The thread is a puppet show with musical accompaniment, which is sewing two stories and two different scenes. Absurd of coincidence, which is following two protagonists - Ivan Jakovljevič Bobov and a violinist with a magnet, can be recognized in all of our lives.
About the Group
The Prva Gimnazija Maribor Theatre School was founded in 1997, and since then, it has been the only organised theatre education group for young high school students in Slovenia. It is organised as an extracurricular school activity. In past years, many of our students have gone on to become some of the most proclaimed professional artists in the country, among them are some great Slovene directors, dramaturges and actors. While following the curriculum, students gain knowledge in speech, movement, acting, puppet theatre and experimental theatre. All of the classes are led by professional theatre artists from national theatres, but our main objective is to encourage students’ independent thinking and creative potential. The result is high-quality, innovative a performances in which most of the work is created by the students themselves under the mentorship of a professional leader. Throughout the theatre’s 20 years of operation, students have completed 84 premieres and have attended several festivals at home and abroad (India, Monaco, Spain, Canada, USA, Latvia, Finland, Austria, Great Britain, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Italy, Greece, Estonia ...).
