The Slovenian Theatre Institute (SLOGI) was founded in 2014 as a successor of the National Theatre Museum of Slovenia, which was founded in 1952. The Institute is engaged in collecting, preserving, documenting, researching, interpreting, presenting and promoting Slovenian theatre culture, performing arts heritage as well as contemporary theatre practices, both at the national and international level.

The Institute organizes exhibitions and presents virtual exhibitions, publishes books from the field of theatre, organizes various events (symposia, round tables, lectures, etc.) and educational activities, houses theatre performances, etc. In November 2015 SLOGI has launched a monthly Slovenian Theatre News.

History

The National Theatre Museum of Slovenia was established in 1952 under the aegis of the Slovene National Theatre in Ljubljana, to mark the 60th anniversary of the Provincial Theatre in Ljubljana. The museum's first director was Janko Traven, who collected an enormous amount of material from the early periods of Slovene theatrical history. The museum was also supported by private donors. Janko Traven's successor Dušan Moravec began to organise the collected material more systematically, and in 1964 the museum began issuing various publications, including Letopis or The Repertoire of Slovene Theatres (to mark the 100th anniversary of Ljubljana Drama Society) and the magazine Documents of the Slovene Theatre Museum, which continues to be published biannually today. The Repertoire has been recently digitalised and included in the Sigledal.org - Slovene theatre portal.

In 1978 the Theatre Museum merged with the Film Museum to become the National Theatre and Film Museum, and in 1990 this institution acquired new display rooms and an office space at Mestni trg in Ljubljana's Old Town. However, in August 1996 the museum was divided into two independent institutions – the National Theatre Museum of Slovenia and the Slovenian Cinematheque. In 2014 the Slovenian Theatre Institute was founded as a successor of the National Theatre Museum of Slovenia.

Departments

The iconotheque collects posters, costume design drafts, programmes, portraits, and plans, as well as plans and photographs of theatre sets, while the videotheque collects, preserves, and facilitates internal study access to recordings of theatre productions.

The Slovenian Theatre Institute Archive comprises personal documents, correspondence, legal and self-management acts, manuscript and typed texts, albums and collected newspaper reviews, plus thematically-arranged archive material on Slovene theatres, in particular legal and self-management acts, circulars, decrees and minutes of meetings. There is also a collection of articles relating to dramatic productions, opera, ballet, film, and experimental theatre covering the period 1963–1996.

A list of precisely catalogued premières in Slovene theatres that were published since 1867 and later developed into a database that covers the entire history of Slovene professional and experimental theatre was digitalised and put online in collaboration with the Sigledal.org - Slovene theatre portal that features also the digital collections and virtual exhibitions prepared by the Institute.

See also the article about the Slovenian Theatre Institute Library.

Exhibitions and international projects

In December 2013 a permanent exhibition entitled In pursuit of a theatre. From the jesuits to Cankar was opened at the Institute premises. The exhibition presents the beginnings and the main development of theatre in Slovenia, its integration into European cultural context and its role in shaping Slovenian national awareness.

The museum has organised various exhibitions also in other galleries. In 2006 it cooperated with Municipal Museum of Radovljica in preparing the Anton Tomaž Linhart Memorial Room.

The e-exhibitions are prepared in collaboration with the Sigledal.org - Slovene theatre portal. Thus the Alenka Bartl, our renowned costume designer's exhibition at the National Gallery of Slovenia got its digitalised variant.

Since 2013, SLOGI has created some further digital galleries that feature recent award-winning productions from the Maribor Theatre Festival and the winners of the Borštnik Ring Award and Borštnik Awards. Referential documentary photos, video and audio excerpts are collected in collaboration with Prodok teater TV, Slovene theatre houses and RTV Slovena and regional archives, they are accessible to wide public on the Sigledal.org - Slovene theatre portal

Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space

In 2003 the museum organised the presentation of a costume from the Oedipus Rex production of the Slovene National Theatre Opera and Ballet Ljubljana at the Prague Quadrennialof Performance Design and Space (PQ). In 2011 the four authors presented in Prague were: Ema Kugler, Dunja Zupančič, and Miha Turšič in the section Countries and Regions, curated by Tomaž Toporišič; while a costume from A Journey to Rome (Caravaggio) (produced by Slovene National Theatre Maribor) created by Belinda Radulović was part of the Extreme Costume Design Section.

The PQ 2015 features the installation based on the set design by Meta Grgurevič and JAŠA for the ballet Tristan and Isolde (the national Opera and Ballet production of 2014) and on the costumes designed by Ana Savić Gecan for the performance Storm Still (SNG Drama Ljubljana), curated by Barbara Novakovič Kolenc. SLOGI has collaborated also with the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana and the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television (AGRFT) that prepare an installation for the PQ Student Section.

Theatre architecture

In the period 2008–2011 the National Theatre Museum collaborated in a complex international project entitled Theatre Architecture in Central Europe (TACE) led by the Theatre Institute in Pargue. In spring 2009 Ljubljana hosted around 70 architecture students in the introductory workshop Visions and Possibilities organised by Vojteh Ravnikar's seminar at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana. Afterwards the students developed their own visions of a potential new Slovene National Theatre building for the given location in the Ljubljana city centre with their tutors at their home universities (in Bratislava, Brno, Budapest, Gdańsk, Gliwice, Liberec, Ljubljana, and Prague). Later they revealed their ideas at an exhibition in Autumn 2009 at Ljubljana City Hall and in a catalogue.

In November 2009 a symposium on experimental theatre spaces was held in Ljubljana, followed by a publication Occupying Spaces. The extensive TACE exhibition Beyond Everydayness – Theatre Architecture in Central Europe that has toured Budapest, Prague, Warsaw, and Bratislava was hosted by the Museum of Architecture and Design in Ljubljana along with an accompanying publication synthesizing a pioneer research in the field of theatre architecture.


European Route of Historic Theatres

As a kind of follow-up SLOGI joined another EU supported project for the period 2012–2017: European Route of Historic Theatres organised by Perspectiv, Association of Historical Theatres of Europe based in Berlin, hand-in-hand with the partners from 12 countries. The Adriatic Route of Historic Theatres comprises also the historical buildings of the SNG Maribor and SNG Drama Ljubljana. In the period 2015–2017 a touring exhibition "The history of Europe - told by its theatres" was presented at theatre museums in Warsaw, Kopenhagen, Vienna, Munich, Ljubljana and London.
