6th Drama Festival

The Festival will take place from 25 to 31 May 2019.

We are pleased to share with you this year’s Drama Festival programme! The sixth Drama Festival is a celebration of outstanding poetics by some of the best European and Slovenian directors working in the European arena, thereby helping to spread the context of what is local or national in a specific theatre culture. As a follow-up to five brilliant Festival editions, you will be able to enjoy again the best performances presented by the theatres that the Drama has been cooperating with successfully. A special focus of this year’s Festival is a showcase of Croatian theatre, featuring several superb productions of the current season. Not only does the festival line-up include seven productions presented on the Main stage, it also introduces a preview of Female Outcasts, an original theatre project after Rudi Šeligo’s writings. Directed by Mirjana Medojević, the production will subsequently open the forthcoming theatre season on our Small stage. As before, performances will be accompanied by panel discussions on selected festival-relevant topics, post-show talks with the creators of the performances, and by traditional opening and closing concerts. Introducing the Audience Award for the best Festival production, we count on your input. Performances will be presented with Slovenian and English surtitles. Come and join us!
