Pupilija, papa Pupilo pa pupilčki was the iconic event of the Slovene theatric neoavantgarde and one of the most influential experimental performing arts pieces thereof.

2. Baptism under Triglav - A digital projection.
21. 9. 2006, Cankarjev dom, Ljubljana.
A digital reconstruction of the performance Baptism under Triglav by the Theatre of the Sisters of Scipion Nasice, which premiered on 6. 2. 1986
Theatre of the Sisters of Scipion Nasice is one of the cofounders of NSK, the Slovene retrograde movement Neue Slowenische Kunst, along with Laibach (music), Irwin (fine arts) and Novi kolektivizem (design) The aesthetics (connected to the historic avant-gardes of the beginning of the 20th century), iconography (connected with Slovene mythology, tradition and art) and fragmentation into self-sufficient scenes, built from art-history quotes made the performance Baptism under Triglav cause a series of debates and controversial interpretations and become one of the most influential performances in the history of Slovene theatre. It built a new theatre language based on the visual, the kinetic and the audial.
