45th Week of Slovenian Drama

1st professional meeting of make-up artists from Slovenian theatre

Creating theatre make-up has two interlinked aspects.
On the one hand, make-up is a work of art, because theatre make-up is an important element of stage expression. Its role in the performance is greatly dependent on the stage concept. Theatre make-up is typically more than just lipstick; it can even carry the greatest part of the visual image for some performances. Together
with a costume it completes an actor’s character. For this reason,designing the make-up for stage demands close creative cooperation with costume designers and directors.
On the other hand, creating theatre make-up requires expertise in different techniques that are constantly developed. Likewise, the visual expression develops with them.In the Slovenian theatre space as well, the theatre make-up has found for itself a creative space, not only as a technical medium, but as an independent expression.
Make-up artists are rarely discussed outside theatre and they receive less attention than some other creators of performances, but just like lighting and sound engineers, together with the actors they create the magic of theatre, night after night, performance after performance. When the creation of actors disappears with the applause and the bow, the masterpieces of the make-up artists disappear with the swipe of a cleansing wipe.
Until the next performance.

There will be a presentation of Temptu products with emphasis on the airbrush technique by make-up artist Špela Veble. Meeting is sponsored by TEMPU.SI
