Ljud’s new avant premiere!

10.4.2018


Today a rock, tomorrow a wind!
City metamorphosis

Imagine the splash of the river or the gust of the wind rolling down the street…it changes what it is in what it is not, but it will be, it is becoming and it already is. It reveals things that are so ordinary that nobody sees them anymore. It takes us beyond expectations – into a state of consciousness, where the world is new, fresh and undiscovered.

The Ljuds are preparing a very special magical attack on the streets of Ljubljana.
Directed by the Romanian performative artistCsongorKöllő and performed by the participants of the international project RIOTE 2, local performers and of course the Ljuds.

You will meet us this Friday, April 13th at 15:00 and 17:00 on the streets of Ljubljana:)

Co-financed by MOL and Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

Look around!

19.2.2018

Our EVS project Look around! is finishing. Volunteer Harriet form England described her experience with these words:

“My half-year adventure in art in public spaces is coming to an end. It began with opening a Streetwalker gallery in Ljubljana, and ends with paintings in a gallery in Ljubljana. In between I have aided pink alien Invasions, brought origami snails to life in stop-motion and workshops, animated paper-snowflakes for Christmas and New Year, gone sightseeing with DaDa-ist pirates and joined their crew in search of treasure, as well as the process of illustrating a new performance, and climbing trees to reveal hidden artworks. I have even dabbled in talking Slovene and learned to make Šmorn.”

We thank all who made the project possible, especially our volunteer Harriet Ainscough, our partner organization ICYE from England and Institute Movit!

Steilpass/Steep saddle

18.4.2016

Unikum – cultural centre of Klagenfurt university, invited LJUD to create a site-specific project with a Alpe-Adria bus line connecting Carinthian and Slovenian capital through historically burdened Loibelpass. Bus line with its abandoned places will become “stage” for travelling theater and will be filled with new contents – documentary approach of the artists will discuss complicated relationship of both cities, both countries and living situation of the neighborhood.

steilpass

Ljud group will take care for your well-being on this 12 hour long “ghost bus” trip, you will be invited to co-create this extraordinary trip. Expect unexpected incidents and special in between stops. Together we will reveal history, explore the past of the places and of local people and in the enddiscover also ourselves…

Because of limited capacities of the bus (40 passengers for one ride), the tour will be staged
three times – 3rd, 4th in 5th june. To book your ticket go here

Our special guest are Boris Magdalenc and audio project “Afterlife Woodland” by French & Mottershead (UK)*

* Afterlife Woodland is an audio artwork that transports the listener to the most intimate of places, which paradoxically none of us will ever actually experience: our body’s decomposition after death.

Special thanks go to all the local people, especially to Herta Malle, Danica Katona, Jože Romšak and Johann Schütz!

Captain Dada’s Pirate Theatre!

3.12.2015

We are not partying into the new year yet… first we have a new premiere coming up:

Captain Dada’s Pirate Theatre!

AarrraaGGGhhH!

Premiere: 9th of December at 6 pm in Menza pri Koritu (Metelkova, Ljubljana)
Other dates:
18.12. at 18h Cafe Kolaž, Ljubljana
22.12. at 17h Radio Študent, Ljubljana
23.12. at 17h Rdeča Ostriga, Škofja Loka
29.12. at 17h atrium of Gosposka 11, Maribor

Captain Dada is without a ship and crew, he forgot the purpose of his expedition, he has lost the map to the treasure and his compass is broken, he has a severe hangover and is also seasick … his fake parrot has escaped and we will not even mention the monkey… he has a wooden leg and he keeps waking up on the wrong side of bed… What does the audience suggest?

Captain Dada’s Pirate Theatre! is an interactive theater adventure for a family audience, inspired by the legends of sea robbers and the avant-garde art movements of the early 20th century. Two perfromers will be using physical theatre, absurd humor and surreal twists to pull the audience into a unpredictably tempestuous treasure hunt.

To the horizon, over the edge and down to the bottom!

P.S. If you can’t make it till the end of the year don’t panic – more shows will follow in 2016!
P.P.S. The show is supported by Mestna občina Ljubljana.
P.P.S. ArrrrgGGggHHhHhhh!
