Op. 1: homo faber is a hybrid work, a musical-visual project that breaks down the boundaries between disciplines and aims to create a space for opening up thoughts, perceptions, experiences.

Starting point is in an intimate - an ancient - an eternal companion: the personal fear of / against ageing. Santiago is a priest of time, a timeless monument of power of the will which defeats an age. The project is a meditation on his willpower replacing the power of the flesh; and on wisdom, pride and humility replacing the arrogance of youth as the victory of the spiritual will.

The Life and Death of Stana
opera BABA: The life and death of Stana
Concept and music: Karmina Šilec
Performers: KITKA and guests
BABA is inspired by the sworn virgins – the women who, after taking vows of chastity, adopt a man's name and identity, wear men's clothes, do men's work, smoke, drink rakia, play the gusle ... and join the men's world.
The music theatre will draw on anthropological research on this practice to develop a multi-faceted performative form.
