The Golem, part 3
A sitespecific dancespectacle at the Ljubljana castle

The Golem is free!
At the end of “The Golem, part 2,“ the Golem danced into his newly-found freedom, leaving his dead creator and bearing an imposing egg.
In part 3, the last one in the whole cycle, the Golem has become a woman–and in fact a queen. Making her way through the world of people, the Golem Queen arrives finally at the castle of Ljubljana. She would like to rest and eat after the long trip; but also, a rumor has spread that other young members of her species live at this fortress. As she arrives, men with torches are standing guard at the castle entrance - minor obstacles for a very attractive Golem queen! Once inside the castle she founds her “children” , sleeping on a stage and protected by a huge egg.
But also her opponents – the creators – led by an impressive huge queen are merely lying in wait in other parts of the castle. All the humans have heard of her arrival and are planning to attack and drive away the Golems. The latter present a grave danger to the human race because they first clone the humans and then kill them – the Golem Queen‘s murder of her creator has become common knowledge.
Here in “The Golem, part 3” the public will become witness of the final showdown between the golemgeneration and the creator-mankind.
Butohdancers, firedancers, dancers on stilts, live musicians and an opera-singer, all dressed up in extravagant costumes of Alan Hranitelj, will show a vivid and spectacular dancetheatrepiece within the walls of the ljubljana fortress, where the audience can still feel the smell of the old Golemlegend.

Golem 3
Plesno-gledališka ambientalna predstava na Ljubljanskem gradu

Golem je osvobojen!
Na koncu “Golem 2”, potem ko je za seboj pustil mrtvega stvarnika, golem odpleše v nanovo odkrito svobodo, oprtan z bremenom mogočnega jajca.
V tretjem, zadnjem delu celostnega cikla, golem postane ženska – in kraljica. Ko si utira pot skozi svet ljudi, se golem-kraljica na koncu znajde na Ljubljanskem gradu. Rada bi se spočila in okrepčala, toda že se je raznesla govorica, da v trdnjavi bivajo tudi drugi mladi pripadniki njene vrste. Ko pride do vhoda gradu, jo tam pričakajo čuvaji z baklami – ti so lahka prepreka za privlačno golem-kraljico! Ko ji uspe vstopiti, najde svoje “otroke”, speče na odru, ki ga čuva velikansko jajce.
Toda njeni nasprotniki – stvarniki, ki jih vodi mogočna veličastna kraljica, čakajo v pripravljenosti na skritih kotih gradu. Vsa človeška bitja so že slišala za njen prihod in se pripravljajo na napad, da odženejo goleme. Ti namreč predstavljajo smrtonosno nevarnost za človeško vrsto, saj ljudi najprej klonirajo, potem pa jih ubijejo – splošno znano je, da je kraljica umorila svojega stvarnika.
V predstavi “Golem 3”, tretjem delu, bodo gledalci postali priče zaključnemu obračunu med golem-generacijo in stvarnikom-človeško vrsto.
Buto plesalci, plesalci z ognjem, plesalci na hoduljah, izvajalci glasbe v živo in operna pevka, vsi oblečeni v ekstravagantne kostume Alana Hranitelja bodo prikazali živahno in nenavadno plesno-gledališko predstavo znotraj obzidja Ljubljanskega gradu, kjer publika še vedno lahko začuti vonj starodavne legende o golemu.
