This review discusses several productions from last year's festival program (competition and additional shows) in the context of social crisis and the aesthetics of the grotesque in drama and theatre. One outstanding example is the winner of the Borštnikovo Grand Prix, Crazy Locomotive directed by Jernej Lorenci, while other shows exhibited performance aesthetics as a strong tradition in Slovenian theatre (Oliver Frljić, Dragan Živadinov, Irena Tomažin).
