…Carmina Slovenica is the musical answer to Bausch's groundbreaking concept of Tantztheater… provocative pastich… the true highlight is the singing. Indeed, Šilec has helped to shape these young women into crack musicians…
BABA is a canvas on which the contents of society's consciousness, its beliefs, the history and the present, knowledge and delusions are projected. It reminds us of the narrow-mindedness of the society that condemns every step and every action; it sang praises to women with a vocabulary adorned with the notions such as tradition, family, honour, and dignity, and hiding mythomania and misogyny behind them. It reminds us who created and buried the heroines Flora, Liljana, Suni, Lindita.

...Threnos established a crossroads between art and death, and Karmina Šilec and the collective of her musical theatre established a collective creative process that we have missed so much lately.
…Threnosonce again reminded us of the excellence of the Carmina Slovenica collective, of the exploring all the boundaries of music and the stage. The exciting meta-composition and suggestive execution functioned powerfully and convincingly in all its elements. ...
Which is particularly relevant at a time when the global pandemic tragedy is showing itself as a reflection of this human attitude towards animals and the greed of modern industry, especially meat processing. With the idea of the triangle man-animal-machine, sound processing of the human voice was also introduced, which represents an aspect of the machine (with the help of digital rumours) and is reminiscent of the fragility and vulnerability of human/animal (voice) and the
extensibility of life, the living. It is about the consciousness and respect for life, that is, about that different understanding of the world and nature which puts in the foreground the right to life of all living beings in the conditions of the "economy of death", of the killing (of animals). This economy touches not only on the question of people's attitude towards animals, but also on people's attitude towards people, of people towards nature.
