When designing the new season, the artistic director of the Šentjakob Theater in Ljubljana, Rok Andres, wanted to put texts on stage that would connect theater creators and at the same time address modernity after years marked by covid.

Moliereadaptations of several Molière texts with a common title Country, this is me directed Milan Golobwhich is still part of last season, will open a new game Jasmin Kovic Complete strangerswhich was based on the motifs of the film Paolo Genovese. All in all, the new season will feature four premiere performances.
Complete strangers will open the season on October 13. Performance by a foreign author Jasmin Kovic is produced in co-production with the SKPD theater “FB Sedej” Števerjan in Italy. “Dramedy”, as the author described the play, brings comic complications, which also open up more serious questions about relationships and digitalization. Jasmin Kovic is also the author of the adaptation and translation of the dramatic text based on the film of the same name, which, in her opinion, is one of the best contemporary Italian comedies.
This year, the premiere of the comedy will also take place William Shakespeare Much ado about nothing directed Matjaž Šmalec, who will work with an 18-member cast.
