The Stara mestna elektrarna is an iconic building in Ljubljana that will celebrate its 120th anniversary next year. Its chimney is one of the city’s landmarks. Elektrarna leads a double life – it is still the electric heart of Ljubljana, but at the same time also serves as a theatre. Sometimes though, its theatre role is somehow invisible, hidden deep in its bowels. Therefore, we have decided in cooperation with Elektro Ljubljana to mark our presence in Elektrarna from the outside as well. And what better way to do it than with art?
Daniel Wetzel is a member of the Rimini Protokoll, a well‑known art collective visiting us already with their fifth project. Wetzel, Stefan Kaegi, and Helgard Kim Haug founded the collective following their common experience at the Giessen Institute for Applied Theatre Studies. They are known as (co)founders of the reality theatre trend – using various innovative theatrical approaches, their works provide new perspectives of what we perceive as reality.
Bojan Djordjev was a guest of the 2015 Mladi levi with Not Red, But Blood, a performance of partisan, revolutionary and communist poetry. This year, he is visiting with Laura Kalauz, Maja Leo and Christopher Kriese.

She is currently finishing a PhD on the political potential of interactivity. She particularly looks at live art after the Arab uprisings. Tania is a co-founder of the urban research and live art collective Dictaphone Group.
With her fourth appearance at the festival, we can really call Ivana Müller a Mladi levi artist. Every time, she succeeds in preserving her poetics, which is based on a dance‑theatre approach with a good sense of different narratives and humor, and with sophisticated ideas that often begin with a single thought, such as »how heavy are my thoughts«.
