• William Shakespeare

    Titus Andronicus

    One of the most controversially understood plays by William Shakespeare. The current Croatian staging, directed by Igor Vuk Torbica, a progressive director of the younger generation, is driven by a reflection on the current state of the world, characterized by a mixture of fear and lethargy, comfort and uncertainty, in which we are dazed by irresistible consumerism and numbed by the violence that the media is bombarding us on a daily basis. Slovenian and English surtitles. 27 May at 19.00.

  • A Bitch

    The main subject of the play by Árpád Schilling and Éva Zabeezsinszkij is the role of women in society, which is inextricably linked to the role of men. What is a man to do with his testosterone once he no longer needs to hunt for food in the woods? And what is a woman to do when she is allowed to have the same professions as men, and take her own decision if she wants to have a baby or not? Slovenian and English surtitles. 28 May at 19.00.

    Mary’s Tears

    The more we think about Mary’s tears, the less they seem to present a certain experience in a dark, damp cottage deep in the Slovenian countryside, and increasingly we follow a fragment of Everyman’s story. PREMIERE 25 May at 22.00. 27 and 28 May at 22.00.

Upon being built, it was considered to be one of the most modern buildings in Ljubljana; today the mysterious atmosphere of the theatre workshops reigns in the former warehouse for scenery prompts, inspiring exploration and the development of artistic ideas and concepts.
