The play “The Blue Flower Fairy Tale” is characterised by the insistence on the “visual” layer of the play (masks and costumes of vibrant colours, colourful curtains, magnified flowers, etc.) and the “recognisability” of the plot (which was created on the basis of famous fairy tale motifs). The visual layer in the play is indeed more pronounced than in the previous performances of the Maska i Pokret theatre: instead of developed, “psychologically” determined characters – recognisable types are present here (Magician, Snake, Sun, etc.) – characters who present themselves in episodic situations, thus creating an exotic world from children’s imagination.
The show wants to evoke the impression of a “revived picture book” with all its elements (not only the mask but also the precise movement and the scenographic elements). We wanted to make a simple, stylistic ‘clean’ play, inspired by backyard plays from childhood, fantasy and “folk” atmosphere, a show that requires the least technical conditions.
