Nevenka Koprivšek suddenly passed away in February 2021. You are welcome to read some thoughts written in the book of condolences IN MEMORIAM Nevenka.
The Old Power Station is a space for contemporary perfroming arts. It is buzzing with activities: several groups use it as their rehearsal venue; it is a place for different workshops, which range from cultural management to dance techniques, while in the evening, the power station is a venue for various contemporary performances and other multimedia events.
The programme in the Old Power Station is a combination of international performances, presented in the frame of various festivals, as well as a selection of interesting Slovene contemporary artists.
The red thread of all events in The Old Power Station is the desire to explore and move the boundaries of the aesthetic and the expected, as well as the desire for engagement in the local and global environment.
