Formally organised since 1998 by the Ana Monró Theatre, Ana Desetnica International Street Theatre Festival is the biggest festival of street theatre and improvisation arts in Slovenia. Annually held at the beginning of summer in over 10 cities across Slovenia, the festival offers different street art genres and other performances by renowned and emerging practitioners.

Ana Monró Theatre also organises two further festivals, the autumn Ana Plamenita and the winter Ana Mraz festival.


Programme

Aiming to explore the nature of street interventions and to advocate for the free use of public space, the Ana Desetnica festival runs a diversified international programme of street arts related events, ranging from theatre, circus and dance performances, live sculptures, site-specific and site-generic performances, and installations to different workshops and initiatives for international cooperation. Offering ample opportunities to young practitioners to show their work and network, the festival supports the development of original theatre forms and encourages experimentation within the disciplines. Of the 250 to 400 artists who participate in the festival, 60 % are international guests who travel short and long distances from their countries to perform in Slovenia in front of audiences that total around 40,000 people each year. Since 1996, part of the festival's programme also appears at Lent Festival in Maribor.

Ana Desetnica regularly engages in international networking and co-production projects at the European level, through its participation in the projects Circostrada, Eunetstar, and Meridians, whose combined member organisations represent over 30 countries, thus offering opportunities to Slovene practitioners to tour abroad and share their knowledge and expertise of the field.

Ana Destnica Festival has recently launched an award for outstanding achievements in street theatre, called urbANA ljubljANA, in partnership with Mirabilia Circus & Performing Arts Festival.

Festival's offsprings – Ana Mraz and Ana Plamenita

Since 2000 Ana Monró Theatre, in cooperation with the Ljubljana Tourist Board, organises performances and other street art related events also during the winter holiday season. In the frame of Ana Mraz (in English: Ana Frost) it presents its newest productions in the Ljubljana city centre just before New Year's, and also invites different domestic and international groups and authors. Part of the programme is also presented in other Slovenian cities.

In 2009, Ana Monró Theatre launched Ana Plamenita (in English: Ana Blaze), a festival of night and fire ambiances, focusing on fire and light installations and interventions that turn the ignored corners of the city into magical ambiances.

Since 2013 Ana Plamenita is organised also in Maribor, where it is run by Narodni dom Maribor and House! Society for People and Spaces.
