Festival Mladi Levi, Ljubljana
International festival Mladi Levi is one of the more prominent annual events of the Bunker Institute, bringing the most current stage performers from all over the world to Ljubljana every end of the summer, since 1998. It bears a mark of a demanding artistic profile, placed within the arena of contemporary progressive theatre and takes pride in its reputation for discovering young talents. The Festival has a distinctive atmosphere, marked with creativity and vibrant spirit, curious audience and social nature.
Festival Mladi Levi inhabits a place of encounters and surprises, continuously opening up to foreign artists and guests, who take pleasure in art and spread contemporary artistic or social topics in front of one another. It is a place of exchange as well as a cradle of new ideas, friendships and co-operations, which frequently extend beyond the local concepts or borders in the process of their growth.
This year, like everything around us, also Mladi Levi International Festival will be a little different, concentrated on finding and promoting exceptional local artists. During the corona lock down Bunker crew decided to invite eleven artists to create new ideas of possible (or impossible) aristic works and this year’s festival will feature some of these new productions by interesting local artists, among which Mirjana Medojević and Jaka Andrej Vojevec. Slovene artists of the younger generation will also be presented with their new projects, among them Brina Klampfer, Nika Švab, Luka Martin Škof, Tery Žeželj and Ivana Vogrinc Vidali.
