18:00 – 19:00Theatre performance “SENIORS”

Directors Tin Grabnar and Hana Vodeb are presenting their second premiere, called Seniors, as a part of long term Glej Residency Project. They have put ageing in the centre of their artistic expression. For more than two years they have been exploring different spheres of ageing with seniors, who until that point mostly had no connection to theatre. They were building a community that is bravely facing stereotypes and isolation towards Seniors through research of memory and poetic interpretation of ageing.

Produced by: Glej Theatre (more about the performance)
Co-produced by: Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television, University of Ljubljana
