In his latest book, Tomaž Toporišič, dramaturg, theatre theorist and professor at UL AGRFT, speculates on how we can decipher dangerous liaisons between the increasingly heterogeneous and schizophrenic dramatic, theatrical and staging texts today. The monograph, published in 2021 by the Ljubljana University Press, is a continuation of his research of the Slovenian, European and world drama and theatre in Badiou’s 20th "century of wars" and "inconsistencies between finishing old and starting
new". In addition, even the 21st century of the "post-democratic society", which we entered seemingly unspectacularly, soon proved to be a new century of biological and other special wars and uncertainties. Based on a systematic analysis, the author has prepared a study in which he discovers new possible perspectives on Slovenian, European and non-European drama, theatre and performance practices, as well as on contemporary Slovenian and European society. Along with the book that is intended
for all lovers of contemporary theatre who want to learn more about their theatre experience in a more theoretical way, the author and guests will reveal both known and unknown landscapes of theatre staging, revealed in the last two decades, mostly due to the Maribor Theatre Festival.
