Director: Primož Ekart
Theatre adventure
Director Primož Ekart based the theatre adventure Brainstorm on the eponymous dramatic text by Ned Glaiser and Emily Lim. The original text was conceived by the London Production Company Three in collaboration with thirteen teenage actors. Its idea stemmed from the latest scientific discoveries in neuroscience or rather findings how the brain function in adolescent years differs from that in adult years. There are apparently 86 billion of neurons triggering a wide range of daily changes during this fragile period of development, enabling at the same time an explosion of youthful creativity, boldness, excitement and courage.

Doctor Faustus
Grajsko gledališče
Length 60 min
Milan Klemenčič, based on 18th Century motifs
Director: Jelena Sitar
Puppetheque performance
The tale of a scholar who sold his soul to the devil has been inspiring European art for centuries. Today, the most famous reworking of the motif is considered to be the German legend based on Dr Johannes Faust, a historical figure from the early 16th century, whose life grew into a folk legend through German oral tradition, becoming the subject of countless retellings and interpretations. Milan Klemenčič adapted the Leipzig version of the puppet play and staged it in 1938 in his own Miniature Puppets Theatre. Get into the spirit of the great master and enjoy a puppetry masterpiece, which was revived by Ljubljana Puppet Theatre in 1982.

In the back of Time
Tunnel LGL
Length 35 min
Meta Grgurevič, Urša Vidic
Multimedia show
This multi-media spatial installation of moving images, structures, music, light and performance, entitled as In the Back of Time, was conceived based on the motifs from the novel To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf, in a close collaboration between a range of renowned artists from various fields of contemporary art. Quite unusually, we will enter instead of a regular auditorium, a tunnel, or the Lutkovno gledališče Ljubljana backstage, extending as far as the castle hill. We will be led through this spatial installation by music, words and sounds that will capture the story's atmosphere and thus shed light on its process of creation, intimate relations within a family and the dimension of time. in Slovene and English

Length 90 min
Lutz Hübner
Director: Jaša Koceli
Dramatic performance
The performance Nellie Goodbye is a glimpse behind the curtain, revealing a creative collective, which invites the audience to be present at its band's rehearsals. It is a story about a torn, obstinate and individualistic generation, which although desperately trying to create together, keeps stumbling either into its own barriers or the ones brought about by fate, into which it is stuck. A disease thwarts the youthful plans, forcing the members of the band to reconsider their decisions.

Lotte Faarup
Director: Anja Suša
Dramatic performance
Once We Got Lost is an astonishing, poetical and touching story about growing up far too quickly, written by the Danish playwright and stage director Lotte Faarup. It is a story about two children, who try to save their parents’ marriage and eventually get lost in the chaos of the grownups’ quarrels. The drama features a divorce as seen through children’s eyes, discussing freely, frankly and vividly what is actually happening behind the doors of the children’s room, when a war between the separated parents in raging in front of them, when the family idyll is replaced by jealousy, hidden aggression, fury and despair. Suddenly faced with a world that turns upside down, the two children (brother and sister) deal with their losses and stormy feelings in their own way.

The Right to be a Human, Illustration: Lea Zupančič
Director: Mare Bulc
A Theatre Laboratory
On 10th December 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, outlining basic rights of any human being regardless of race, religion, economic status or any other variable, defining the human being with regard to the context, into which he or she is born and/or in which he or she lives. The declaration presents one of the foundations of the society after the Second World War, written with an intention to prevent the horrors that caused the havoc in the world in the first half of the 20th century happening ever again. 70 years later, the time has come to see in what way the Declaration is integrated in the modern society and how well young people know it and understand it.

The Rite of Spring, Illustration: Lea Zupančič
Igor Stravinski
Director: Matjaž Farič
A Puppet Rite
The Rite of Spring belongs among the most frequently performed dance pieces. The work is a myth in itself, which it became immediately after its world premiere in Theatre Champs-Élysées in 1913. Even though it blended into the Western perception about the wild and pagan barbarians from the East, it managed to move the boundaries of thinking (as far as both its music and choreography are concerned) beyond mere decorativeness. The stormy reactions that followed its premiere failed to override a significant breakaway from the ruling ballet convention – both in terms of what was believed at that time »of the ball« movement and the use of the orchestra, which in some parts acts like a single rhythm section. The music by Russian composer Igor Stravinsky is so dramatically dynamic and determined that it provokes a feeling of the pagan ritual and violence of nature – the human nature, in particular.
