Streamed live on Mar 31, 2022The event Brati Cankarja – Reading Cankar is a logical continuation of the project Cankar Goes West, which we presented last year with its new translations of Ivan Cankar’s plays into English. The project was led by the Prešeren Theatre Kranj and the Crane Creations Theatre Company in Canada, whose Artistic Director is the Slovenian director Andreja Kovač. With these new translations of plays by Ivan Cankar, who has already been described as the "undiscovered Central European Ibsen", the Week of Slovenian Drama thus continues to promote Slovenian drama abroad. Now we have invited theatre experts to read different plays by Cankar and, during a moderated debate, give their opinions about them and speak about possibilities of their staging internationally.
A segment from the reading performance of the English translation of Cankar’s Beautiful Vida performed by the Little Lion Theatre will be shown at the round table.
Participating experts: Jure Gantar (Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada), Andreja Kovač (artistic director, Crane Creations Theatre Company, Mississauga, Canada), Vijay Padaki (Bangalore Little Theatre Foundation, Bangalore, India) and Kay Brattan (artistic director, Little Lion Theatre, London, UK). Moderator: Tatjana Ažman (Slovenian Centre ITI) The event will take place in the Škrlovec Tower Gallery and will be live-streamed online here.

Click Campaign: Stories From Home
Welcome to Little Lion Theatre Company's Click Campaign Video for Stories From Home: A New Play Series. Meet some of the members of our team and find out more about this amazing and unique project, and what it means to them! Stories from Home is the first instalment in Little Lion Theatre Company's new play series. Over our three performances, we will present 15 pieces of original writing from a diverse group of Canadian playwrights who have been paired with a UK based director. From a possible cake-based intergalactic crime to a relationship-shifting cross country road trip via the secret behind the success of a small-town Chinese-Canadian restaurant, Stories from Home will showcase some of the best emerging talent from the Canadian theatre community right here in London, England (not Ontario).
