The 1st International Symposium on Landscape Architecture Landezine LIVE is being organized by web portal Landezine, founded in 2009, which has established itself as one of the world’s most recognized online media in the field of landscape architecture. The central theme of the symposium will be an interdisciplinary approach to the design of open space. It will feature lectures by – and panel discussion with – a number of well-established foreign (Antje Stokman, Jenny B. Osuldsen, Martí Franch Batllori) and domestic experts (Ana Kučan, Matej Blenkuš) in the fields of landscape architecture and architecture. This year, the first LILA – Landezine International Landscape Award will be awarded by Landezine.com editorial board, currently the only international award in the world that does not reward individual projects, but rather collectives and individuals in the field of landscape architecture for their approach to the design of open space.

Via Negativa: THE NINTH

Gallop through Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. From absolutism to socialism… From defeatism to optimism… From populism to vulgarism… Welcome in the stable of humanism.

The Ninth runs through the entire sound landscape of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. On the one side a “masterpiece of the western civilization:” “Giant and complex.” “Sublime.” “Striking example of human spirit.” “Triumphant vision of brotherhood.” Beethoven’s 9th. On the other side us: Naked and suspicious. Nothing great about us. Nothing triumphant. Not sublime but explicit. Not complex but reduced. Horses. Več …

EVOLUTIONARY SLIP

Popular sci-fi stage documentary based on a novel Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut.

Evolution is blind and stupid. Its direction is not predetermined, but rather randomly determined by the environment. In the course of evolution, an animal species may become ever more complex or more simple, but in any case it is becoming better adapted to its habitat. From the perspective of human life, evolution is happening slowly and does not directly affect the individual. Its effects are only visible over many generations. Več …

International festival ensemble: COMMUNITY

Photo: Gregor Gobec

Sunday, November 27 at 8pm

The performance is in English.

On the last festival evening we will engage in something very rare in Slovene and international improvisational production – a big stage ensemble. The group dynamics of 26 actors will drive the play around the theme of community. A spectacle, clumsy stage happening, inspiring live event, or complete chaos? In any case, this will be an intensive shared experience for both the audience and the performers (if such a distinction would still make sense at all).

Concept: Maja Dekleva Lapajne
Performance: Beatrix Brunschko, Dino Kapetanovič, Eva Jus, Gregor Moder, Jacob Banigan, Jan Hrušovar, Juš Milčinski, Katarina Veselko, Koray Bülent Tarhan, Mistral Majer, Nejc Šmit, Olivija Grafenauer, Peter Frankl, Rok Bohinc, Sara Šoukal, Sašo Stare, Teja Bitenc, Tomaž Lapajne Dekleva, Urša Strehar Benčina, Vid Sodnik, Zeynep Özyurt Tarhan
Music: Evren Gülseven, Goran Završnik, Hannu Risku
Lights: Borut Cajnko

Improške (Slovenia) Crossing Over: INSPIRATION AT FIRST SIGH(T)

Photo: Ana Šircelj

Friday, November 25 at 7pm

The performance is in English.

Improške is an open, non-hierarchically organised group of female performers who has come together because they like playing together. But also because they are interested in what role gender plays on stage and how we can play with gender stereotypes and surpass them. Improške are a safe community where its members can explore, develop, test their boundaries and look for different forms of expression through improvised performance.

Before there is a word, there is a look. A look is an invitation to create a relationship, first contact with another person, first exchange between the two. A child, who covers her eyes, believes she has dissapeared; what I can’t see, doesn’t exist. In the performance Inspiration at First Sigh(t) Improške and guests will play with all these functions of sight – sight as initiation of communication, sight as the mirror of inner experience, sight as condition of existence. Each scene will begin with a sigh(t) – between two improvisers or between an improviser and someone from the audience – and spontaneously ramifies into a story of a momentary meeting.

Concept: Katarina Veselko, Mistral Majer, Olivija Grafenauer, Sara Šoukal, Teja Bitenc, Urša Strehar Benčina
Performance: Beatrix Brunschko, Eva Jus, Katarina Veselko, Mistral Majer, Olivija Grafenauer, Sara Šoukal, Teja Bitenc, Urša Strehar Benčina, Zeynep Özyurt Tarhan
