Running time 1 hour. No intermission.

"Since it has been scientifically proven that in the event of running away from it, the anxiety will surely follow you, let this hybrid dramatic text be a confrontation of fears, a manifesto of desire, a therapeutic experience and a picture of the current political atmosphere."

Omnibus When I Burn (Myself) consists of four individual performances of dramatic and theatrical texts by first-year students of the master's degree programme of Dramaturgy and Performing Arts at the UL AGRFT, Manca Lipoglavšek, Nina Kuclar Stiković, Urša Majcen and Helena Šukljan. The text were created within the course Fundamental Skills of Playwritingwith mentor Žanina Mirčevska. Although the dramatic texts differ greatly both in content and style, they all have in common the same point of departure – a reworking of Andersen’s fairy-tale The Little Match Girl, which is evident in the plethora of motifs of spent matches and burnt girls interchangeably used by the authors.
