Krušče Creative Center for Artistic Research, Creation, Residency and Education is artistically led by theatre director Tomi Janežič and dancer and choreographer Katja Legin.
Krušče Creative Center is a creative property in the hills of Slovenia near Cerknica developing into a small art village where art is being created, shown and discussed. Krušče Creative Center is a place of meaningful encounters with rarely combined worlds and perspectives, a space of inter-professional, inter-generational, inter-local and inter-national bridgings. Its regular activities include also research and educational programs in psychodrama and psychotherapy, as well as pedagogy and other fields that include group work.
Krušče Creative Center is being appreciated for its remote position and the nature that surrounds it. Krušče combines the possibility of retreating into creative solitude in the middle of nature and simultaneous access to motorway connections, the capital and the borders with Croatia and Italy. It nurtures hospitality and long term collaborations. Guests are treated as friends and most of them return to continue to be part of centre’s activities. It is becoming recognized and valued as an important space for investigation and reflection of creativity in Slovenia as well as internationally.
An important part of Krušče’s program is a series of little festivals SPACES, BODIES, CURRENTS and WORLDS and Krušče Little Festival of Psychodrama – five days creative/educational/research retreats that explore creation of temporary communities through experiential workshops, lectures, talks and sharing art in a new context.
