KUD C3 Society for Culture and Arts

updated 34 hours ago

The KUD C3 Society for Culture and Arts, established in 2000, is a platform for the research of urban public spaces. The main focuses of KUD C3 are the communities in urban environments and the relationship that inhabitants have to the space they live in. In their projects, KUD C3 chooses key places in urban environments and tries to involve the local community in transforming the socially-conditioned habitat. The projects take into account the architectural, economical, cultural, or gender-based characteristics of a certain urban settlement. The research of trends in urban studies focuses on interventions in public spaces in Slovenia (Ljubljana, Koper) and abroad (Central European cities, Mexico City). Members of KUD C3 include architects, media artists, photographers, theorists, writers, and more.

In Memoriam Prof. Peter Hafner Festival

updated 2 days ago

The In Memoriam Prof. Peter Hafner Festival was first organised under this name in 2009, as a successor of sorts to the "Alter-Fest" that first appeared in 2005 at the Rdeča ostriga Club. In the beginning, Alter-Fest took place for only one evening and its line-up more or less consisted of punk bands. In the years to come, the festival widened its musical scope, forming a more varied and well-recognised programme. This development was partly due to the guidance of and help from Peter Hafner, a local music enthusiast, DJ, cultural activist, and mathematics professor, who unfortunately passed away in 2009. Thus, Alter-Fest got a new name.

The Slovene National Theatre Drama Ljubljana launched its Drama Festival in 2014 with the première of the new performance Marina Abramović or How I Lost My Way to Antigone produced by the Anton Podbevšek Theatre, Novo mesto and the Slovene National Theatre Drama Ljubljana. The 2015 edition opened with the performance Trieste, a City at War a co-production by the Slovene Permanent Theatre in Trieste and the associations Il Rossetti and Casa del Lavoratore, Trieste.

The programme of Drama Festival comprises a few selected productions of Slovene theatre houses as well as some outstanding performances from theatres in Croatia and Serbia. Thus it has presented the Zagreb Gavella Drama Theatre and Croatian National Theatre, the Novi Sad Theatre, Serbia, as well as the Croatian National Theatre in Split. Next to post-performance talks with actors and directors, panel discussions focused on Ivan Cankar's dramatic work, or recent interpretations of Hamlet. Round tables tackled the approaches to modern adaptations of classic dramatic texts and literary prose, and the staging of Japanese modern Nô plays.

Deuje babe Festival

updated 6 days ago

The Deuje babe Festival was set up by C.M.A.K. Cerkno in 2013 as a way to commemorate the International Women's Day. As such, it runs a programme that aims to forefront the work and position of women in society, presenting their artistic and cultural endeavours and promoting gender equality and feminist standpoints. Of a similar nature is also the Ljubljana based International Feminist and Queer Festival Red Dawns, which occasionally acts as a co-producer and takes place at roughly the same time.

The name of the festival is derived from a local archaeological site, where – so goes local folklore – wild hags (deuje babe) used to live. Besides C.M.A.K., the festival sometimes takes place also at the Film Theatre Idrija and some other venues in the region.
