The year-long programme Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature presents an event with a sensorial approach conceived by Barabara Pia Jenič.

The first public presentation takes place on Summer Museum Night, on Saturday, 16 June, at the Švicarija Creative Centre in Tivoli Park.

Švicarija, the house in Tivoli Park, has swapped many identities during the course of its existence, many people have found shelter behind its walls, and its uses have changed over time. It is a space filled with individual and collective meanings. Švicarija has, among other things, functioned as a guest house, a hotel, a residence for those on the margins, an art production centre, a material reference to the identity of its inhabitants, as well as a home. (A. Boštjančič, Identitete neke hiše [Identities of a House], 2015)

At the workshops, the participants linked the sensorial theatre language to the cultural heritage of the Tivoli Hotel: we listened to the history of the building through various perspectives of sensual perception. On Summer Museum Night, visitors will be taken through the originally conceived and staged snippets of  its history. 

There are 30 places available each hour to experience the sensorial guided tour of the snippets of the lives of the people in Švicarija. Reservations are released 15 minutes before the event, so please make sure that you take your ticket at the box office 15 minutes before the beginning of the event. Please leave your luggage and personal items at home. You enter the event with eyes blindfolded and with no personal luggage. We apologise for any inconvenience!
