Lee and Maja first met in 2003 at the Impro Festival in Berlin. That is when Maja realized her passion for improvisation will last for many years to come. Since then she kept finding coins in her shoes every now and then. Because of their encounter Lee has learnt to love Ligretto and has been voting for communists ever since. Hannu and Maja first met in 2007 at the Inspinazie Impro Festival in Leuven. Since then Ljubljana has become Hannu's second home. This is when he bitterly learnt that he is not unbeatable at starring competitions. Because of their meeting Maja developed a secret desire to be an impro musician and Hannu became the first man who she included in her Young Mothers Facebook group. Lee and Hannu first met in 2014 at the Impro Festival in Berlin and got caught up in a strange situation where they already knew so much about each other but have never met before. Since then Lee gained a lot of respect for bears crossing the Finnish – Russian border and the idea of himself singing on stage became only a little bit painful and not a complete senseless torture anymore. Hannu learnt there were no machine guns or police sirens in medieval times and found a totally new joy in playing with the audience. All three of them have since met and worked together many times. Now they meet again to work together for three days in Ljubljana and to do a show with a working title Another Encounter. The show so far has no clear directions and not even a proper description (whatever usually comes first). But on the other hand there is already so much content to play with. If you are at least as half as curious about what will come out as they are, join them on Tuesday, June 20, at 8pm in KUD France Prešeren. (They have no idea what this cooperation will bring, but for sure they are better in performing than they are in drawing.)

Hannu Risku is a musician, an improviser and a composer from Porvoo, Finland. He is a member of Finland’s premier impro theatre group Stella Polaris and is a founding member of musical impro duo Kaksi Pitkää Miestä (Two Tall Men). He works as a freelance musician in many bands and theatres and has composed music for theatre, circus, contemporary dance and film. Risku has performed in theatre festivals around the world (Ljubljana, Berlin, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Leuven, Tbilisi, Yerevan, Vienna, Halle, Hamburg, Stockholm). He has also composed music for Slovenian Kolektiv Narobov. He graduated as a Pop & Jazz Music Pedagogy from Helsinki Polytechic in 2006.

Originally from Winnipeg Canada, now based in Berlin, Lee White is most known for being part of the famous improv duo CRUMBS. Lee White has been performing and teaching improv (almost) all his life. Touring with shows and workshops all over Europe, Asia and North America, for over 19 years, his unique philosophy of improv has made him welcomed everywhere he goes. Aside from CRUMBS, Lee has been involved in the invention/development of several new shows/formats such as Knowledge and Punishment, Clever: The Live Comedy Game Show, Your 15 minutes of fame, ‘Paradigm’ with Joe Bill, The Lorilees with Inbal Lori, and Winnipeg’s infamous Dungeons and Dragons Improv Show. Lee has performed in countless plays and independent films, television, as well stand up comedy, all over this planet.

Maja Dekleva Lapajne is a director and a performer, the artistic director of internationally acclaimed Kolektiv Narobov and of the Naked Stage Festival and a member of an international theatre collective Orcas Island Project.

Light design: David A. Francky (David and Maja met in 2002 which makes their relationship the longest running relationship. They both grew out the local impro scene and can get extremely nostalgic thinking about or working on cozy, intimate, crazy, daring and funky impro events in KUD. David and Lee met in 2004 in Ljubljana arguing about the right temperature for red wine. After that they did an amazing Crumbs show and at least one of them got very drunk. David and Hannu haven't met yet! Wow! This show is a beginning of a new chapter if not even a complete book.)

The performance will be held in English.
