With Colloquies, Soliloquies Kosmač’s literature enters the stage in two independent, but internally linked theatre texts, performed by four interpreters. The first text mirrors the author’s internal, intimate landscape, his contemplations, doubts, and witty comments. In it, the figure of the creator author is split and analysed as a dramatic script through (self-) analysis by three performers and a Muse in an abstract common space. The second centres on the tragi-comic life-story of Venc Poviškaj, one of the typical village ‘characters’ that Kosmač so loved. In a country inn, the four people who were closest to the misfit and outcast gather after the funeral; in reliving his life and the tragic decision, each recognises his share of guilt.
