How does the current edition of selected books featured at the Fabula Festival sound when performed by prominent ensemble members of the Slovenian National Theatre Drama Ljubljana? Literature and theatre were originally closely connected, but in recent decades it is believed that the distance between them has been growing. Traditional plays are believed to be lacking sensitivity to the current social developments, while on the other hand performative stage aesthetics are increasingly pushing literary language off the stage. In collaboration with the Fabula Festival, the SNT Drama Ljubljana will interweave the worlds of literature and theatre in a series of online events in February and March, culminating in a live presentation of literary works on 11 April at 20.00 in the Small Stage venue.
Excerpts from books by this year’s Fabula Festival guest authors will be read by Maja Končar, Saša Mihelčič, Barbara Cerar, Sabina Kogovšek, Benjamin Krnetić, Saša Tabaković, Klemen Janežič and Nejc Cijan Garlatti.
