With the performance A Cry for Humanity - staged poetry of Srečko Kosovel, directed by Renata Vidič and the concert of Vasko Atanasovski Trio, we successfully brought to an end the 11th Festival Kluže.
Traditional festival took place in slightly shortened form of 20.7. till 22.07.2012 in the fortress Kluže, KD Bovec and at the central town square. Despite the financial cuts in the Cultural sector, the festival offered interesting performances for both younger and older audience and brought many visitors.
The festival was opened by the official guest of honour, respectful Slovenian writer Mr. Boris Pahor, whose speech was very well accepted by visitors before the opening performance KOBARID '38 - Chronicle of the Assassination, based on the drama by Dusan Jelinčič, directed by Jernej Kobal and performed by the Slovenian Permanent Theatre in Trieste.
Saturday and Sunday mornings were enriched with children performances from Circus Bufeto.
The festival took place for 11th year in a row and again attracted theatre art and culture lovers to the region of Posočje.
Varied program was implemented in cooperation with the Municipality of Bovec, Bovec Cultural Centre, Local tourist organization and TIC Bovec. The festival was financially supported by the municipality of Bovec and the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports RS.
