The performances

of day 2 of the festival started off with a duet from three countries.
followed by a home grown solo by two choreographers
and a trio that made us spin
but of course, in the end, we all end up wrapped in a plastic bag, under the bridge downtown, alone.

I had a

 cameo appearance in her performance 

but in the end I was swept off stage (as one often is when the night is over)

p.s. of course I didn't take photos of myself on stage

With my camera

in my hand I feel at home even when I find myself at an opening in a different town,
I feel at home listening to short stories in another language,
and I most certainly feel at home when it all turns into a concert on the beach.

(So, good people of Krk, what have you prepared for me today?)

The performance

 about the small village I currently live in
and a performance about pineapples with a ballet insert.
(how diverse the student performances can be).

The hectic (but fun) festival days begin

 with the violent early afternoon rehearsal by the Students in Glej
and as I got kicked out of the same rehearsal twice for being too early I popped down to the local library for a quick concert (nothing to do with festivals) before returning to the rehearsal (third time lucky (yey!))
where I just let myself get lost in the darkness of the theatre.

in place of a p.s. here is a photo from the rehearsals which had nothing to do with the performance.

There might have been an exhibition opening yesterday

and I might have one or two photos in it (but not the ones you can see here)
and it might have been followed by a concert.
(But then I guess you had to be there to know whether all this happened or not)

At the opening

we were all wondering who were the poor souls (or sausages would seem appropriate in this case) who got wrapped up and left in the gallery for the next 3 weeks.
At the first concert of the night (this is only 1 of the 3 musicians playing at this concert and only the first of the three bands I was to see that evening) we just relaxed in a secret garden in the middle of Metelkova and forgot all about the poor sausages from the exhibition.

Something was missing

in my life, so I decided to walk into the light and see what happens.
As I did, I realised I was doing it all wrong. I mean, how can the rest of us possibly surpass someone like Andre and his romantic gestures*? No wonder I have been without a girlfriend for so long.
(keep your fingers crossed that I have learnt something from this and that I successfully return from the bright light).

*Oh yeah, the sign reads: I've saved the sunset for you

Two wacky concerts

in the same town, on the same day and at the same time... I had to decide somehow... And as I have already seen The Tiger Lillies and as I knew there would be enough people there anyway, I decided to go and see Alicia Edelweiss instead (who also played the accordion).

Erik Truffaz

 at the moment I caught him catching a moment
and Sophie Hunger at the same concert.

And...

I am back in Ljubljana, almost straight from the car to a dance performance
 and a concert.

An opening

at which you can see the work in progress.
 Followed by a  concert of two bands I have never seen before.
What more could a man ask for (well I can think of something, but that is another story (one of woe), and I wouldn't want to bore you all with the details of it in this blog).

Sick man press conference

for which the semi-sick man came to take a few photos and went straight back home to bed.
