Street dance performance
ACT Women (Serbia): My Body, My Territory
A socially engaged performance about sexual violence against women. It is dedicated to sexual abuse survivors and addresses the complex process that women who have experienced it go through: from the moment of rape to the point when they decide to report it to the police and dare to say: »Rape is never a woman's fault. The perpetrator is the one who should be ashamed.«
An evolving performance that has been presented in several variations. The common thread that connects all versions is the discourse of the under-representation of women in art history, art theory, art institutions, and in the broader collective memory.
The performance is a part of Urban Art Projects, produced by KUD Mreža. Supported by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia and the City Municipality of Ljubljana.

Bibliothèque Érotique will start with a short reading performance in Menza pri koritu and continue their erotic readings (Henry Miller, Marquis de Sade, Audre Lorde, Anaïs Nin ...) in a more intimate manner in A-Infoshop, which will get a make-over for this special occasion, arranged by Ljubljana's own Red Cabaret. The audience is invited to discover, through sight, taste, touch and sound, an enhanced experience for their erotic fantasies. Consensus, respect and enjoyment will constitute the precepts of ‘Boudoir des Sens’.

chra & Cherry Sunkist (Austria): black black black black nr.1
The sound performance takes place in complete darkness, allowing the listener to rely on her ears and imagination, rather than her eyes; to experience sound in a public, yet intimate, setting. Their experimental mix of pop, dub, minimal techno, and ambiental electronic music is played at different volumes, and from different angles, encouraging the audience to approach this ever-changing soundscape actively, by moving through space and in between other listeners. .
Price for both events in Menza: 7 eur, 5 eur (students upon submission of an identity card, pensioners, persons with disabilities, unemployed and self-employed in culture). Supported by the City Municipality of Ljubljana - Department of Culture
