Since last October, experienced improvisers have been pushing the boundaries of their performance skills competing against each other in improvisational disciplines. The improvisers take prompts for their scenes from the audience that also determines the winners of each competition.
On the League’s final day, 11 June, you can provide one last cue for the scenes and decide on the winners of the 2023 season! Only two teams will make it to the grand final at Cankarjev dom, this year taking place in the beautiful Štih Hall, a theatre-in-the-round, which adds extra depth and flavour to the suspenseful improvised performance!
Experience the inimitable authenticity of improvised performance and observe how your suggestions help develop a crazy story on stage. All options are open, all plot situations possible, all ends happy and sad until they solidify on stage in a scene that can only happen once, extemporaneously, with that particular audience, and never again.
Awards acknowledging the finest achievements in the current season will be presented after the funny and entertaining show.
The following teams have competed in this season’s Impro League: Banda Ferdamana, Brand new, Improholics, Milijoni, Kamijoni, Glumissimo, SNiG A and SNiG 1.
Impro liga (Impro League) is Slovenia’s programme of improvisational theatre taking place since 1993. The greater part of the League is usually held as a national competition of impro theatre groups, with the programme serving as a point of intersection for Slovenian improvisers.

Through fiction, Los combatientes – perhaps a novel, perhaps a theatrical play – tells a true story of representation and reality, of enforced radicalism and authentic transgression, about art as provocation and provocation as art. The protagonists, young members of a theatrical group who seek to express their contempt for society through art, ridicule all respectable figures, beginning with themselves, their actor colleagues and ending with the great writers. In doing so, grounding their philosophy in the old avant-garde principle of glorifying the young, the group members turn their youth into a frenzied historical category, which turns them not only into theatrical but also political actors, since reality can only be portrayed through derision. Cristina Morales builds a provocative generational portrait stemming from the generation gap, the lack of understanding in today’s society and the anomalies of modern life. On the formal level, the innovative writing approach and masterly use of intertextuality are complemented by the content that, through humour and irony, invites critical reflection and distrust of the current social order of capitalist and patriarchal dictatorship.
The novel has been translated into Slovenian by Veronika Rot.
Cristina Morales (1985) is celebrated by the literary world as one of the most talented, innovative, radical and expressive Spanish authors of the younger generation. She studied law and political science with a focus on international relations. Author of four novels (Los combatientes – The Fighters, Últimas tardes con Teresa de Jesús, Terroristas modernos and Lectura fácil) and a book of short stories, La merienda de las ninas, Cristina Morales is known for her harsh criticism of social, political and media structures and ideologies. Her works have received several national and international awards. In 2021, she was named a Granta Best Young Spanish-Language Novelist. Morales works with the contemporary dance company Iniciativa Sexual Femenina and is executive producer of the punk band At-Asko.
The talk will be held in Spanish, with simultaneous translation into Slovenian.
The song describes the building of a fortress on the Bojana River at Skadar by three Mrnjavčević brothers. They've been building the fortress for three years but failed to lay even the foundations. Whatever they built during the day, was destroyed overnight by a mountain vila (a fairy similar to a nymph, in Slavic mythology). To build the fortress, one of the brothers had to wall up his young wife alive within the walls of the fortress as a human sacrifice demanded by the vila.
This song was first published in 1815 in a version recorded by Vuk Karadžić from the singing of a Herzegovinian storyteller named “Stari Raško”. Vuk Karadžić sent a copy of his folksong collection to Jakob Grimm, who described it as “one of the most touching poems of all nations and all times”. Johan Wolfgang von Goethe, who did not share Grimm’s opinion, published the German translation at his suggestion despite finding the poem’s motif “barbaric”.

Xavier Bobés' Corpus is an intimate encounter between sculpture, animator and musician in a space where a reflection on the relationship between the human, animal and plant body unfolds. The poetic scenic dialogue raises questions about practises of objectification and seeks to find a way of interpreting, transforming and presenting them. Through the interconnections between the living and the objectified body, the rich possibilities of transformation are revealed on stage. The body is a journey between the human being and its form, which slowly dissolves, shrinks and finally disappears.
Concept, performer: Xavier Bobés; sculptural creation: Gerard Mas

Marko Pogačnik's Workshop 2022
Marko Pogačnik’s Cankarjev dom workshop has been held every winter for the past 39 years with the aim of repeatedly inquiring into the meaning of human existence on Earth, into today’s transformation of space and human attitudes towards other living beings.
Marko Pogačnik will talk about his discoveries of the strong love bonds found in nature that connect mountains, bodies of water, forests and all other earthly creatures. Stretching as invisible membranes across different levels of space, these bonds invite us to abandon the restraints of rationality and engage in the song of life.

