22nd FAKI — Festival of Alternative Theatrical Expression, dedicated to the topic of social and economic inequality, their causes and consequences – is now accepting applications for its 2019 edition.
We live in a time of dramatic political and technological changes, at highly uncertain times. But one of the constants of our world is the trend of increasing inequality. As demonstrated by numerous studies, the phenomenon of inequality is closely related to violence, crime, mental illness, affecting both the quality and the quantity of human life.
Of course, the focal interest is not only the one of economic inequality. On the contrary – as we spread the discourse to wonder whether gender and racial inequalities are economic or maybe vice versa.
But how does it all reflect on art or more precisely – performing arts? We would like you to help us in finding answers to this question. We are interested in how you as artists – feel and experience inequality through your work, life, and artistic expression.
The outcomes we will consider are addressing this blazing global problem and contributing to the inevitable controversy. FAKI 22 will be considering classical drama as well as post-dramatic, dance and artist performances.
„High levels of economic inequality lead to imbalances in political power, as those at the top use their economic weight to shape our politics in ways that give them more economic power.“ (Joseph Stiglitz)

Festival of Alternative Theatrical Expression – FAKI is an international gathering of artist and theatrical groups that operate outside institutionalized commercial theatres and demonstrate a high artistic reach while encouraging young performers to create the most distinctive expressions. This very general conception practically means that FAKI is a festival of alternative theatre, street theatre, performance, off- and low-budget theatre. FAKI is a central place for an overview of innovative, critical and independent, international theatre and performance scene, maintained by traveling artists and groups whose research on original, experimental and research models of art expression generates universal existential spectacles and performances. By its yearly thematic open calls FAKI aims to fuse artistic practices with socially relevant topics to co-create a public dialogue.Imaš nadopunu, ispravak, bolje fotke, galeriju / video / dojam?
