Saturday, 19 May, 10.00–20.00
Švicarija Creative Centre, Tivoli Park, free of charge

How did they dress in the past, how did they carry themselves, what did they say and what did they do? Ljubljana Promenade, Tivoli and Švicarija in the past and today! The Promenade Family Festival consists of two all-day workshops and a conclusion in the form of storytelling. It is intended for children, families and all generations!

Creative workshops at which we explore the social history of Švicarija, 10.00–17.00

A scenographic workshop at which we produce mini-scenes – the scenery of the former promenade life in Tivoli.
Concept: Samo Lapajne, academy-trained painter, set and costume designer.

Seeing and Placing Oneself on View
We make large-scale paintings, which we then place into the space.
Concept: Ana Sluga, Švicarija Creative Centre studio user, painter, photographer and video artist.

Closing event of the day at 18.00

The Voices of Tivoli, recounting true stories about Švicarija
Tivoli is full of stories, the wildest and juiciest are only known to the trees, never to be passed on to you. But some have remained written down, some have been told and some are being whispered about. We have dug up some special ones about the restored Švicarija. They will be given original interpretations by narrators and musicians who are known to many from the radio waves of Radio Študent and from the CDs Za 2 groša fantazije.

Stories recounted by: Ciril Horjak – dr. Horowitz, Boštjan Napotnik- Napo, Katja Preša, Srečko Meh and Ana Ličina. Music: Andrej Fon.

David Lynch: Fire on Stage

13. 4.–29. 7. 2018

The first presentation of the American film director, scriptwriter, photographer, painter, musician and printmaker David Lynch in Slovenia. The Fire on Stage show offers a selection of seventy fine art graphic prints produced in the lithography technique. The presentation is rounded off by paintings from private collections, watercolours, as well as a selection of experimental and animated films. What all the displayed works have in common is the intertwining of the surrealistic, expressive and grotesque, by which a Lynchian atmosphere is established. This is followed in the exhibition set-up with a stage-like feel conjured up by set designer Branko Hojnik.

Curator: Božidar Zrinski.

The experiential workshop involves becoming acquainted with the main ideas about creativity from Lynch's book Catching the Big Fish along with psychodrama techniques. It is intended to actively explore one's own creativity through enactment. Would you like to (as you put yourself into their role) meet with your own ocean as well as the big and small creative fish in it, or perhaps even with Lynch himself?

The workshop is conducted by Tomi Janežič, theatre director and associate professor at the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television (AGRFT).

The workshop will be held in two parts with one break. Participants must be present from beginning to end. The number of applicants is limited. Advance bookings taken up till the available quota at lili.sturm@mglc-lj.si.
