Love arises when one speaks, which is why conversations often deal with this major topic. To talk about love gives one pleasure. Likewise, theatre is love too. Exploring what appears unattainable within theatre brings about a new polyphony of thinking that may bring closer to something more tangible. Love is the feeling of lack which tries to fill up with theatre. 11 December at 20.00.
Karam's play is set in a basement tenement apartment in Manhattan’s Chinatown where the Blakes' Thanskgiving dinner is presented in real time without no intermissions. Gradually we learn about the problems of a troubled lower-middle-class American family, presented in juicy, occasionally sarcastic and tragicomic dialogues. 12 and 13 December at 19.30.
Alice believes in magic, not in trickery and spells, but in the light that spills through the window into the room, illuminating the shiny particles in the air, the golden leaves that give us the will to live. She believes in the power of sudden happiness, momentarily granting everything a form of sense and order which breaks down in the next moment. 13 December at 20.00 and 14 December at 18.00.
Songs from the Other Bank. 22 December at 19.00.
The Main Stage in the more than hundred year-old Austro-Hungarian building has served exclusively for the staging of performances in the Slovenian language since 1919. At present, following numerous renovations, the auditorium which consists of the stalls, the circle, boxes, and the balcony can seat 436 visitors.
The Small Stage, after the renovation in 2013, still ensures safe and pleasant working conditions and an improved atmosphere for visitors. The attractive interior consists of 100 seats, a larger foyer, a new entrance, a new elevator enabling access for disabled people in wheelchairs, a new staircase, etc.
