Prefestival event of 24th International Festival of Contemporary Arts – City of Women

21st Sep. / 8pm

The Old Power Station Ljubljana 

To Last, a durational performance by the playwright and performer Simona Semenič, is her public reading of her complete works, ensuring the writing to be heard in her precarious voice.

The performance title, To Last, symbolizes a certain cleansing ritual: to the last viewer, to the last text, to the last meaning, to the last wish, to the last atom of strength … And finally, it is a process through which the accumulated time of rigid cultural and societal codes will regain a piece of the future.
