A performance commemorating the 25th anniversary of Slovenian independence

This is a performance The Republic of Slovenia. In it, a retired intelligence officer tells a story about counting millions, then six important men ponder the fate of Slovenia which is turning into a mafia state, and in the end soldiers of character deal with a spy of character. This is a performance The Republic of Slovenia. It has been running for twenty-five years and it has been produced with your money. And all this time you have been – as an extra or as a big player – its part.

Our citizen duty is to look at the post-independence period; at the time when dreams were no longer sufficient or allowed.

All the authors of the performance will remain anonymous. In this context, the individual simply isn’t important. What is important is the stat(ur)e.

Let's shed light on the foundations of our young Republic and rekindle our patriotic feelings.

Butnskala as a cult radio drama and a recording, rewound so often that it made cassette players burn out, and Butnskala as a graphic novel drawn by Marko Derganc in 2014, have become the starting point and the base for an original theatre performance directed by Vito Taufer, probably the biggest connoisseur of Emil Filipčič’s opus, as well as its top director. At  the Mladinsko Theatre and the Prešeren Theatre Kranj we’re convinced that this is the high, and the right, time for the first professional staging of Butnskala and that ever since it was first created until today, the only thing that has changed is that the situation regarding the butnglavci is direr and more acute. The events in this (no longer) radio play link easily, and almost eerily, not only to the past, but also to the present, although in completely different social and political circumstances. Which is unfortunate, of course, although the performance will certainly make us laugh until we cry.   

The performance opened the 46th Week of Slovenian Drama in Kranj.
