We often walk by Mr. Single. In a world of his own. His head slightly
bowed, contemplating the geometry of his steps. Unchanged for years. The
geometry of everyday. Even eagerly awaited Sundays do not affect the pattern
of his weeks. Sunday, the day when clocks slow down and time expands.
The day when Mr. Single becomes Don Quixote standing before the windmills
of solitude. His lance is his imagination, spurred by the banal. Radio,
newspapers, television. His shield is his longing for that "ideal something",
the Dulcinea of his heart and soul. Both lance and shield fall before
the abyss of the invincible, relentless and galloping Monday. The sounds
of this lonely battle, a battle he cannot win, become a signifying and
generally recognizable language. Mr. Single becomes "Mr. Single". Zeljko
Vukmirica as Mr. Single, delivers this story without a plot, this speech
without words, in a journey through time and space with eruptive energy.
Offering us a geometry of universal solitude.
"EXIT has produced yet another hit of high artistic standards, a show
whose honesty goes straight to the head … Vukmirica's one-an show, the
interaction of a man and his solitude, is a virtuoso treat of a performance
which once again proves that real theatre can be devoid off everything,
but an actor. And naturally, an audience!"
V. Kolarovic, Glas Istre
Using his acting powers alone and a made up language, the master of acting
Vukmirica has produced and unusual, powerful, and most of all, disturbing
show." Z. Ciglar, Vecernji List
"The performances on EXPO in two days have attracted so much attention,
that people wanted an extra seat." Jutarnji List
