The Card of Cankarjev dom
The project is based on Nanine pesmi, a music picture book comprising Frane Milčinski – Ježek’s lesser-known poetry performed by Nana Milčinski. The subject of the seventeen poems is the poet’s granddaughter, Nana, on whose initiative the poems were set to music and included in the collection Preprosta ljubezen (Simple Love).
Aimed at our youngest audiences, the tenderly autobiographical Nana’s Songs (Nanine pesmi) blends music, dance, theatre and video to tell an enchanting story about a little girl discovering the worlds of drawing, play and fantasy in the company of her doting grandfather. The meeting of the grandfather (Frane Milčinski - Ježek), granddaughter (Nana Milčinski) and their art comes to life as an encounter between two generations in a special place – the peace that humans get to experience only at the end or the beginning of their lives.
