Monday 28th – Wednesday 30th November 2022

Festival Drugajanje was established in 2002 in collaboration between the II. gimnazija Maribor secondary school and Bunker. The name of the festival is derived from the name of the school, but at the same time it refers to otherness; to another theatre, to another dance, to other formats, to another audience… But it also implies action, festivity, and, although we didn’t know it – or even suspect it – at the time, also duration!
Drugajanje has undergone some changes, but has always remained faithfully connected to young audiences, to international and local contemporary performing arts, and to Maribor. After twenty editions, the 21st Drugajanje is expanding from Maribor to Nova Gorica and Ptuj. The hubs in the two “new” cities are also secondary schools, and in the coming years, our goal is to expand the successful format throughout Slovenia.
The 21st festival Drugajanje brings contemporary performances to Maribor, Nova Gorica and Ptuj – fresh formats, current content, and this year, also a series of workshops, which appeal mainly to students of secondary art schools and seek to offer them short joint artistic processes.
Welcome to Drugajanje – it was conceived in different times, but it is different and intended for different people every year – each time for new generations and at the same time, for all generations!

More about drugajanje

Since 2001 Bunker is organizing Drugajanje festival in Maribor. It started on the initiative of the headmaster of a high school II. gimnazija Maribor Ivan Lorenčič and it grew into a permanent and fruitful partnership between Bunker and the school and also built a very successful bridge between Ljubljana, the capitol of Slovenia and Maribor, the second largest city in Slovenia.

Drugajanje is a concentrated short contemporary arts festival organized in collaboration with secondary school in Maribor at their theatre and at other venues in Maribor. The focus is on performing arts, especially contemporary theatre and dance. The festival was founded with the purpose of bringing the young generation and the whole city some fresh and vibrant performance art. At the same time it enables Slovene performances to spread out from Ljubljana, where most of the national contemporary scene is being produced.

Contrary to the belief that special performances for the youth should be produced for the youth, Drugajanje has always had a strong artistic contemporary profile and the program through the years always consisted of state-of-the-art contemporary theater and dance.

In the last years the festival has developed from a Slovene focused to internationally focused festival in terms of geographical distribution and has also had a shift in the format: from merely presenting finished works of art to youth and other inhabitants of Maribor we have started developing more process oriented festivals that strongly takes into consideration the festival’s home: Maribor.
