The Drama Festival premiered at the end of the 2013/14 season. In the following six years it soon won national and international recognition. Initially, it showcased a selection of productions by Slovenian theatres. However, it soon grew to include international productions and sparked the interest of many theatres from the wider region. The sixth edition of the festival upgraded the non-competitive festival character by launching the Jernej Šugman Award for the best performance selected by the festival audience. The first Jernej Šugman Award was won by The Power of Darkness, produced by the National Theatre in Belgrade, Serbia, directed by the untimely deceased Igor Vuk Torbica. The 7th Drama Festival was scheduled to take place at the end of the 2019/20 season but was unfortunately cancelled due to the corona virus epidemic. This is why we announce again the 7th Drama Festival edition. May it bring a most successful theatre season to all theatre companies and may the ending of the upcoming season see us once again celebrating theatre the way we like it most.
