Stranger than paradise

No, not Jim's film, it's Mark's performance.
(I forgot what the film was all about, I guess I will have to have an early Jim film marathon soon)

A spot of work

 which is sometimes defined as taking photos at a dance performance,
is followed by a spot of fun, which is sometimes defined as taking photos at a concert (see how work and fun can overlap?)

As he likes

to keep his shows small and intimate, he does not announce his shows (which makes it a bit hard for his fans to see him live).

The last time a dancer

in one of my photos said: 'This photo belongs into an anthology,' the photo ended up in the exhibition An Overview of Slovenian Stage Photography 1991 - 2016. I wonder where this one will end up.

There was a point

in the performance at which it seemed that we will all be swallowed up by a huge blob that took over the stage, but then it all returned to normal.

Amela

limited me to 5 shots during the performance and I got totally carried away and took 12 (and as you see, I got this total urge to confess my wrongdoings, but if some parts weren't silent I might have gone as far as taking 20 shots).

This concert was hard

to photograph, as there was a constant exchange of darkness and flashes of light coming from all directions, but I think I managed to take a few good ones.

Metelkova anniversary time

and I felt like I have just spent a couple of years reenacting fear and loathing in Ljubljana, or maybe, I was hired to be George's shadow (the one who does all the work now he is a bit on the old side) in down and out in Metelkova,

So after seeing a couple of openings (the more observant ones amongst you might have noticed this is just one of them, but you will just have to work a bit harder to find a photo or two from the other one)


 and a single concert, I slowly retreated to my hideout.

During a break

in my Sunday work I visited my neighbours where I watched a bit of a dance performance. Unfortunately, I could not stay for the entire three hours, as I needed to return home, finish my work and send it off.

Somehow

we managed to come to the concert just as they announced their very last song... but of course we stayed for the party that followed...

A gentle


concert before I return to the hustle and bustle of what some people like to call the metropolis.

I was happy

that the good people from Krk prepared a concert I could attend while I was here, unfortunately I am not feeling too well during this visit, so I didn't stick around to really party.

While I was translating*

the text for this performance I failed to imagine what it will look like.

*I do not have in mind translating as defined by the Slovenian Ministry of Culture which defines translation as taking photographs, but translating in its old-fashioned definition: a process of translating words or text from one language to another).

A performance

followed by a concert
What more can a man need? (Well, OK, I could think of something, but I will leave that for another time and another place).

After missing

last year's festival (I was in London, so I had a good reason for not attending), and the first few days of this year's (also not in Ljubljana, but not quite as far) I saw a couple of great performances on my first day back... Looking forward to seeing the ones still to come...

Part of the sculpture

park in Liaunig Museum, in Neuhaus,  Austria. Even though I never watched the Teletubbies this part reminded me a bit of their landscape.

Life is

like a Luna Park; at some point you are discarded and put on the pile of junk somewhere at the side as you make room for the new rides.

A graffiti

that wasn't included in the tour, but I thought it made a good photo.
In the evening she came round (or did I go there?) to sing a few songs to me (and maybe some others)
and then these guys came and thrashed the place.
And that was pretty much it for my Friday.

All the different events in a single place

The opening of an exhibition
which was conceived as a response to the exhibition of the guy who created this
 and who has an exhibition on the same floor as the exhibition that includes this work 
and one of the exhibition rooms hosted a concert.
And as this was it for the evening, you get a special wave bye bye.
