The summer version of Freaky Friday comes with casual entertainment where you won’t be able to relax… If you prefer conceptual art, black humour, horror stories, horror movies or just bizarre celebrations, the July Friday 13th should be spent at no other place than Jedinstvo!
 
For this bizarre evening Kućni teatar Škripzikl will warm you up with their “Chansons form the graveyard”. The false count August Strahimir Listopadski brings stories from the obituaries underlined with vampire notes and an open oesophagus voice. Commercials from beyond the grave and chansons of the love of two corpses will be heard. The dark hits such as “The Damned Drone”, “Threw Wife in Sewer then Hung Himself”, “Sawing, Sawing”… will be performed.
 
The central part of the evening is reserved for the projection of the cult American horror “Freaks”. In the year 1932. Tod Browning made a film about a group of sideshow performers starring as themselves. The director who himself had worked in the circus in his young days, decided to hire physically deformed people for the parts of the honourable and the distinguished while the real monsters are presented by those who fit into physical norms, yet unite in plotting the death of one of the performers for inheritance. Real women with beards, Siamese twins, people without limbs, midgets… It was too much for the audiences of that time. In Great Britain, the film was banned for three decades, and censored scenes are lost forever.
 
At the July Freaky Friday, the winner of the short horror story contest, by the deliberation of the jury consisting of Ivica Đikić, Mario Kovač, Mima Simić, Želimir Periš and Ivan Kralj, will be announced and the story read.
 
The walls of Jedinstvo will carry the xxx-ray exhibition “This shouldn’t be inside”. We bring you x-ray images of those who were confused or who clumsily slipped: billiards which found the seventh hole, hair spray which was nowhere near hair or a bottle of one’s favourite drink giving the slogan (Enjoy Coca-Cola” a whole new meaning! Meet those who literary kept their jars of pickled veggies  “in cold and dark place”.
 
For the musical part of the party, our resident DJ Ivan Krželj (muzikfantastique) is in charge, and you will be glued to the video wall by Twisted Constrictor’s vintage circus collages . At midnight we will be cutting the birthday cake because our dear Octopus celebrates its first piercing birthday so expect candles and needles and gifts! The first one arrives from us: all visitors will receive complimentary Veli’s apple chips for pleasant snacking during the film.
