URŠA VIDIC: THE WALL
The eastern wall of the Old Power Station in Ljubljana is not the »original«, bricked one, but a zigzag wall forming boundary between the street and the still operating transformer station of the power plant. The Old Power Station celebrated its 120th anniversary last year, and this year, we are celebrating 15 years since the renovation and reopening of the facility – in its new edition as a stage. In August 2004, we began with our regular performance programme in the building with the opening of the Mladi Levi festival and the event If we didn’t exist, you would have to make us up.
The Old Power Station wall, currently covered by Aplavz (Applause) by Toni Soprano Meneglejte, will be decorated by Urša Vidic this year, on the 15th anniversary of the Old Power Station venue. In selecting authors, our principle for the second time in a row is to invite visual artists, but the ones connected to theatre. Urša Vidic is a scenographer who works in various different fields, and she also worked at the Old Power Station. Her work is characterized by simplicity and complexity at the same time. Her wall will be homage to artists who have been working at the Old Power Station for the last 15 years, and at the same time, it will be her message to all of us who are gravitating around it: a slogan written down in the alphabet of sounds. Let’s hope it conveys the message of what the Old Power Station is and what it wants for all.
