Cannibals

These are the cannibals that seem to be such a threat to the new PM-to-be.

While we are here, can we just contemplate the following for a second: The new PM-to-be publicly defines citizens who disagree with him as Cannibals. I don't know about you, but I think this world has gone way too far in the wrong direction, if people in leading positions in the country think it is OK to say such things and for people like me to be insulted like this.

Repast

 a dance performance choreographed by Milan Tomašik.


P.s. There were parts of the performance where I was actually thinking this is how I feel when I think about the world today:

It was snowing today

so we went driving in the snow to Kranj to see a couple of exhibitions. First we walked through Doroteja Dolinšek's exhibition in Stolp Škrlovec

and then we went to see Radharani Pernačič's exhibition in Layerjeva hiša, which was the one we originally planed to visit .

Punk Choir

or, to call them by their name, ZTZ Ruđer Boškovič - a very entertaining performance.
And before we left a Russian activist came to remind us that:

International Mother Language Day (also known as my father's birthday - Happy Birthday!)

so I went to listen to some people read their writings (mainly poetry) in their mother languages. As there were too many to chose a photo for the blog I went for a photo of the singer of the band that played in between.

50 years

of my favourite theatre and they still manage to remain on the margins of society (and theatre).

followed by Albanian songs performed by a choir.

Tori Story

met new people at this edition of the Couch Festival. It is a lovely idea for people to open up their homes to musicians and total strangers who want to come and listen to them. 

Wednesday, 12 February 2020

This year's Couch Festival started (for me) with

 Juan Zuleta & Danaja Koren on the sofas in Kucha

 followed by an early evening session by Hannah James and Toby Kuhn in Apotheka

 and the evening was brought to an end by Blueharp Robert

and Josip Broz Trio in Žmauc.

Slovene day of culture

First I met a good friend of mine and we went to visit a few artist studios in Švicerija (surprisingly I didn't take any photos there), then I went back home to do some work (the work of a freelance cultural worker is never done) and in the evening I went to see a few short dance films as chosen by my Friend 'Mračni' which was followed by a short discussion. After this I went to the annual bake off and sing along of the female choir Kombinat, but as I was late, I missed the choir and the food, but I caught the surprise band of the evening (a trio which included an accordionist).

Ment day 2

my evening started off with Melidah, who was playing a box which read her movements and this influenced the music and the video projection - a  bit like a theremin, but on steroids (I guess there is a lot of programming behind it)

 followed by the always entertaining Alicia Edelweis, this time with a band

and Amorante, who many of us unfortunately left in the middle of the performance as we headed for another concert (honestly it had nothing to do that with the autotuner you used in the song just before we left...)

... of course, by the time I reached the band I left Amorante for, it was so crowded I did not make it to the front to take a photo, so after a while we went to see Čao Portorož

and then I strolled cross the courtyard to finish off my evening with Rush to Relax.

JataC, BibaretJC210120


Remember the opening of the sound installation in the greenhouse I went to on Saturday? Well, today I went to see the creators play it live.

After a fairly busy Saturday

I decided to have an easy Sunday and I went for a long walk with a friend along the river.

No rest Saturday

From the opening of the sound installation (Bibaret JC210120) in a greenhouse

to Neomi's concert in Kino Šiška.

Neomi was joined on stage by my old buddy and together they sang one of his songs that she used to listen to when she was in primary school (how cool is that? I mean musicians connecting, and appearing on the same stage as somebody you used to listen to),

after which I went to a fundraising concert and party organised by the always active Hawlina family (yey for them), with lots of music (a lot of which I missed, I was late after all)

 but I was still there in time to hear a couple of bands and dance a bit.

Haven't seen them in ages

and in the time in between they have made a short film about their trip to Paris (which looked like great fun)

Sometimes it's hard to understand

 how I can see so much beauty 

in this world

and still my mind feels like this so much of the time.
