The Day of the Nominees
Stage reading performances
The Day of the Nominees at the Week of Slovenian Drama endeavours to create a comprehensive presentation of the nominees for the Slavko Grum Award.
The reading performances are prepared by promising young directors together with the Prešeren Theatre Kranj ensemble and students of acting of the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television, with the authors, the Grum Award jury members, literary theorists, members of the Association of Theatre Critics and Theatre Researchers of Slovenia, artistic managers, dramaturgs, directors participating in the discussions. The audience, invited to share their vision of the texts with the authors and the guests, plays an important role. During this year’s discussions, the moderator, theatre researcher Ana Perne (Slovenian Theatre Institute), will be joined by the authors and theatre directors of different generations.
We must not forget that the basic concept of the festival day, fully dedicated to the best new texts of the Slovenian drama, aims to promote their authors and to open the space for a dialogical questioning of the situation in the field of the original drama, its staging, interpretation and development.
Through the years, the Day of the Nominees has become a recognisable platform that helps to spread the notion of the importance (and actuality) of new drama, also by encouraging the exchange of opinions, because with openness and connections we not only enrich each other, but also Slovenian playwriting.
