Mladi levi - festival opening, music and dance

Mladi levi 2012

Festival Opening

The 15th international Mladi levi festival will open its doors on August 23rd at 20.00. The first festival evening will take place at the platform by the Slovene Ethnographic Museum. It will start off with a welcoming speech and continue with the solemn opening of the installation Mobile House (Practice for a Revolution), as conceived by the Japanese author Kyohei Sakaguchi. The installation opening will be followed by an invitation for all guests to see the performance Was ist Maribor? as devised by the authors Aljoša Ternovšek, Sebastijan Horvat, Matjaž Latin, Andreja Kopač and many former employees of the Maribor Automobile and Motorcycle Factory (TAM).

You are all kindly invited to attend the young lions' dance! DJ teoP (Belo Smetje) will be in charge of spinning music, which will blend with a grand video projection by the Japanese video artist Kiyotaka Yoshimitsu to celebrate 15 years of the festival. Yoshimitsu’s video has captured traces left behind by previous festivals and added his authorial touch to this visual reminiscence.   

The chef and innovative creator Primož Dolničar, assisted by the ladies from the Day Care Centre for Activities of the Elderly, will prepare snacks for the festival opening.
