Established in 1997 by Nevenka Koprivšek, Bunker Institute is a non-profit organisation that mainly produces and presents contemporary theatre and dance performances as well as works located at the intersection of art and activism. It organises one of the most noted Slovene international theatre and dance festivals, the Mladi levi ("Young Lions") Festival.

It also manages the performing arts venue Old Power Station in Ljubljana. The facilities are used for rehearsals, educational activities, and – naturally – also stage performances.


Stara Elektrarna venue

Since 2004, Bunker has been running the performing arts venue Stara Elektrarna - Old Power Station in Ljubljana. The programme consists of theatre and dance performance production, concerts, educational activities, and presentations of different art projects.

Production

In its productions, Bunker focuses on works that employ innovative approaches, intertwine different art disciplines, as well as offer reflections on topical cultural, political and social issues.

Besides producing works by different performing arts and dance makers, Bunker has recently been producing research-based works that respond to global issues, such as migrations, ecological awareness etc., in collaboration with international artists.

In the period 1999–2014, Bunker was the producer of the physical theatre group Betontanc. Since 2016, it has been managing its spin-off project Beton Ltd.

Festivals

Since 1998, Bunker has been organising the annual international festival of theatre and dance Mladi levi. Taking place at the end of summer, the festival showcases groups and artists with distinctive and original ideas and disciplines from all over the world.

Together with the Second Grammar School in Maribor, in 2002, Bunker co-organised the first Drugajanje Festival, which aims to affirm contemporary dance and theatre art among the young with a programme of performances, workshops, and lectures.

Educational activities

Bunker has been running the pilot project of cultural education Theatre Playground that seeks to bring contemporary theatre to schools all over Slovenia and engage participating students not only as consumers of art but also as creative producers.

International projects

Bunker has a long history of participating in various international cooperation and collaboration projects which have garnered support from different funding programmes of the European Commission (see the list of projects with links to descriptions in the right-hand column). It is (or was) a member of the following international networks: Junge Hunde, Theorem, International Network for Contemporary Performing Arts (IETM) and its satellite subgroup Balkan Express, and Danse Bassin Mediterranéen – DBM.

Bunker is part of the Create to Connect -> Create to Impact (CtC -> CtI) project, a Creative Europe-supported joint effort of 15 European arts and research partners from 13 European countries to create powerful and long-lasting connections of artists, cultural operators, researchers, and audience and develop contemporary theatre activities with an aesthetic, political, and social impact.

Besides participating in or leading numerous international projects, Bunker also organises international discursive forums and discussion evenings.
