Sad Sam Lucky is a collision between a dancers and a dead poet.
With billowing coal dust, explosive words and electric movement this is a highly physical and turbulent tribute to one of the Balkan’s leading avant-garde authors.
Srečko Kosovei was a post–First World War Slovene poet now considered one of central Europe’s major modernist poets, a political poet and a voice of international socialism.
“Expect raw physicality” — The Gazette (Montreal).
“Sad Sam Lucky is a performance marked by Matija Ferlin’s exceptional performing skills” Plesna Scena (Hungary).
“Ferlin succeeds in evoking the force of Kosovel’s verses, which in the search of the right form surely go beyond the level of language.” —Matica.hr (Croatia)
