Sláva Daubnerová M.H.L.
Documentary monodrama inspired by the private and professional life and work of the first professional female theatre director Magda Husáková-Lokvencová.nn“She was a woman- director in the environment which tolerated it but considered it a bizarre exception. She was a promising artist, but married to a man, who was, for some period, a high political official, then a political prisoner and after her death even the president of the normalised Czechoslovakia- Gustáv Husák. She was a progressively thinking intellectual, and later a quited theatre artist, during the period when politics started to press the neck of art and made their relationship a comrade – like, mutually profitable coexistance. Based on the archive materials about complicated and tragic life of this untill recently almost forgotten artist, the notable Slovak artist and performer Sláva Daubnerová sews for herself a made to measure new story of this documentary drama.” Maja HriešiknnStage concept, written, directed and performed by: Sláva Daubnerová Dramaturgy and sound design: Pavel Graus Video art: Lukáš Kodoň Choreography: Emil Leeger nCamera: Ivo Miko, Peter TomannEditor: František KrahenbielnEnglish translation: Julia Sherwood nOpening night: 22nd of December 2009 Studio 12, Bratislava Producer: P.A.T.platform for contemporary theatre and Štúdio 12, Bratislava Opening night: 22nd of December 2009 Studio 12, Bratislava Financial support: Ministry of Culture of the Slovak RepublicnnAwards: Newcomer of the season 2010 in Dosky Awards, Nomination in category The Best Production of the season in Dosky Awards, Anniversary prize of the Literary Foundation for direction and acting 2010nnSelected festivals: 46th Borštnikovo srečanje Maribor Theatre Festival 2011, 19thInternational theatre festival Divadlo 2011 Plzeň, 16thInternational Festival of Theatre for One Actor in Cheb – Biennial 2011, International theatre festival Bezgranic/Bez hranic 2010 in Cieszyn, International theatre festival Čtyri dny / Four days 2010, Prague, Nová drama / New drama festival 2010 Bratislava, International theatre festival Divadelná Nitra 2010, Open air music festival Bažant Pohoda 2010 Trenčín, Touches & Connections theatre festival 2010 Martin, ArtWife festival 2018 Liptovský Mikuláš
