25.672 wins the Gazeta Wyborcza Torun Award for the most insightful diagnosis of contemporary reality at the international theater festival Kontakt - Torun, Poland. The original project 25.671 is a performance that confronts the spectator with a reality so sharp and cruel, that only reality itself has the capacity to be so sharp and cruel. With a weighed selection of diverse theatre processes, already deliberated until almost manipulative dimensions, it collages documentary with acted scenes and the personal intimacy of the performers with bits of the wider spiritual fresco of the existing society; and thus with merciless directness demands from all those present the questioning of their conscience, but also uncovers the long forgotten possibility of catharsis.
This years Šeligo Award goes to the production 25.671 of the Prešeren Theater Kranj. The Šeligo Award is delivered annually for the best performance of a Slovene play at the Week of Slovenian Drama. 25.671 is also invited to the following festivals: Theater festival Kontakt in Torun, Poland.

We are proud to announce that the production 25.671, directed by Oliver Frlić, received "The Association of Theatre Critics and Researchers of Slovenia AWARD 2013" which is given annually to the best production of the year. The production 25.671 is a show that confronts the viewer with reality so harsh and cruel as only reality itself can be so harsh and cruel. With a considered range of various performing procedures, which extend to an almost manipulative dimensions, it mixes documentary collages with live-action scenes and personal intimacy of the performers with debris of spiritual frescos of an existing society. It requires with merciless directness a questioning of ones own consciousness and at the same time uncovers a long forgotten possibility of catharsis. The production 25.671 sheds light on the unresolved and horrendously volatile position of those who were erased from the records of citizens with permanent residence in Slovenia on 26 February 1992. The consequences of this act were tremendous as the loss of right to permanent residence also meant the loss of various benefits, which brought many a people to the existential edge. The production doesn’t merely focus on the chronology of the erasure but also strives to confront spectators with a certain state of mind and our relation towards the foreign and the unknown, towards fear and contempt. It is time for us to begin reflecting upon the erased. In order to raise the voice outside the theatre hall, the authors walk the thin line between stage and auditorium, between political agitatinion and theatre illusion. A production that is in fact the confrontation of each spectator, each individual, with oneself and with one’s personal attitude.
