Wednesday, 10 November 2021 at 15.00 at Slovenian Theatre Institute, Ljubljana
The epidemiological situation prevented the 2021 edition of the Week of Slovenian Drama from going ahead during its regular spring dates. Nevertheless, on 27 March, World Theatre Day, when the WSD usually opens, we announced the Slavko Grum Award nominees. On 6 April, traditionally the day of the festival’s closing ceremony, we announced the winners of the 2021 Grum Award and the Young Playwright Award. Even before that, the Slovenian Theatre Institute, the Prešeren Theatre Kranj and Layer
House recorded and broadcast interviews with the authors of the nominated and award-winning texts.
The Day of the Nominees in this year’s festival edition will be slightly different. The UL AGRFT students and the mentors will prepare the annual reading performances of the nominated (and award-winning) texts. However, instead of discussing the individual texts, a round table with the nominees and the winners will follow. The round table will touch upon the texts read by the students as well as the relationship between the drama writing and staging practices in the current production. What
is the role of the Slavko Grum Award in all this? How do we understand the cases when drama writing itself is a constitutive element of the performing processes and what is the place of the texts that were thus created in drama writing at large? Does the link between the drama material and the performing material presume a shift in the view of the role of the author?
