Playful Spaces, interactive guided tour with workshop for families (5+)
Behind every set design there are stories - the story of the artist and the stylistic period, the story from the first idea to the realisation and last but not least the story that plays in the drawn set design. In this exhibition From our collections Milan Butina, set designer, we will explore the spaces of acting in a creative way and bring them to life through theatre acting. We will pay particular attention to the stage design for the performance "The Heart of Toys" (Srce igračk), which will also encourage us to create our own work.
From our collections Milan Butina, set designer
As part of the celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the artist's birth, you rea kindly invited to visit the exhibition From Our Collections: Milan Butina, Set Designer at the Slovenian Theatre Institute until 29 December 2023.
Milan Butina is considered the founder of art theory in Slovenia, but he was not only a painter and art theorist, but also a man of the theatre. As a set designer (and often also costume designer) he co-created more than ninety productions. The exhibition at the Slovenian Theatre Institute focuses on the artist's oeuvre as a scenographer. It features a selection of sketches from the period between 1951 and 1967, representing scenographic designs for twenty-four productions - seventeen were staged at the Ljubljana City Theatre, one each in Celje, Trieste and Kranj, and four remained unrealised.
You will be guided through the exhibition will by its author, curator mag. Tea Rogelj.
You are cordially invited!
