The season ticket subscription package Festival of Foreign/European Theatre presents guest companies from abroad to the Slovak National Theatre. We would like to build on the popular Eurocontext and bring the work of our partner and allied theatres and distinguished guests closer to our audiences. In the 2024/2025 season, we have prepared five guest appearances from four countries in five interesting Eurocontexts. We spread out the guest appearances gradually throughout the season to make foreign theatre experiences accessible. As early as in September, we will welcome the world Comédie-Française to the Slovak National Theatre for the third time. It comes with the title Hecuba, based on the ancient play by Euripides, but which will also expand the contemporary story of the actress who interprets the title character. The productions about the power of women will be directed by Tiago Rodriguez, currently the director of the Avignon International Theatre Festival. The second title in November will be a guest appearance by the national theatre from Slovenia, Drama Ljubljana. They will present Lucy Kirkwood's Children, directed by Nina Shorak. One of the best contemporary plays by an award-winning British playwright raises profound moral and ethical dilemmas in which we find ourselves in times of crises and disasters. The intelligent and humorous dialogue of the three strong protagonists, stars of the National Theatre in Ljubljana, is also about ageing, but also the changing reality of the present. In December, we will host our friends from the National Theatre in Prague with the production of Choderlos de Laclos' Dangerous Liaisons, directed by the duo SKUTR (Martin Kukučka and Lukáš Trpišovský). The dangerous games with emotions, relationship strategies and manipulations, and the web of love polygons are an original take on a popular substance. In February, we will present to our audience a co-production between the Drama Theatre of the Slovak National Theatre and Schauspielhaus Wien. The author of On the River/Am Fluss is Mazlum Nergiz, and the director is Christiane Pohle. The cast includes members of the SND Drama Theatre, Richard Stanke and Jakub Rybárik. About the world between two rivers and the dialogue across the world. A special guest performance is DJGT Zvolen's production I love mama, starring Božidara Turzonová. The author and director is the prominent Israeli filmmaker Hadar Galron. A look at nine women and three generations of one family opens up the themes of motherhood and career and family relationships with astonishing insight.
