O sreči se je govorilo med NOVO Tauferjevo predstavo PORTRETI. Tri premjere so se “nadaljevale” v klubu Mladinskega teatra, LJ kjer je SFS studijo “osvetlil” veliko samoportretnih doživetj, ki so bila zabeleža tudi v besedi, izjavami “srečna/srečen sem …”!

ABOUT THE AUTHORS: The project is actually a Group project:

Since portraits are actually at least co-created by those who would make self-portraits and tell their story, the project is actually a group one and everybody participating would be named as an author.

The initial concept made by Ibrahim Spahić. The project, the tool itself, and the aesthetics developed by Bojan Brecelj.
