Toni Soprano: THE WALL (SI)

August 27, 2017
Old Power Station-Elektro Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia

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?

Ivana Müller: PARTITUUR (FR, HR)

August 19 and 20, 2017
Projektni prostor DUM, Ljubljana, Slovenia

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«.
