Festival Description

FAKI is an alternative theater festival with twelve year tradition. The main idea of the festival is to gather people from different countries who are engaged with theatre activities outside commercial theatrical institutions, encourage young performers and produce quality and contemporary performances. Practically, this means that FAKI is a festival of alternative theatre, street theatre, performance and off- and low-budget theatre. The festival will offer presentations, workshops and (in) formal discussions and conversations among performers, organizers and the festival audience, as well as the actual theatre acts. FAKI is organized by ATTACK! (Autonomni kulturni centar). non-profit, nongovernment, non-partisan, volunteer civil organization that aims at creating and spreading an alternative to the dominant culture, policy and economy.

  • About FAKI
    • FAKI (Festival of Alternative Theatrical Expression) is a non-profit theater festival that supports subversive and marginal theater projects. The festival is organized by the Autonomous Cultural Center ATTACK! (formerly Autonomous Culture Factory). This is the 11th year FAKI is taking place.
  • What are subversive and marginal theater projects?
    • Any groups or individuals that practice some form of theater but are impossible to fit existing streams, directions or movements. What connects these is subversion: it can shock, warn or simply comment on the dominant culture using the language of theater.
  • FAKI is non-profit
    • This means that all programs are free. The festival does not make profit. All income is used to cover the expenses according to the yearly financial plan. FAKI is funded through donations and sponsorships. FAKI is open to all sponsors, but its non-profit character does not favor the advertising of very big sponsors. FAKI does not provide fees for performers.
  • FAKI is looking for an alternative to the theater we know.
    • When different marginal groups get together, ideas and styles are mixed and exchanged. During the festival, groups and individuals transform through mutual inspiration. FAKI is not only a festival, it’s a gathering: a gathering for the occupation of public space and its contamination by alternative expression.
  • About ATTACK!
    • ATTACK! is a non-partisan, non-profit, non-governmental, voluntary citizens’ association that creates and spreads alternative culture, politics and economy. ATTACK!'s goal is to give publice space and a creative voice to everyone who is dedicated to change on local level that leads to a free society.
