Conceived and Devised by Anita Wach & Bojan Jablanovec
Ljubljana, Slovenia & Warsaw, Poland
Hundred Toasts is celebration. We celebrate a farewell to the romantic idea of the artist producer and welcome the artist consumer. The artist as embodiment of “true, authentic, genuine human production” nowadays does no longer exist. Today we are faced with an artist – innovator of consumption, maker of various artistic forms of consumption.

'How The Hares are Dying | Private Inventory
Concept & Direction by Magda Stawman-Tuka and Anita Wach
A double bill of ontological insecurity. Wildly differing in style, Wach and Tuka's latest two-handers both play with ideas of disappearance to our sense of being. The episodic ritual of Private Inventory, conceived as a choreography of the hidden, is followed by an imaginary workshop of Joseph Beuys, the setting for an exploration of self-sacrifice and transformation in How the Hares are Dying.

Concept and Performance by Mia Zalukar and Bruno Isaković
Suddenly Everywhere, through movement and encounter of two bodies and their opposite poles, researches influences on our (ir)rational decisions and states of being. We are all woven by our histories, experiences, (in)securities and personal aims for the future. Suddenly Everywhere deconstructs a complicated structure of paths we take and through their gaps intensifies visibility of that not seemingly present.
