On theatricality of relationship between a performer and his audience; on its depth and profanity, its authenticity and illusion. The title song “Tonight I celebrate my love for you” (Michael Masser, Gerry Goffin, 1983) is the introduction into 8 popular song with which the singer and the performer Uroš Kaurin, accompanied on contrabass by musician Tomaž Grom, expresses his love for his audience. “Today’s viewer seems to be used to almost everything. It actually seems that he has already seen, experienced, and consumed everything tangy the theatre had to offer. Tragic faith, live violence, nudity and sex, and similar attacks on his privileged position, he has dealt with already, and now he is only ready to enjoy theatre … “ (Blaž Lukan: Approach, 2004) Only one question remains: If the audience of today is ready for everything, does it mean that a performer of today must be ready for everything too?
