Don Juan is one of those literary figures that have gone through most adaptation. For an entire theatre season, Tomi Janežič and his team also took him as a reference point for their research and laboratory approach. Parallel to that, Simona Semenič was writing a new text, titled as no title yet. Semenič approached Don Juan, this time carrying the quintessential Slovenian name Janez, from the angle of his “seducees” and through the consequences of his acts – which all blend into a whole in a single moment, in a single heartbeat. A moment needed that a body that slips from the bed hits the ground. The text has merged superbly with the material created at the rehearsals, and Janežič mixed it subtly into a rich, layered whole which adds another view to the countless versions of Don Juan and donjuanism, and particularly speaks of our joys, hopes, fears and distress. Here and now. 
„When theater happens, it can’t just happen for someone, but for all the people who are in the space at the time. Suddenly, we are all in relation to some event, problem, something that has been stated or that has crashed to the ground in the background. We are all connected at some point in the fact that each of us establishes an attitude towards what is happening. Therefore, if the impression of an alliance is created, it is good.” (Tomi Janežič, director)
Tomi Janežič (b.1972) is an award-winning Slovenian theatre director, professor and a psychodrama psychotherapist. He is particularly interested in acting techniques, psychodrama and group analysis used for theatre. He is also one of the founders and the artistic director of the Studio for Research on the Art of Acting which runs its activities mostly at Krušče Workcenter for Artistic Research, Creation, Residency and Education in Slovenia.
