Tuesday, 1st October, 19.00 / Mladinsko Theatre
Opening of the 25th International Festival of Contemporary Arts - City of Women

25 years, 160 participant, 18 venues. In October we are writing #HerStory at City og Women. The varied programme pays homage to the past of the festival and looks into the future.

Come to the opening ceremony of the festival with the legendary women’s theatre collective She She Pop from Berlin, who will present their performance Drawers.

Opening ceremony will be addresed from the Minister of Culture Zoran Poznič, Head of Department for Culture of City of Ljubljana mag. Mateja Demšič, Director of the Goethe-Institute Ljubljana Uwe Reissig and the Honorary President of City of Women Eva D. Bahovec.

In Drawers (2012), women from West Berlin rummage through the drawers of women who grew up on the Eastern side of the Berlin wall, hoping for their diaries and letters, their favourite songs and books to reveal the similarities and differences between them. “The Easterners”, of course, strike back in a performance that treats the German reunification process as a therapy for couples.

The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.
