On 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, then six important men, presidents and ministers play with arms and human destinies around the round table, and finally a group of soldiers takes on a spy. 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.

Directed by Oliver Frljić

The performance Our Violence and Your Violence observes Europe naively stunned by the refugee crisis, Europe which willingly forgets its colonial past and as willingly closes its borders to thousands who run from the consequences of the American and European politics. The twentieth century seems like it has persistently worked on encouraging national narcissisms which taught one mass that it is better than the others. Twenty-first century continues with the same lessons, using the infallible weapon: fear.

On program again of 4th, 5th and 6th May at 19:30
Happy 2017
May all your shots be in focus and your transitions between close-ups and totals smooth.
