What's So Small Here?


In the beggining of November we are releasing a new book under the label Prehodi XS. We will present it in the frame of this year's Small Art Platform. What's So Small Here?, edited by Maša Radi Buh and Metod Zupan gives an insight to the genres of new circus, contemporary street theatre, puppetry, clowning and improvisational theatre, including the somewhat less visible genres of neoburlesque and cabaret, and about the artists who create distinctly feminist work, engage with LGBTQIA+ forms of expression and critique the status quo with their performances.

The publication contains articles, discussions and workshops that formed the discursive programme of two editions of the Small Arts Platform: the 2021 “Small Arts” Symposium and the 2022 “SmallMinor Arts” Platform. Hans van Maanen, Zala Dobovšek, Maša Radi Buh, Metod Zupan, Irena Ristić and Katja Čičigoj, as well as Maja Delak and Luka Prinčič, offer academic, practical, general and specific insights to outline an in-depth and critical reflection on the Platform’s mission, shed light on the advantages and limitations of the genre designations, principles and forms of expression subsumed under the term small arts and sink their teeth into the individual aspects of the genres in question.

The book will be available for viewing and purchase between November 2 and 5 during the Small Arts Platform at the Mladinsko Theatre. You are especially invited to the presentation of the book with the editors on Sunday, November 5, at 8:00 p.m.
