The Republic of Slovenia IS opening Malta Festival in Poznan, Poland
June 17 and 18 at 19.00

The identity of this year's Malta Festival Poznań comprises five slogans: We, the People; We, the Balkans; We, the East; We, Europe; We, Others. Each can be interpreted in two ways. The first underlines the unity and homogeneity of the subject it refers to, and the second, on the contrary, juxtaposes the two subjects and suggests their polarity. The first makes a generalization, the second arbitrarily delineates borders. Both philosophy and experience prove that those two practices not only do not work, but also pose a danger. This is why we openly cross them out.

The Republic of Slovenia, joint production by Mladinsko Theatre and Maska has won the award for the best performance of the Festival The Week of Slovenian Drama. After winning the special jury award at the national theatre festival in Maribor, this is the second award for the Republic of Slovenia, a performance made by the group of anonymous authors.
