52nd Week of Slovenian Drama

The Day of the Nominees

About the event

Prešeren Theatre Kranj, Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television (University of Ljubljana) and the Slovenian Theatre Institute.

The Day of the Nominees is a traditional festival event that presents the plays nominated for the Slavko Grum Award. The UL AGRFT students prepare reading performances and dramaturgical analyses of the texts, while professional dramaturgs discuss their own reading of the texts with the nominated authors. Audience members are also invited to share their vision of the texts with the authors and the guests.

This year’s nominees are Jera Ivanc, Katarina Morano, Urša Majcen and Aljoša Lovrić Kovač. Theatre researcher Ana Perne (Slovenian Theatre Institute) will moderate the debate about the nominated texts. 

The Day (or Afternoon) of the Nominees, an event fully dedicated to the best new texts of the Slovenian drama, aims to promote the authors of the nominated texts and open a space for dialogically questioning the situation of original drama, its staging, interpretation and development. Over the years, this annual event has become a recognisable platform that helps spread new drama’s importance (and relevance).
