Curators’ Statement

The performance Future by Žiga Divjak, a co-production between Belgrade Drama Theatre and City Theatre Ljubljana, is one of the two local productions in this year's programme. The Slovenian director continues to explore dystopian visions typical of his style, only this time shifting the focus from an anthropocentric perspective to non-human experiences. This almost nonverbal performance of striking aesthetics tells a story of birds encountering the waste that humans leave behind. Divjak explores the destructive impact of capitalism and consumerism on the natural world, creating a touching piece that urges us to re-examine our relationship with nature.
