This is the first all-evening clown performance for adults in Croatia. ‟The Nightingale‟ is an offspring of an, for us, unfamiliar theatre-the clown theatre. The stripped stage with a ‟stripped‟ actor. The actor acting as a clown tries to achieve the simplest and yet the hardest stage performance – of being a human. When his hither side, his pure existence is recognized by the audience, laughter is born. The Coco family and their odd guest encounter, or involve themselves in a series of possible and impossible situations unraveled by everyday life and thus attempt to aspire to their main intent, to marry their over aged daughter.
Musicians are on stage throughout the performance, following the actors play by creating a vast and rich sound specter, and thus opening the door of the gliding present moment to the audience. Everything is live, everything happens now.
