Why Dont We Do It in the Road - illustration 02 (by Robin Klengel)

Why Don’t We Do It in the Road is a book for anyone:

… who enjoys creating outdoor theatre performances,

… who is interested in learning about it,

… who is interested in the mechanisms behind it,

… and for anyone who is … well … just generally interested in things.


Why Don’t We Do It in the Road invites you to enter the world of outdoor theatre through the personal experiences, stories and views of performers, directors and pedagogues from across Europe. The book shares their theoretical thoughts as well as practical advices.

Ljubljana, 3rd June 2019

KUD Ljud in cooperation with Slovenian Theatre Institute invites you to the conference on theatre in public spaces.

What is the position of theatre in public spaces in Slovenia? Do the artists who work in public spaces have the same opportunities as the other performing artists? What is the state of education on outdoor theatre in Slovenia? And what kind of a future awaits them?

Join us on the 3rd June from 9 a.m. at the Slovenian Theatre Institute in Ljubljana and help us find answers to these questions. An all day event will include presentations of two recently published books: Why Don’t We Do It in the Road: A Personal Guide to Outdoor Interactive Theatre held by its author Vida Cerkvenik Bren and the Rural Touring Handbook as well as projections of documentary films: Rural Inclusive Outdoor Theatre Education – Three views which have all come to life as part of RIOTE2 project.

On the program there are also two round table discussions: one dedicated to the general position of outdoor theatre in Slovenia and the other on the state of education on outdoor theatre. Among the participants of the discussions will be established artists, festival organizers, professors, pedagogues, representatives of public institutions and non-governmental organizations.

Detailed program including the list of participants can be found HERE (Slovene only).
