Curators of the Slovak programme will be from MLOKi

he International Festival Divadelná Nitra 2018 is being already intensively prepared with the subtitle - RE. The theme emerged from the need to change the perception of the world, which is preserved in many concepts containing the prefix RE - RENEW, REPEAT, RESPOND.

The conception and selection of the festival's foreign programme in 2018 are again guaranteed by Dáša Čiripová, Martina Vannayová, Ján Šimko and Ján Balaj.

The curators of the Slovak part of the main programme of the festival will be members of MLOKi, theatre critics Zuzana Andrejcová Ferusová, Katarína Cvečková, Lucia Lejková and Martina Mašlárová.

The MLOKi project was created at the initiative of young critics of theatrical art, who were satisfied neither with professional approach of the theatre community nor with the moderate style of daily press. MLOKi chose the alternative way, though following it means to follow the balance. The members of the association are Zuzana Andrejcová Ferusová, Martin Bujna, Katarína Cvečková, Miloslav Juráni, Lucia Lejková, Martina Mašlarová, Jakub Molnár, Matej Moško and Zuzana Poliščák Šnircová.

White tulip with Afro-American St. Nicholas

Musician, painter, actor, and a giver of happiness, Thierry Ebam in the guise of St. Nicholas visited the White Tulip at the traditional Christmas event.

Just like in autumn at September Tulip during Divadelná Nitra or in spring at May Tulip, and even now in winter, after 10 years on the 5th December  in the Bratislava club A Tulip for You met visually impaired children from Bratislava, seeing children and Iraqi asylum seeking children from Nitra. Together there were up to 55 children.

"It is a true example of integration. Blind children taught seeing the Braille alphabet, Iraqi children showed their font and writing to the left, told their stories about their home which is a thousand kilometres away from them. And finally, they expressed their feelings from these interviews with a help of drawings, and with Thierry they beat a drum, and sang the Silent Night and recently unknown for us Iraqi songs about Jesus. When it got dark, an unusual Afro-American St. Nicholas came with gifts ",  described events the academic sculptor Elena Kárová, who has been running the project A Tulip For You since 2009.
