Katalena: Enci benci Katalenci

New Year's Eve family concert

Performed by: Vesna Zornik, Polona Janežič, Boštjan Gombač, Tibor Mihelič Syed, Boštjan Narat, Robert Rebolj
Directed by: Ivana Djilas
Production: Cankarjev dom, Kulturno umetniško društvo Adapter
 

For their Enci benci Katalenci project, the Katalena band finds inspiration in counting-out rhymes, distinctly rhythmical, gibberish formulas full of mysterious words used by children, usually as a preliminary to games, to assign roles. The counting-out rhymes are handed down from one generation to the next, transmitted orally. A selection of Slovenian counting-out rhymes was published in the collection Enci benci na kamenci (Mladinska knjiga Publishing House). A counting-out rhyme is a game in itself – a game of coincidence. And this seemingly nonsensical counting-out was what inspired Katalena’s wide variety of stories, poems, motifs or ingenious ideas.
 

The Enci Benci Katalenci musical bravura is actually a staged concert aimed at children of all ages, the young audiences aged between two and ten, as well as young-at-heart music lovers. Expect everything from moments of musical magic to real rock 'n' roll. It may well be our finest project yet.

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky: The Idiot

Allocated seating does not apply.
The new measures adopted to contain the spread of COVID-19 dictate that one seat is left empty between each attendee. Allocated seating will therefore not apply.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.


Curiosity, love, rivalry, sacrifice, suffering, indecision, countless small and big misfortunes, are just some of the qualities of this exciting novel adapted for the stage by the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb and directed by Vasily Senin.

On the one hand, The Idiot is an extensive narrative centring on Prince Myshkin, a returnee from Switzerland and a guileless benefactor, and interspersed with episodes that could well-nigh classify as melodramas. And, on the other hand, The Idiot paints portraits and depicts personalities, dealing with major ethical issues.

In a bid to sustain a balance between the plot’s manifold layers and the open interpretive structure, the director and author of stage adaptation, Vasily Senin, opted for formal simplicity. Comprising a succession of clear-cut scenes based on individual episodes in the novel, The Idiot is riddled with digressions, repetitions and lengthy dialogues, all of which culminates in fine-tuned and precise dynamics – the driving force behind Senin's theatrical tour de force.

Aleksandra Bajde: Self-Portraits in Imaginary Places

In cooperation with the City of Women Festival

 

 

“In this work I would like to depict places, meaning that a `place´ does not need to be a material, geographical place – it can also be a metaphysical place, with which meanings, feelings, dreams, and certain symbolic values are associated.”
Aleksandra Bajde

The central idea of this new work is to create an abstract, scenic musical piece based on sound, gestures of musicians, contemporary dance and light. The piece explores the connections between sound, gestures and light, and their opposites, such as sound/silence, tension/relaxation, movement/immobility, light/darkness, melody/noise.
The imaginary places – a series of different and contrasting scenes – are therefore created through a complex interplay of different manifestations of these media and their opposites. It is also about sharing one medium with another, for example, to make sound visible through light and to make light audible through sound. In this way, despite the lack of a story, a highly dramatic effect will be produced. As such, the work offers its audience an enriching and multidimensional experience.

Aleksandra Bajde is a Slovenian composer and singer living in Vienna. In her native country she studied the violin, the piano, and classical singing at the Maribor Music and Ballet Conservatory. In 2011, she graduated in Jazz Singing from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. During her music studies, she was selected for an Erasmus Program at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln. In 2013, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in a Bachelor’s (Honours) degree program in liberal arts and sciences (with a focus on International Relations and Sociology) from Amsterdam University College. In 2014, she completed a trilingual Master’s program in Advanced European and International Studies at the European Institute in France. In June 2018, she completed her Master’s degree in Composition with distinction at the Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität in Linz.

In 2019, she was granted a Working Scholarship for Composition as well as a “Startstipendium” for Music and Performing Arts by the Federal Chancellery of Austria. In 2020, she was awarded the Theodor Körner Förderpreis for composition and was selected for the European Music Council Fellowship Programme 2020 – 2021. In 2021, she received a Scholarship for Composition by the Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport of Austria.
She works as the Office and Project Manager at the Austrian Section of the International Society for Contemporary Music.

Tomaž Svete: The House of Mercy

Chamber opera, first performance
Conductor: Simon Dvoršak

In his eleventh opera, composer Tomaž Svete draws thematic inspiration from Slovenian author Ivan Cankar’s Hiša Marije Pomočnice (The House of Mary Our Helper), a novel written in 1904 and celebrated for its tragic sense of longing and the overarching blend of Christian and ethical thought alongside naturalistic criticism of society.

In incorporating both traditional elements and more modernist approaches, the work stylistically heralds a continuation of Svete’s operatic output, while faithfully following the text and, as a musical enhancement of the dramatic progress, offering its interpretation.

The ensemble includes seven vocalists and six instrumentalists (violin, flute, saxophone, trombone, accordion and percussion).

Sanremo

Director: Miroslav Mandić
With english subtitles

A few years ago, when my uncle was still alive, I often went to visit him at a retirement home where he lived. I was moved by the vulnerability of those people, their sporadic smiles, and the childishness with which they perceived things around them. I am interested in the atmosphere of a retirement home, which oscillates between poetry and higher knowledge.
Miroslav Mandić

Bruno and Duša, who live in the same nursing home, enjoy each other’s company. However, their moments together are always soon forgotten, as both of them suffer from dementia. Each time they meet feels like the first. This unique relationship is evoked by Gigliola Cinquetti’s song Non ho l’eta, performed at the Sanremo Festival back in the 1960s – the only shared memory from their youth. When Bruno is alone, his past resurfaces, causing him to retreat to his old life – his home, his wife, and his dog, which are, in reality, no longer around. One night, he has trouble finding his room. He accidentally walks into Duša’s and falls asleep next to her. In the morning, they start arguing, each of them convinced the other one is in the wrong bed, only to rediscover their mutual affection. Moments later, dressed in her finest clothes, Duša waits for Bruno at their breakfast table in vain.
