Festival Ljubljana


As the summer holidays come to an end, we will once again be holding dance and movement workshops (with final performance) for children undergoing rehabilitation at URI Soča, as part of the project Committed to Steps.  The Ljubljana Festival has been involved in the project alongside Zavarovalnica Sava and URI Soča for a number of years. In 2023 we broadened our cooperation and invited children from the modern dance programme at the Ljubljana Conservatoire of Music and Ballet to take part in the project. Children from URI Soča will thus spend a week at the end of August in the company of peers without mobility impairments, forming precious bonds and friendships, gaining experience of dance and stage performance and, above all, having fun. For the second year in a row, the young dancers will be encouraged at this year’s workshops by Jana Kovač Valdés, who last year celebrated 40 years as a dance teacher. She will once again use her wealth of experience to design the overall concept of this year’s performance, entitled Mission: Smog-Hunter, which is certain to meet with an enthusiastic response from the audience. Through the workshop, we will raise awareness about the importance of clean air, look for solutions and think about a better future for our planet. Using humour, music and interactive elements, the performance will inspire children to become guardians of the environment in real life. The dance workshops will run from 19 to 27 August, with the final performance taking place at the Križanke Summer Theatre at 6.00 pm on 27 August.
