19th Exodos: Future archives: an Africa focus

17. – 21. April 2015, Ljubljana, various locations

On the theater stages of Ljubljana is returning one of the oldest and most important festivals of contemporary performing arts in Slovenia and the region, EXODOS. 19th edition entitled Future archives: Focus Africa will offer to art-lovers more than twenty events that will show why “the world is catching up with Africa, and not the other way around” (Achille Mbembe / Rem Koolhaas). Visitors will be able to attend a festival program consisting of dance and theater performances, concerts, photo exhibitions, lectures, talks, workshops, films and bazaar. The festival will also have a charitable purpose, since 1 euro from each ticket sold will be donated to UNICEF program helping orphans in Chad.
