programme in ,
Nowadays the main street-theatre organisation in Slovenia, Ana Monró Theatre was founded by the well-known poet and actorand interdisciplinary artist as an independent theatre group. Primarily engaged in improvisational, music, and humour theatre, GAM quickly became known for its caustic humour (known as the Monró humour), a wide range of references, collective work and, of course, involvement of the audience. Since 2012, working as an association engaged in production, festival activities, international networking and education, GAM has throughout the years developed into a widely acclaimed street-theatre actor and producer.
GAM creates two larger-scale international productions biannually. Aiming to address the widest audiences possible and to throw a new light on how the city is perceived, GAM's current productions follow the trends in contemporary street theatre by creating ambitious site-generic performances that bring together international teams of performers and producers.
In 2007, GAM launched ŠUGLA, a school of contemporary performance and street theatre, to stimulate the development of the Slovene street theatre scene and its production. Taught by renowned tutors and recently collaborating closely with Glej Theatre, the programme provides training in different fields of improvisation and street theatre as well as ample opportunities for younger makers to work with renowned practitioners, present their work to wider audiences and network.
GAM is the co-organiser of the international conference SAWA – Street Arts Winter Academy that started in 2011 and is dedicated to the fast developing field of education and training in street arts. Professionals from the field meet, exchange knowledge and discuss how to facilitate the development of methodologies and approaches to art practice and cooperation. GAM is also the initiator of the European Federation of Education and Training in Street Arts (founded in 2015) and, since 2001, a member of the Circostrada, European Network for Circus Arts and Street Arts.
GAM has been organising the biggest street theatre festival in Slovenia, the Ana Desetnica International Street Theatre Festival, since 1998.
