Ana Desetnica is a unique international street theatre festival which happens once a year in many different Slovenian cities, but the most spectacular, interesting and breathtaking shows occur in the capital. The festival, in cooperation with theatre Ana Monro, gathers together well-known and unknown street performers, puppeteers, clowns, presenters, musicians and a bunch of other creative minds who present their shows, cooperate, amuse and engage the audience.
This year festival’s preparing a special treat. They have invited a circus cabaret group CirkoBalkana with young artists from different countries of former Yugoslavia who’ve erected a big red circus tent in Argentinski park. The group will be hosting different circus and street theater shows until Saturday evening. Besides that, you can also rest yourself in comfy armchairs in the open-air living room on the main central Slovenska cesta. Every evening, the festival space will be transformed and re-created using different pieces of furniture and carpets.
Dancing, singing, theatre workshops (for children), flea markets, world cuisine, storytelling and much more trigger so many different feelings and emotions, they aren’t always easily put into words and spectators often wander into other states of mind. Totally drawn into the happening, they forget about the world outside and just FEEL with all their senses at once. We very often forget to do that in our everyday lives, so let Ana Desetnica hit (on) you.
