PLAY | Masters
Majstori (Masters), a theatre performance, produced by the Moruzgva Theater will be played on July 18th, 2011. in Sutivan.
ABOUT THE PLAY:
The masters have been following me for a long time. Behind me are 3 thorough adaptations in 2 apartments and countless minor alterations and repairs. A large number of construction workers have gone through my life, and when we add car mechanics, electricians, home appliance service technicians and other craftsmen, the experience is more than enough. And I learned a lot. For a start, you have to know everything that masters do, at least theoretically, otherwise you are threatened with breaking deadlines or cost estimates. It’s not bad to know how to use some terms like “vagres” or “cerclage”, and I learned along the way what drips, parapets and angles, handle flexor and drill, smoothing, plastering, painting with pick tape, removing parquet and arguably lower transportation prices shut up. However, people are more interesting to me than crafts, so I always made short-term but intense friendships with my masters, fell into marginal relations and some unusual intimacy that is more characteristic of trench warfare than conversations in a ruined apartment. Even during the penultimate remodel, I wanted to write a play that would simultaneously follow my work on the adaptation of one novel and the works in the apartment because both interventions began at the same time. I did not write the play then, and it is needless to say that the works in the apartment ended thickly after the premiere of the adaptation of the novel. However, such content has been on my mind for several years. What to say when you find out that your mortar is mixed by a former disco owner in Brazil and fluent in Portuguese, but now he has decided to make a living by the hardest jobs to understand the real value of money because he once gambled millions? Or when those parquets are sanded and varnished by three accustomed parquet workers who met in prison and decided to live honestly? When do you witness the breakdown of the relationship between an architect and a contractor who warns you at the beginning of the work that marriage should be guarded because love often breaks down on the construction site? After all, I stopped looking at the masters with prejudice. Each of them is an untold story and it helps me not to lose my nerve but to watch a play composed of our anecdotes in my home. And then that show began to come true. I finally wrote that drama from the drawer of ideas and it looked pretty good. However, as things are unpredictable on every construction site, including the one on paper, this drama has also been adapted. Just when everything settled down and started to entertain us, an earthquake occurred in the midst of a pandemic. After 22.3. In 2020 in Zagreb, the masters gained some metaphorical weight. Taught by my construction frustrations and exaltations, I threw myself into a new version of the story that overlapped with my life in an earthquake-damaged apartment and the traumas that opened up throughout the city. They say it’s best to write from experience, and for me it’s never been a better time to finally write down my story about the masters.
