Ana Desetnica is an international festival of street theatre, which celebrated its 21st anniversary in 2018. Besides Ljubljana you can watch shows in towns all around Slovenia (Maribor, Krško, Nova Gorica, Novo Mesto, Celje, Škofja Loka,..). In addition to diverse performances for the widest audience, the programme also includes more “message” ideas that thematize the relationship between man and humanity, nature and living beings in it, and, ultimately, art and culture, many of which actively involve the audience and address it, encourage reflection, feedback and / or engagement.
The organizer of Ana Desetnica is Ana Monro Theatre, which is the central street theatre organization in Slovenia. They organize festivals and other public events, carry out various non-formal educational and training programmes, create their own productions, and engage in many international co-operations. With its (free) approachable theatre on the streets across Slovenia and beyond its borders, they address the most diverse audience and change the purpose of ignored urban areas in cities and attract people who otherwise do not attend cultural events.
Besides Ana Desetnica they also orginze Ana Plemenita in autumn and Ana Mraz in winter.
