Women's festival named Rdeče zore was organised for the first
time in year 2000 by KUD Mreža. Four festival's sites were placed at
AKC Metelkova mesto. Already the next year,drawn in by the programme
and mode of work, some other places in Slovenia - MC Podlaga (Sežana),
Pekarna magdalenske mreže (Maribor) and Mostovna (Nova Gorica) - took
part in the festival, thus giving to the festival and its idea new dimensions.
In spite of the festival's territorial, programme and time swing Rdeče
zore with its voluntary, artistic, cultural and political charge
does not leave the frontiers of marginal and remains exactly what it
wants to be - a women's pocket festival.
The roots of Rdeče zore are autochthon female creativeness of
AKC Metelkova mesto which , from the early beginnings widens horizons
and enriches experiences with international participation of spectacular
heterogeneous female artists and activists (coming mainly from ex-Yugoslavian
Republics and Eastern European countries). With its constructive - do-it-yourself
- principle festival Rdeče zore supports and unites those female
creators whose unique and original way of expression presents an active
way of expressing their beliefs, views, criticism and emotions. Therefore
all the planning. organisation, co-ordination and realisation of the
festival reflects entirely women's work.
The name of the festival was taken from a children's book named Rdeča
Zora. Rdeča Zora is the name of a beautiful, young, red-haired
partisan rebel heroine. Right so "rebelliously" beautiful
seems to be the creativeness, work and socialising with female artists
and activists, whose daring and original acts question beforehand determined
natural and social determinants of femininity and manhood.
In Slovenian language expression "rdeče zore" marks
another phenomenon namely, red coloured sky at sun-rise - the symbol
of engaged future for us, female creators of the festival.
The fifth festival Rdeče zore will take place between 6th
and 13th March 2004, displaying women's artists and co-creators
of the festival to the audience through concerts, exhibitions, plays,
performances, artistic video films, presentations and lectures.
