We are happy to present Why Don’t We Do It in the Road: A Personal Guide to Outdoor Interactive Theatre, written by Vida Cerkvenik Bren, co-created and published by Ljud.


Why Don’t We Do It in the Road is a book for anyone:
… who enjoys creating outdoor theatre performances,
… who is interested in learning about it,
… who is interested in the mechanisms behind it,
… and for anyone who is … well … just generally interested in things.

Why Don’t We Do It in the Road invites you to enter the world of outdoor theatre through the personal experiences, stories and views of performers, directors and pedagogues. The book shares their theoretical thoughts as well as practical advices. It provides tools for analysing existing theatre phenomena and suggests helpful tips and exercises that will help you make a new creation of your own.

The book is available free in a printed and a digital version. To read more about it and to download your copy click HERE

The book was published as part of RIOTE2 project co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

KUD Ljud in cooperation with Slovenian Theatre Institute invites you to the conference on the theatre in public spaces, its position among the performing arts in Slovenia as well as in the field of education. These will be the central topics of the two round tables. An all day event will also include a presentation of a recently published book on the outdoor interactive theatre, film projections and more. Among the participants of the conference will be established artists, festival organizers, professors, pedagogues, representatives of public institutions as well as non-governmental organizations.

In the last two decades theatre in public spaces has spread across Slovenia. New festivals are being born, old ones are expanding, there are more and more venues as well as Slovene artists who perform on them. Theatre in public spaces has also found its place in strategies, plans and calls for submission of public cultural institutions and hence became in many ways officially equal to other performing arts.

But do the artists who work in public spaces also have in reality the same opportunities as the other performing artists? What is the position that the theatre in public spaces in Slovenia is truly in? And what is the state of education on outdoor theatre? What kind of a future awaits them?

Join us on the 3rd of June from 9 a.m. at the Slovenian Theatre Institute and help us find answers to these questions.

Conference is a part of RIOTE2 project co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

Borderland gallery


Galerija na meji / Grenzlandgalerie / Borderland gallery
… is an attempt to walk along an invisible line,
… is an experiment in the framing of the undepictable,
… is a journey through a century of border stories.

After a ghost bus tour across the Steep saddle LJUD goes once again on a search of border ghosts, this time to Styria.


In the hilly landscape on the Slovenian-Austrian border stands a series of picture frames. Each frame along this invisible line shows a different view of the landscape and tells another story of its unusual past. In a audio walk through the gallery, the testimonies of people who have crossed the border and of those who have spent all their lives with it, are intertwined with music in an essayistic journey that is available in the form of an audio guide in Slovene and German.

Klengel_Grenzlandgalerie_3 (1)

Join us on Saturday, May 12th, on a one-time tour to the gallery. Our special gallery bus will take us to the border and beyond. We will depart from Ljubljana (13:00, parking space in front of Hala Tivoli) and Maribor (14:30 pm, General Maister Square) and return in the evening. Due to a limited number of seats & special language skill requirement (audio is available only in Slovene or German), please take a crash course in one (or both) language(s) and reserve your seat at

Borderland gallery is a project created by: KUD LJUD & Robin Klengel in cooperation with: Mladen Baćić, Adina F. Camhy, Petra Gosenca, Kristijan Guček, Lorenz Kabas, Moke Klengel, Andreas Kloos, Ana Ruter, Johannes Schweighofer, Jurij Torkar.

Special thanks go to all the local people.

Ljud’s new avant premiere!


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.

Look around!


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.”

Harriet EVS 3

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