Established in 1997 by Nevenka Koprivšek, Bunker Institute is a non-profit organisation that mainly produces and presents contemporary theatre and dance performances. It organises one of the most noted Slovene international theatre and dance festivals, the Mladi levi ("Young Lions") Festival.

It also manages the performing arts venue Old Power Station in Ljubljana. The facilities are used for rehearsals, educational activities, and – naturally – also stage performances.


Stara Elektrarna venue

Since 2004, Bunker has been running the performing arts venue Stara Elektrarna - Old Power Station in Ljubljana. The programme consists of theatre and dance performance production, concerts, educational activities, and presentations of different art projects.

Productions

In its productions, Bunker focuses on works that employ innovative approaches, intertwine different art disciplines, as well as offer reflections on topical cultural, political and social issues.

Bunker has produced works by different performing arts and dance makers, such as Sanja Nešković Peršin, Jurij Konjar, Mala Kline, Magdalena Reiter and Jette Ostan Vejrup. In the period 1999–2014, Bunker was also the producer of the physical theatre group Betontanc, led by Matjaž Pograjc, and then Beton Ltd.

Artists represented by Bunker often tour international festivals.

Festivals

Since 1998, Bunker has been organising the annual international festival of theatre and dance Mladi levi. Taking place at the end of summer, the festival showcases groups and artists with distinctive and original ideas and disciplines from all over the world.

Together with the Second Grammar School in Maribor, in 2002, Bunker co-organised the first Drugajanje Festival, which aims to affirm contemporary dance and theatre art among the young with a programme of performances, workshops and lectures.

Projects

Bunker has developed several collaborative projects, one of them being the renovation and revival of the cultural house in Medana, a small city in Goriška region, where workshops have been organised in cooperation with the local community. Thus Medana became an international residency centre and also hosted the international festival Days of Poetry and Wine during the period 1995 to 2009.

Aiming to expand the existing notions of the function and meaning of art in general, in 2007 Bunker initiated the project Sy(e)nergy (Si(e)nergija) – an interdisciplinary open forum intended to a creative understanding of changes and stimulation of collaboration among artists, scientists and practitioners. Attempting to spark up a dialogue between the seemingly incompatible disciplines (art/science) and possibly provide answers to burning global issues, the project's events (lectures, round tables, presentations, films) focused on areas of electric energy, housing and transport.

International cooperation

Bunker has a long history of participating in various international cooperation and collaboration projects which have garnered support from different funding programmes of the European Commission (see the list of projects with links to descriptions in the right-hand column). It is (or was) a member of the following international networks: Junge Hunde, Theorem, International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts (IETM) and its satellite subgroup Balkan Express, and Danse Bassin Mediterranéen – DBM.

Further, Bunker collaborated in the international project Sites of Imagination, led by Alkantara, Lisbon (PT) and co-organised by Carovana, Cagliari (IT), L'Officina, Marseille (FR), L'Animal a l'Esquena, Girona (ES). Supported by the European Commission, the project focused on the cultural development of the Mediterranean region through exchange and cultural dialogue. Although primarily a research project, which included a number of artists from different countries and artistic disciplines, the project resulted in the performance Début – In Memory of Coming by the dancer and choreographer Mala Kline, which premièred in 2007 in Girona, Spain.

In 2009 Bunker joined the project Sostenuto – thinking culture as a factor of economic and social innovation, launched by Expeditio – Center for Sustainable Spatial Development, which aimed at reinforcing the capacities of economic and social innovation from the cultural sector in the Mediterranean space by accompanying its transformation towards new economic and social models. Within the framework of the project in December 2010, the Ready to Change Forum was hosted in Ljubljana by Bunker.
