Based on the life and work of Karel Destovnik – Kajuh
Celje City Theatre

Karel Destovnik – Kajuh (1922–1944) was the only Slovenian cultural figure to be declared a national hero in 1953. He left behind an extensive oeuvre, which consists mainly of poetry. While for Slovenians today, the Partisan movement is the bittersweet recent history of the nation, the play’s authors wonder above all about a bygone, eternally young generation that was forced to take radical decisions and consciously transformed itself from naive youth into a voice of rebellion, a propaganda machine, a rabid dog. Even in the present, this voice resounds for a world that does not exist. Partisan songs are artefacts, they race through the forests, they appear as ghosts at celebrations, they echo among the mountains, and that is why the young creative team deals with them comprehensively, attentively and with an exemplary degree of respectful distance, which also introduces a critical view of the young generation on the challenges of modern age.
