Ana Desetnica International Street Theatre Festival

Category: Event Related promoter: Ana Monro Theatre

The festival takes place in Ljubljana but also presents individual works in other Slovene cities including Kranj, Nova Gorica, Celje, Vrhnika, Novo mesto, Kamnik, Grosuplje. Since 1996, part of the festival’s programme also appears at Lent Festival in Maribor. The programme seeks to present various genres, styles, forms and contents of street theatre art, and includes everything from small individual acts to large-scale performances, from programmes for children to provocative shows for adults, from pantomime to illusions, from street music to contemporary dance, from visual acts to narratives, from drama to humour, and from circus skills to pyrotechnics, which attract a wide range of audience groups.

Ana Desetnica has been involved in several international networking and co-production projects at the European level, through its participation in the projects Eunetstar (European Network Street Arts Project 2003-2006), Circostrada and Meridians, whose combined member organisations represent over 20 countries. Through Ana Desetnica Festival, numerous street theatre productions have had the opportunity to tour abroad. The Artistic Director of Ana Desetnica Festival, Goro Osojnik, is regularly invited to represent the festival throughout Europe by serving on artistic juries, lecturing at events, and sharing his knowledge and expertise of the field and the artistic genre of street theatre.

Our aim is to make festival alive and in contact with public. We like to think that we do as much as we can as to make all involved parties content – the public, the performers and organizers. Therefore we do put much effort into every performance shown and try as much as possible to have its own time, space and sound space so that it can be presented in its best edition. We also other organizers in Slovenia to join the Ana, informal network dedicated to join the festivity of theatre in the street.
