The book is conceived as a compendium of insights into contemporary Slovene performing arts by home and foreign authors. The original idea is a selective and problem oriented authorial approach, binding critical reflection on the field of contemporary Slovene performing arts into a wider, international context. Problem oriented insights of renowned home and foreign experts in different fields of contemporary performing arts elucidate the facts and strategies which have contributed to the dissemination of the notion of performing during the last fifteen years and thus have had far reaching effects on the entire territory of contemporary performing arts. The book documents a broad spectrum of performing arts which have been developing in Slovenia over the past fifteen years, from experimental and conceptual theatre, ambiental projects, dance theatre to intermedia arts, performance and body art.

The book is the first thorough analysis of contemporary Slovene performing arts in the past fifteen years. Therefore it presents a significant contribution both to the understanding of performing arts as well as to the process of their historicization. Contributions by: Eda Čufer, Marina Gržinić, Simon Kardum, Mojca Kumerdej, Bojana Kunst, Blaž Lukan, Aldo Milohnić, Barbara Orel, Stojan Pelko, Nataša Petrešin, Petra Pogorevc, Katja Praznik, Mojca Puncer, Tomaž Toporišič, Luk van den Dries, Rok Vevar, Ana Vujanović.
