In the six years since inception, at the end of the season 2013/14 to its last edition in 2018/19, Drama Festival has become one of the key events on the Slovenian theatre scene. It has gradually gained an increasingly international character, which was further enhanced by the Jernej Šugman Award for the best performance of the festival by the audience vote. The seventh Drama Festival should have taken place at the end of the 2019/20 season but was cancelled due to the pandemic. Similarly, we were unable to organize it at the end of the 2020/21 season either. However, to celebrate the partial opening of the theatres, the Drama Festival was reinstated symbolically on 29 May 2021 with the original production of The Night Writer by Belgian multidisciplinary artist Jan Fabre, performed by the excellent Marko Mandić. So once again, we boldly announce the seventh Drama Festival to take place at the end of the forthcoming season and enrich the international programme selection of the last two seasons with new and topical productions.
