Stara Elektrarna venue
Since 2004, Bunker has been running the performing arts venue Stara Elektrarna - Old Power Station in Ljubljana. The programme consists of theatre and dance performance production, concerts, educational activities, and presentations of different art projects.
In its productions, Bunker focuses on works that employ innovative approaches, intertwine different art disciplines, as well as offer reflections on topical cultural, political and social issues.
Besides producing works by different performing arts and dance makers, Bunker has recently been producing research-based works that respond to global issues, such as migrations, ecological awareness etc., in collaboration with international artists.
In the period 1999–2014, Bunker was the producer of the physical theatre group Betontanc. Since 2016, it has been managing its spin-off project Beton Ltd.
Since 1998, Bunker has been organising the annual international festival of theatre and dance Mladi levi. Taking place at the end of summer, the festival showcases groups and artists with distinctive and original ideas and disciplines from all over the world.
Together with the Second Grammar School in Maribor, in 2002, Bunker co-organised the first Drugajanje Festival, which aims to affirm contemporary dance and theatre art among youth audiences with a programme of performances, workshops, and lectures.
Bunker has been running the pilot project of cultural education Theatre Playground that seeks to bring contemporary theatre to schools all over Slovenia and engage participating pupils and students not only as consumers of art but also as creative producers.
