PLAY: MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS

Saturday, May 19, 2018

Starts at: 20:00

Venue: Corinthia Baška Hotel

The play Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, by producer and lead actor Roman Šušković-Stipanović, owes its popularity to all the funny and entertaining examples from real life, in which members of the audience can easily recognize either themselves or their partners.
Apart from this straightforward identification of the members of the audience with various marital issues and situations, the play also offers a number of possible solutions to overcoming misunderstandings and avoiding frustration and dissatisfaction with the “other party’s” unexpected behavior.

ENSO BY LEON ZAKRAJŠEK EXHIBITION

Exhibition opening ceremony

Friday, May 18, 2018

Starts at: 19:00

Venue: Zvonimir Gallery

The Slovenian-Croatian artist Leon Zakrajšek is truly a black sheep on the Croatian visual arts scene. This graphic artist, educated in Japan, specializes in the Japanese printmaking techniques moku hanga, sumi-e and other traditional Japanese graphic techniques, which he studied with the most renowned Japanese artists, including the famous lithographer Harumi Sonoyama and the great woodblock printmakers Fumio Kitaoka and Yuki Rei. Ensō is the Japanese word for “circle” and an eternal motif in the Japanese visual arts, which intrigues Leon greatly because of its refined simplicity and extremely important role in the East Asian graphic and painting tradition. In the Zen Buddhism paintings it symbolizes the central moment of mind freeing itself of the body and the soul becoming a creative force.

BELLMEN OF ZAMET

Friday, May 18, 2018

Starts at: 20:00

Venue: Palada

On Shrove Monday in the year of our Lord 1968, the first zvončari or bellmen appeared almost spontaneously in Zamet, accompanying masked villagers on their egg hunt. They were dressed differently than today, and it wasn’t until 1971 that the bellmen of Zamet started dressing up like they do nowadays. Why do they look the way they do? Since of all the bellmen groups, they lived the closest to the sea, they turned to the Vikings for inspiration in making their masks. Nowadays, every bellman wears a short-sleeved blue-and-white striped T-shirt, white pants with a red stripe, a red bandana around his neck, thick wool stockings and sturdy boots. His back is covered in sheepskin and there is a single large bell tied to his lower back. He carries a mačuka, a mace of sorts, and wears a helmet covered in sheepskin and two large antlers on top of it.

STREET ART BY CRNA OVCA

Saturday, May 19, 2018

Starts at: 11:00

Venue: Mrgar

The black sheep will be able to roam the streets of Baška, getting to know more about land art, a rather creative way of expressing oneself using completely natural materials out in the open. The well-known Osijek resident with a master’s degree in sculpture, Nikola Faller, and members of his Slama Association will be using straw as the authentic sculpting material to build straw sculptures. And so, dear black sheep, keep your cigarette lighters away from the artwork!

SHEEP SHEARING PRESENTATION

Saturday, May 19, 2018

Starts at: 15:00

Venue: Stara riva

This year, the sheep farmers will approach sheep shearing with more determination and passion than the state tax collection agency doing your tax reviews. Eventually, though, our sheep will breathe a sigh of relief as they will no longer be so hot.
