Although the tradition of theatre in Koper goes back to the times of the Venetian Republic in the 15th century, Koper Theatre is the second youngest professional theatre in Slovenia. It was established in 2001. Being the only theatre in the coastal region of Slovenia, its programme is praised for the theatre's stagings of comedies as well as performances for children.

The theatre is the main co-producer of the Primorska Summer Festival, which during the 1990s was actually its spiritual predecessor. Since 2003, together with Obalne galerije - Coastal Galleries the theatre publishes the Gledga magazine on cultural events in the city.

Programme

Koper Theatre annually presents a programme of around 6 premières, which include stagings of classical texts as well as contemporary dramatic texts. Some of the works include the first Slovene presentations of newe dramatic works by national and foreign authors, such as Jeroen van den Berg's Blowing [Podžig] (2009) and Fausto Paravidino's La malattia della famiglia M [Bolezen familije M] (2010). The programme also includes dramatisations of Slovene novels and a number of successful stagings of comedy works: Divorce Agency [Agencija za ločitve] (2001), directed by Katja Pegan, Duohtar pod mus!, directed by Vito Taufer and co-produced with Slovene National Theatre Nova Gorica, the first staging of Desa Muck's Christmas Evening [Božični večer] (2008), etc. The theatre also produces performances for children and youth, often marked by employing different art genres and media, such as Zlatko Krilić's The Egg [Jajce] (2007), The Girl Behind the Mirror [Deklica za ogledalom] (2009), directed by Yulia Roschina, the dance fairy tale Beauty and the Beast [Lepotica in zver] (2008), etc.

Festivals

The theatre co-produces the Primorska Summer Festival, an international theatre festival that takes place throughout the coastal region of Slovenia and occasionally also in Italy and Croatia.

It also takes part in producing the Slovene Puppetry Biennial. The company has recently begun co-operating with the Portorož Auditorium and with the University of Primorska.

The theatre's productions regularly appear at Slovene theatre festivals and have received awards at the Days of Comedy festival in Celje, the Borštnik Theatre Festival, and at the Slovene Festival of Chamber Theatre (SKUP) in Ptuj. Although the theatre's ensemble comprises mainly guest actors, the artists often receive awards for their achievements in Koper Theatre productions.

Collaborations

Koper Theatre also hosts several performances by Ljubljana City Theatre (MGL), Slovene National Theatre Nova Gorica, Slovene National Theatre Drama Ljubljana, Špas Theatre, Prešeren Theatre Kranj, and others, as well as enters a number of co-productions with these theatres.

Venue

In 2009 the building of Koper Theatre was renovated in the frame of the project Cultural Revival of City Core, funded through the Norwegian Financial Mechanism, as part of the effort to promote economic and social cohesion in the EU member states.
