About the performance 

Citizens Dragana and Dragica travelled in 2020. Through the cycling protests, through the points of establishing a new statehood, through the key symbols of Sloveneness. Dressed in national costumes singing those old, good, popular tunes. He who sings does not think badly. The longer they walked, the more they wished they were not so much a citizen, but rather a resident. Now they have arrived at the theatre. It's time for the Jubilee.

What builds and what disintegrates a nation? Who are we and where are we going? What is our identity and how do we transcend it? Is that even possible? Desired? Urgent? In this process, how do we build a relationship with ourselves, with each other and with everything that defines us? How to get rid of the weight of symbols? Is it possible to wash away the sins of the state through symbolic decomposition? What is our alternative? Where do we find freedom? What lies beyond nation, state, humanity? And where in the flood of hard populism is there room for radical tenderness as a point of ultimate resistance to all forms of oppression?

You are invited to attend the jubilee natural and social studies. An affluent, but urgent lesson.

Citizens (2020)

 “It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres; love never fails.” Dragica and Dragana 

Artivistically oriented tactics that address current pressing socio-political issues are implemented in the form of unannounced artistic interventions in public space and protest actions. In doing so, we test the power of various performative tactics, which are based on the spirit of Ljubljana's alternative scene from the 1980s, and adapt their use to the context of neoliberal decay and supervisory capitalism.
