"glej" = "to watch"
Glej Theatre is Slovenia’s oldest independent theatre. Founded back in 1970, this experimental venue and production house has been led through the decades by young theatre creators, many of whom are Slovenia’s most well known theatre practitioners today: among others Dušan Jovanović, Janez Pipan, Eduard Miller, Nevenka Koprivšek, Matjaž Pograjc, Bojan Jablanovec, Tomi Janežič, Sebastijan Horvat, Diego DeBrea, Jure Novak, Marko (Mare) Bulc etc.
Glej produces and hosts research theatre projects of up-and-coming directors, who can apply to Glej’s open call. Glej offers a stepping-stone to young directors with professional working conditions, enabling quick and effective personal artistic growth and providing an entry point to a successful theatre career.
In the last few years Glej has been successfully touring festivals across Europe and the United States. Since 2009 the theatre is a member in standing of IETM - International network for contemporary performing arts.
Glej’s privious artistic director Marko Bulc’s vision was to keep Glej a daring urban theatre, dedicated to theatre research and promoting the new and marginal.
With new artistic director Marko Bratuš Glej Theatre will still be bringing audiences an unusual theatre experience, while offering creators a space of uncensored freedom of creation.
