Cabaret
Conceived and directed by Maruša Oblak
Produced by Mladinsko Theatre
Opening night: May 30 2013

Tri prste pod popkom (Three Fingers Below the Belly Button) is a rude, shameless, utterly reprehensible affair. In other words: a must-see. The rambunctious cabaret, based on obscene Slovene folk poetry, marks the 2nd collaboration between director/actress Maruša Oblak and Silence.

Four deliciously mischievous poems were set to music by Silence. The songs, performed by the cast, are ebullient, campy and quite unsettling. Take Mother, for instance: this foot-tapping, seemingly innocuous ditty delivers a fatal blow to the good name of motherly love. The songs were recorded and produced in April and May 2013 at Daily Girl, Silence's private studio.
