In its eight years of existence, the Small Arts Platform has established itself as a festival that highlights the emerging and current but dispersed and less visible non-institutional production of hybrid stage practices and questions the size of the genres such as cabaret, queer burlesque, stand-up, clowning and improv theatre. Each year, groups of artists and producers from Slovenia and abroad are presented whos works are often referred to as "small" due to their titillating content, social commentary, provocation and appropriation of pop culture in the theatrical context. Although these stage works are imbued with humour, it is a laugh that often sticks in the throat as the audience is confronted with a harsh critique of the social situation during the hedonistic enjoyment of the stage performance.
