Deborah Levy: The Man Who Saw Everything

One of the big stories in English fiction this decade – in English writing, really – has been the return and triumph of Deborah Levy. You would call her example inspiring if it weren’t clearly impossible to emulate.
New Statesman

The Man Who Saw Everything begins in September 1988, when Saul Adler, a beautiful young historian of communism, is struck by a car on the famous zebra crossing on Abbey Road, in London. Though injured, he visits his girlfriend, artist Jennifer Moreau; they split up after engaging in sex. Saul then carries out a research trip to East Germany, where he intends to bury some of the ashes of his father, a committed socialist. But during Saul’s trip to Berlin, things begin to feel slightly awry. At one point he is seized by a prophecy of Soviet economic collapse and German reunification. As in a frenzy, Marxism, eroticism, guilt and pop culture all blend to make a chaotic whole, focusing on what people are willing to overlook to convey an impression – in the eyes of History and our own eyes – of being who we want to believe we are.
Translated into Slovenian by Jernej Županič.

Deborah Levy (1959) is one of UK’s most prominent contemporary writers and playwrights, and one of the great thinkers of our time. Her masterful autobiography in the making, Things I Don't Want to Know, The Cost of Living, is regarded as a ground-breaking work of autofiction and a major essayistic accomplishment. Her novels have received several nominations for the Man Booker Prize, including The Man Who Saw Everything (2019).

Vladimir Sorokin: Day of the Oprichnik

Sorokin’s creations are at once fantastically strange and all too familiar . . . [Day of the Oprichnik] holds its own with dystopian classics like Fahrenheit 451 and honours the traditions of Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, and other great Russian writers even as its characters burn their books.
Library Journal
 

Moscow in the near future, a time of political overhaul and restored monarchy. In this New Russia, futuristic technology and the draconian codes of Ivan the Terrible are in perfect synergy. Its pillars are self-determination, orthodoxy and tradition. Welcome to Russia in 2028 – abandon all hope, ye who enter here. Passports are burnt in the Red Square, and diplomats are expelled from the country. The only country with which Russia remains contact is China. A dystopian portrait of a near future both too disturbing to contemplate and too realistic to dismiss. A contemporary classic, Day of the Oprichnik has been translated into over thirty languages.

Translated into Slovenian by Andreja Kalc.


Vladimir Sorokin (1955) is one of Russia’s finest and most celebrated contemporary writers. His works fuse postmodernist fiction with elements of dystopia, satire and Soviet motifs. A recipient of the most prestigious Russian literary prizes, he was shortlisted for the Man Booker International Prize.

Fabula after Fabula: Disintegrated Countries, Dissolving Communities? / Envisaging a Community of the Future?

The theoretical part of Fabula after Fabula, Fabula in Theory, to be held between 25 and 26 May 2021 at Cankarjev dom, will address the Festival’s overarching theme Future=Privilege? with two events – Disintegrated Countries, Dissolving Communities? and Envisaging a Community of the Future? The starting point for Disintegrated Countries, Dissolving Communities? relates to the 30th anniversary of the disintegration of two federations that shaped the twentieth-century’s political, social and cultural histories: Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union. On the other hand, Envisaging a Community of the Future? is dedicated to future challenges for communities or the building of new social structures. Together with Slovenian and international guests, we will explore current and future spaces, which today seem to be sliding back into elapsed ideas, into an area of political and social control, while increasingly taking on aspects of a dystopian future.

Elvis Stork, a Genius Klutz is a humorous, amusing and dynamic odyssey about the life of an average teenager whose relatively uncomplicated and routinely dull life is turned upside down by the news of his parents’ divorce. As if this wasn't enough, he has to share a home with women he finds all but unbearable, and his mom makes an announcement that she's pregnant. After an unexpected family tsunami, Elvis is forced to play the part of a family therapist and, while solving everyone else’s problems, is swamped with troubles of his own.

Nana’s Songs

Theatre and dance performance
For children aged over 5

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.

Adriana Calcanhotto, vocals; Bem Gil, guitar; Bruno Di Lullo, bass; Rafael Rocha, drums

A million titles would not be able to define Adriana Calcanhotto: a multi-platinum album seller and Latin Grammy award winner who moves effortlessly between widely popular ballads to conceptual art inspired by the great figures in literature and poetry, largely influenced by Brazilian modernism. As the iconic name of her generation, the recording artist was able to connect the Tropicalia movement, whose prominent representatives include Caetano, Gil, Tom Ze and Mutantes, to popular love songs and ballads that topped the charts and served as soundtracks for major TV soap operas. The show marks Adriana’s second appearance in Ljubljana and Cankarjev dom.