Four young audiences aged 5+
From the Belly of an Anaconda” is the first production of a new, original Slovenian children’s musical written for a children's choir, young actors, dancers and piano. We will accompany Tinka Tonka on her adventurous journey from the tropical rainforests, the Pampas of Argentina, the Andes and all the way down to the southernmost point of the South American continent.
In her intrepid travelogue, Tinka Tonka hastily records her unforgettable encounters with a spectacled bear, piranhas, a macaw, anaconda, toucans, a viscacha, llama, condor, blue poison dart frog and a blue whale. As some of these animals can only be found there, in South America, she’s absolutely thrilled to make all these new friends. She's only surprised by the humidity of the rainforest and the oxygen-thin air in the Andes mountains. But Tinka Tonka – enchanted by the rich variety of the local animal life – doesn't care much about these slight inconveniences. She can’t really worry about that when there are so many unpredictable obstacles to overcome, haps and mishaps from which she needs to extricate herself to save her skin and, in doing so, also help others.
Pesmi za otroški pevski zbor in klavir, ki so sestavni del glasbene igre Iz trebuha anakonde, je po naročilu Glasbene matice Ljubljana uglasbil skladatelj Bojan Glavina in bodo tokrat izvedene prvič. Poudarjajo znanje in izkušnje skladatelja tako v obravnavi pevskih glasov kot inštrumentalni spremljavi. Pianist spretno izkorišča zmožnosti glasbila, ne samo kot inštrumentalne spremljave, ampak tudi kot posebnega protagonista pri slikanju okolice, značajev in razpoloženja. Pedagoško je pozoren na ustvarjanje napetosti in zmožnosti zbranosti najmlajših poslušalcev, hkrati pa mladim interpretom zagotavlja obilo užitka ob izživljanju svoje nadarjenosti. Glasbeno podobo podčrtujejo še ritmični in zvočni učinki, ki izrisujejo pravljično podobo izbranih živali.
Pesnik, pisatelj, ilustrator, fotograf in naravovarstvenik Tomaž Vrabič je predan literarnemu ustvarjanju za najmlajše, poznan je kot avtor otroških pravljic, zgodb, slikanic in glasbenih iger, kot so Čarovnica Kira, Poredni volk, Nasukani strah, Artis v svinjaku, Kolodvor letnih časov idr. Njegova pustolovska žilica in poklicna radovednost arhitekta sta ga vodili po širnem svetu. V oddaljenih krajih je našel navdih za knjigo Pozdravi iz divjine, ki je literarna predloga dveh glasbenih iger Afriški živalski raj in Iz trebuha anakonde. Več njegovih pesmi so uglasbili sodobni slovenski skladatelji. Najlepše izmed pisateljevih pravljic pa so bile izdane na glasbeni zgoščenki.
Skladatelj, pianist in organist, klavirski pedagog, publicist in predavatelj Bojan Glavina se v slovenskem in mednarodnem prostoru uveljavlja kot izjemen ustvarjalec glasbe za otroke in mlade, saj ji je posvetil več kot polovico svojega opusa. Glasbeni strokovnjaki posebej izpostavljajo neposrednost njegovega glasbenega jezika, iskrenost in izvirnost glasbenih idej. S subtilnostjo in občutljivostjo nagovori otroško domišljijo in otroke spodbudi k radoživemu poustvarjanju, hkrati pa jim razširja obzorja v svetu nove zvočnosti in zanimivih ritmov, ki nikakor ne pristajajo na populistični okus okolja.
Klara Kastelec je igralka, ki se na odru »slači« v Rumeno. In kadar se ne, se oblači v vse barve vmes, ki še čakajo, da bodo skočile na oder. V slovenske, španske in portugalske besede. Radovednost in vprašanja. Znanja in odkrivanja. Načrte in odskočne deske. Krošnje dreves. Tek, visečo mrežo in nebo nad glavo. Drn in strn. Kavo in vonj po njej. Pike in rože. Barvice in svinčnike. Črke, pesmi in jezikanja. Knjige pod odejo in kakavom nad njo. Ples in tišino. Kuhalnice in žlice. Objektive in motive. Potepanja in potovanja. Ljudi in njihove mavrice. Skrivnosti, kolesa in veter v laseh. Sladoled in prijatelje. Morje in daljne dežele. Sonce in metafore v oblakih. (Ne)rojstnodnevna ušpičenja in presenečenja. Podivjanost in prismuknjenost. Skakanje po lužah ali ljuba kroglica pregelk, nikdar nočem biti velk. Včasih na glavo, včasih postrani, nikoli na pol. Ko gre vse narobe, pa na pomoč pokliče Piko Nogavičko, Medveda Puja in Jelko z dežnikom, zamiži in izdahne: »Mene ni!«
Otroški pevski zbor Glasbene matice Ljubljana je bil ustanovljen leta 2005 z namenom, da bi otrokom približali kakovostno, predvsem slovensko zborovsko literaturo, jih navduševali za ubrano zborovsko petje, za skupinsko poustvarjanje in jih skrbno vodili skozi pevski razvoj. Zbor redno nastopa in sodeluje tudi pri večjih glasbeno-scenskih projektih, kot so bili ABC (Marjan Kozina), Pedenjped (Karol Pahor, Tadeja Vulc, Matevž Goršič idr.), Gal v galeriji (Tadeja Vulc), Kaznovana radovednost (Pavel Šivic), Brundibar (Hans Krasa), Obiski pri Cuckih (Vitja Avsec) in Afriški živalski raj (Tomaž Vrabič, Anton J. Kropivšek). Pomembna so tudi snemanja za Radio Slovenija in različne založbe (Mladinska knjiga, založba Grafenauer, založba Panika). Kadar zbor nastopi v glasbeno-igrani predstavi, kot je bila predstava Afriški živalski raj in tokrat Iz trebuha anakonde, k sodelovanju povabi tudi mlade igralce.
Oddelek za sodobni ples Konservatorija za glasbo in balet Ljubljana deluje od leta 1963. Plesne pedagoginje ves čas zelo uspešno skrbijo za plesno izobraževanje osnovnošolske mladine v treh razredih plesnih pripravnic in šestih razredih sodobnega plesa. Vsebine se med šolanjem razvijajo, stopnjujejo se kompleksnost in ozaveščenost obvladovanja telesa ter spoznavanje, utrjevanje in uporaba osnov različnih plesnih tehnik. Ustvarjajo se pogoji, da se otroška ustvarjalnost, sposobnost izražanja z gibom in neustavljiva sposobnost vživljanja v domišljijski svet razvijajo od najzgodnejših let pa tja do končanega šolanja in še naprej. Učenci uspešno sodelujejo na različnih prireditvah, tudi zunaj okvirov šole, enkrat letno se predstavijo na letni predstavi v Cankarjevem domu.
