models yet unknown. All of these come together through quotations of the Jonathan Livingston story, translated by Janez Gradišnik, narrated by Tomi M. and with the help of the technology of Skype by eminent Slovenians who have revealed their gestus within the universal and who, just as the literary figure of Jonathan Seagull, have themselves experienced the strain of the concept, the training, the faith in knowing and in the goal, and who have stood the negation of this singularity, experienced the isolation and the solitude, but nonetheless those selected for being a reference to and metaphor for the emergence of desire, the persistent dimension of desire which recognizes the inner calling to be its vocation, its gift fulfilment, as opposed to all the other and different circumstances.
