The View from the Tips of the Toes, HNK Ivana pl Zajca, Spring 2015
June 16th 2015 was in many ways a historic date for TRY theatre. The first major collaboration (with the Rijeka School of Ballet and Dance and I.M. Ronjgov Music School) opened and, what is more, it opened at the Croatian National Theatre in Rijeka! Two nights of sold-out house (566 people each night) and a wonderful medley of almost 100 young dancers, actors and musicians from Rijeka and the area. The piece, The View from the Tips of the Toes, asks the question which branch of art is more important: the written word or fine arts? Embodied through the two muses and their helpers, the question is never fully settled, but excellent arguments are posed for both cases.
Directed by Tina Zubović of the Ballet School, the piece masterfully combined music, dance and acting in a sequence of choreographed scenes. The text is the work of Ivan Verunica of TRY theatre, and many more tireless teachers from the Dance School and Music School took part in bringing the complex piece together.
