Information about institution: 

Bunker is a non-profit organization for the realization and organization of cultural events. Bunker produces and presents contemporary theatre and dance performances, organizes different workshops and other educational programmes, carries out various research methods in the field of culture and brings together one of the most noted international festivals, the Mladi levi festival.

The aim of Bunker is to refresh and invigorate the Slovene cultural space with innovative approaches. We encourage the mobility of artists and their works both in Slovenia and abroad; and promote the intertwining of different art disciplines. We create a space, which allows the exchange of experiences, knowledge and interests among artists and various audiences. Bunker tries to stimulate discussions regarding various artistic practices and subjects; and to create artistic programmes and events that reflect upon topical social, ecological, political and cultural issues.

In 2004, Bunker was awarded the management of the Stara mestna elektrarna – Elektro Ljubljana in Ljubljana during the public tender period initiated by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia. The programme in the Stara elektrarna consists of theatre and dance performance productions, in an educational manner and also strictly performance based. Besides this, we are hosting other festivals, concerts and various interdisciplinary events. Bunker actively collaborates with numerous artists, theatres, festivals and networks within Slovenia and abroad.
