The performances of the 2022/2023 theater season were evaluated by a committee consisting of Tina Mahkota, Marija S. Leskovar and chairman of the Dnevnik Commission Gregor Butala. In the justification, they wrote that “Branko Jordan sensitively confronts the landscape of a deeply damaged character in the production of Pražovanje, which is completely marked by the trauma of childhood sexual abuse and the growing intolerance of maintaining appearances. He shapes Christian with a measured restraint, in which he gives a sense of both his fragility and vulnerability, arising from extreme existential emptiness, as well as all the violence of the effort when he decides to break the mirror of the repressed family secret in a radical revelation”.
“With precisely measured acting tools that rely more on a small gesture, a subdued voice tension or an anxious physical gesture than on recognizable outlines of psychological states, Branko Jordan gradually unfolds her role beyond the dimension of victim or abuser – unfolding her into a shocking image of an uprooted individual who shows himself also as a kind of medium in which the cracks of an increasingly loosened social reality, interwoven with mechanisms of control and power relations, in which final healing of the wounds is not even possible, are thickened.” they also wrote in the explanation.
