City of Women Festival Starts



Highlighted by organisers in the programme have been a music performance by ABCDE_F by Saša Rakef and Jasmina Založnik, and performances by Nataša Živkovič and Simona Semenič.

A special evening at the Stara elektrarna venue will also be dedicated to performance art, which has traditionally had an important role at the festival. Performances are scheduled by Liad Hussein Kantrowicz, Elena Molinaro, Alexis O'Hara and Stephen Lawson.

The music section will feature Portuguese singer Lula Pena among others, while the works of Palestinian artists Raeda Saadeh and Larissa Sansour will be put on display at the ŠKUC gallery.

Films picked by Slovenian philosopher and art theorist Marina Gržinić will moreover be screened at the Slovenian Cinematheque.

This year's festival runs under the title "Survival Tactics", which is something the festival's organisers indicated they have had to resort to following a successful first edition after which the festival has been struggling with inadequate funding
