​Students of 7m had a Cultural Day, of Drama – Storytelling. However, they didn’t just write and talk about the stories; they were walking outside, listening to the soundscapes of a sound artist: Manja Ristić – ‘Ontology of Negligence.’ Students learned about Post Modern and Contemporary Theatre practice; a sound walk, where there were no actors, instead the public became actors of their own performance. This performance is an imaginary world, based on emotions which emerge through sounds.
After the walk, the students had to write a story that ran through their minds while on their walk.
Here are some pictures of their walk, searching for abandoned spaces, which became a performance scene.
This Cultural Day was in cooperation with ‘Zavod Cona’ – an Institute of contemporary art, therefore we would like to thank Mrs Irena Pivka and Mr Brane Zorman for their willingness to cooperate with our students!
Students’ reflection: Students were very pleasantly surprised by the experience. They liked walking outside and focusing on an audio art form. They felt a range of emotions, making them observe many details and interpret them to alter in storytelling. Many said that, especially during online learning, they wish to have more days like this, where the surroundings outside turn into a classroom. Listen to some of their reflections here – (1)  (2)  (3
