Small Arts Platform 2023
2-5 November 2023, Mladinsko Theatre, Ljubljana, SI
For the sixth year running, the Small Arts Platform welcomes all those forms of performance that are often considered "small" in the context of theatre because of their racy content, social commentary, provocation and pop-cultural appropriation.
As we discuss how big the small arts are, national and international names are dressing up in snazzy costumes to spice up this year’s programme with performances, workshops, discussions and, of course, an unlimited amount of conspiratorial mischief. For an added oddment of luxury, for 4/7 of the week we will transform the underground of the Mladinsko Theatre into a paradise of glamour, a place of acceptance. There we will bring to the stage the cabaret delicacy Le Cabaret de Poussière from Paris, the drop dead funny Our Beloved Alter Idiots, androgynous dance of Castor and Pollux by a Spanish choreographer Marta Izquierdo Muñoz, Styrian cabaret ZIZ, local drag queens with the performance Eat your make-up, and in collaboration with Eat Slay Love and vogueing emanation PLENVM from Vienna we will organize an international Kiki Function. The Small Arts Platform will also be pushing everything out of the box with our old friends The Feminalz, this time particulary spicy due to a guest burlesque act by Peekaboo Pointe from New York*.
Enough with the small talk and inverted commas, we welcome you to an event with extra pzazz.
Ticket purchase and workshop applications: TBA
The programme will be held in Slovene and English.
