- 12.00 – 16.00: workshop Monolog and dialog (theater of the oppressed), venue: Gustaf
- 19.00: Outopia – training of participatory democracy (production: Pekarna MM), venue: MMC Kibla
In this interactive performance participants are invited to experience the pleasures and traps of political decision making. At a certain point, didn't we all think at least for a moment that we would make a better president or prime minister than any of those "democratically elected" politicians sitting in our current governments?
The performance offers an opportunity to test this in practice. Become members of parliament in this new "people's parliament of Outopia" and participate actively in the shaping of a country's future! Finally, you have the power to change something! But be careful, this power also comes with responsibility. Can you handle all the obstacles in your way, and lead your country towards a better tomorrow, to a real Utopia?

11 February 2017 (venue: Gustaf)

- 17.00: performance by workshop participants: MONODIA
- 19.00 – 21.00: impro-performance: Banda Ferdamana
The curtain goes up. The actor stands still on the stage, the lights pointed toward him. From the darkness in front of them, an unknown voice screams: "You are a big bowl of oatmeal!" He wipes the sweat off hisforehead and begins to imitate a bowl of oatmeal.
Would you like to see more scenes like that? Then join us for  improvisation groups of Banda Ferdamana.
WHAT: improvisational theater, or "impro", is a form of theater where most or all of what is performed is created at the moment it is performed, spontaneously, with suggestions from the audience. Thus, each show is unique and unrepeatable.
WHO: Banda Ferdamana is the most famous impro theater group in the wider Maribor region. For more then 15 years they have been entertaining people and promoting the development of impro theaters in Maribor and the surrounding areas.
- 22.00: end of the micro-festival; concert: MARŠ 27

In the last few decades, in different types of contexts, we come across various concepts related to the so-called intercultural dialog, intergenerational dialog, cooperative dialog and all other kinds of dialogs. Individuals, organizations and institutions are full of concepts, ideas, theories, workshops, projects and calls for dialog, which often exist only as words on paper (or screen) rather than in reality, especially in this era of digitalization, individualism, neo-liberalism and capitalism.
Can dialog exist (at all)? Isn't everything we perceive as dialog, merely a series of parallel and overlapping monologs – monologs between countries, races, genders, family members, partners, social classes? Do we just talk, or do we also listen and hear what someone else has to say? Are we perhaps just switching between 'talking' and 'not talking', instead of focusing on listening and understanding as well? What we say is often not what other people hear, and vice versa.
Community art, also known as "dialog art", includes working with and for people; it includes ideas of establishing a dialog with the community and with artists, of covering community issues and topics, and the inclusion of community.
As a continuation of the Caravan project, when Maribor was hosting the `mobile theatre`, ACE KIBLA presents a micro-event of Caravan Next: Caravan Next tries again to establish a dialog between the local community and its creatives, as well as between creatives themselves, hoping that the efforts we make will not remain only on paper or screen, i. e. in theory, but that they will become a part of reality.
The project/event will bring together different groups, local inhabitants, and creatives in February 2017. They will have a chance to include their work (workshops, performances, music art, (street) theater, photos) in the event program and share it with people and for the people.
The event will take place on different locations in Maribor, from alternative places to public institutions – we want to establish a genuine dialog between creators of the local cultural scene in Maribor.
