The 6th Drama Festival (25 – 31 May)

We are pleased to announce the imminent opening of the 6th Drama Festival. The current festival edition 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. Seven carefully selected productions from Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Czech Republic, presented on the Main Stage, will compete for the best Festival production audience award, named after Jernej Šugman, a late principal member of our resident ensemble and a true legend of Slovenian theatre and film. Another special feature of this year’s Festival edition is a showcase of Croatian theatre and its finest productions of the current. The programme of the final Festival night includes a preview of Female Outcasts, an original theatre project after Rudi Šeligo’s writings. Directed by Mirjana Medojević, this brand-new production of the upcoming season 2019/20 will open at the end of September on the Small Stage. 

As in previous years, the main Festival programme is accompanied by post-show talks with the creators of the performances at the Drama forecourt, and panel discussions on festival-relevant topics and dialogues at the Drama Café Festival garden, as well as live music acts. The Festival presents also the closing event of Banana Peel Studies, an original theatre project by Nik Škrlec which ran in real and digital spaces as part of Drama Laboratory during the entire 2018/19 season.
