Konj Puppet Theatre

Konj ("Horse") Puppet Theatre was established in 1993 by Silvan Omerzu, who studied fine arts in Ljubljana and then undertook puppet design and set design for puppet stages in Prague. At the outset he collaborated closely with Jan Zakonjšek in performances which were aimed at adult audiences as they were replete with macabre and obscene humour, oscillating between the noble, the grotesque and the lascivious, soapiness and aestheticism, the traditional and the contemporary. Since 2001 Silvan Omerzu continues with the performances based on carefully selected texts and innovative relations between the puppet and its animator.

To date Omerzu has received the Prešeren Foundation Award in 2006 and several Slovene and international puppetry awards. ). In 2010 only his performance Forbidden Loves, based on antique motifs, was awarded at the festivals in Hungary, Croatia and Bulgaria. In Summer 2015 an exhibition Loutky a automaty at the Castle Sovinec (CZ) offers a retrospective overview of Omerzu's site-specific puppet installations.

The performances have been co-produced with Cankarjev dom Culture and Congress Centre, Glej Theatre, Mladinsko Theatre, Ljubljana Puppet Theatre or Maribor Puppet Theatre.

The Domestic Research Society (DRS) was established in 2004 by visual artists Alenka Pirman and Damijan Kracina, and art historian Jani Pirnat. Under the motto "nothing of that which is domestic is alien to us" the society documents, collects, researches and presents domestic phenomena as installations, exhibitions or web projects related to the field of culture, art, science, conservation, and education.

Alongside an ongoing spoken Slovenian open online dictionary Razvezani jezik - The Unleashed Tongue, launched in 2004, the team has conceived several engaging visual arts projects, the Word for Word, Without Words, an interdisciplinary exhibition in City Art Gallery Ljubljana, or the most recent Animal Dance Macabre that commemorates the animals in the World War One.
