Instead of classical holiday wishes Ljud & friends are organizing the 1st traditional NON-TRADITIONAL MIDNIGHT MASS in Križevniška church (Križanke, Ljubljana).
Come and join us!
If traditional Christmas rituals leave you indifferent, you are looking for a sanctuary from the pre-holiday shopping madness or would like to gather stories for the winter join us between the 21st and the 25th of December.
From Winter solstice till Christmas we will open the door of Križevniška church where our musicians and performers will take you to a magical mythical in-between-world. There awaits you a bed, some tea and a trip to the bottom of the whale’s belly, where you will get a chance to be reborn or at least rest a bit.
The doors of the church will be open:

We are not partying into the new year yet… first we have a new premiere coming up:
Captain Dada’s Pirate Theatre!
Premiere: 9th of December at 6 pm in Menza pri Koritu (Metelkova, Ljubljana)
18.12. at 18h Cafe Kolaž, 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!

As you may already know the pink aliens finally decided to make earth their permanent home. The visas and work permits are still a bit of a problem but the “silver cube” found a permanent residence in the south of France where three dedicated guardians will make sure that it stays accessible to future generations of scientists and the general public. If you would like to look behind the scenes you can watch our exclusive video report. We would also like to sincerely thank Energetika Ljubljana for their support of this excellent mission.
