The Week of Slovenian Drama

March - April 2021 | Prešeren Theatre Kranj

POSTPONED | The Week of Slovenian Drama

Due to measures regarding the COVID-19 (i.e. Coronavirus), the event has been postponed (new date TBD). Thanks for understanding.


Main Theatre Festival of Slovenian Dramatics 

Like every year, Kranj will host the Week of Slovenian Drama (27 March - 5 April 2020). We will be able to see the best drama theatre productions of the past year and there will be many round table discussions, drama writing workshops etc.


It is the main goal of this festival to encourage theatres to perform dramatic texts by Slovenian authors, to encourage authors themselves and also people who promote Slovenian theatre abroad or wish to stage a performance of such original dramatic texts in their own country.


Rich Programme and Prestigious Awards

The local Prešeren Theatre is the main organizer of this festival, supported by the Municipality of Kranj, the Ministry of Culture, as well as by theatres and theatre institutes from Slovenia and abroad. Drama writing workshops, lead by accomplished dramatists and playwrights from all over the world, are an inspiration for new texts. An important contribution are also play readings and presentations of nominated theatre shows, as well as the cooperation with the Theatre and Film Academy and the Faculty of Arts.


This celebration of creativity in theatre is concluded by the Rudi Šeligo Award for the best drama theatre production and the Slavko Grum Award for the best Slovenian drama text.
