One of them is Ana Desetnica, an international street theatre festival which has been around for a whopping 20 years. Its locations in the capital include Argentinski park, Slovenska ulica, Park Zvezda, Konzorcij, Ajdovščina and Nebotičnik - in other words, a cluster of places with heavy foot traffic right in the city center. Unsurprisingly, we might add, since the goal of the festival is to transform quotidian places into something special, even if only for a couple of days. What’s more, this enables everyone to be a spectator.
One of the greatest things about street theatre is that it is a very democratic art form - in a way, it is universal, accessible to the young and the old, locals and tourists, wherever and whenever. As such, it brings the city to life and makes it feel like it has a tangible soul.
