TRACKS

Directed by Slobodan Unkovski

Set & Costume Designer: Angelina Atlagić, Dramaturg: Marina Milivojević Mađarev, Music Selection Associate: Nebojša Ignjatović, Choreography: Maja Milanović, Lightning Designer: Svetislav Calić,

One of the key works of modern Serbian drama and a theatrical heritage of a lost generation, the one that came to maturity during 1990′s. In this play exciting scenes of courage and passion follow in quick succession, like in a big theatrical kaleidoscope. These scenes are a testimony that – in a vicious circle of violence – the evil that people do is not a product of a tortured childhood but that it has its roots in the deep, primeval forces that shape man and determine his actions and his relationship with others.

“Tracks by Milena Marković has been turned into a production that will probably become a cult production for the young generations and which should make the slightly older members of the audience to take stock of their own lives and what it is that they had forgotten to do in order to make the world around us a better place.“ (NIN)

“The latest production by the Yugoslav Drama Theatre – Tracks – seems set to become an important play of its generation as well as its symbol.” (BLIC)

Directed by Alex Chisholm

Set Designer: Marija Kalabić, Costume Designer: Jelisaveta Tatić Čuturilo, Dramaturgs:Miloš Krečković, Marija Stojanović, Video: Dušan Udicki, Lightning Designer: Svetislav Calić,

On the surface, this is a story about the return of an old friend after ten years spent abroad and an encounter between best friends after a long absence; this play – one of the most exciting pieces of dramatic writing in Serbia in this century – not only touches upon some of the most difficult and painful issues related to life in this day and age and in this part of the world but also answers some of the eternal and universal questions: honesty and deceit, responsibility towards ourselves and others, about youth, maturity and death.

“It has been a long time since I have felt this happy while watching a play and so sad that it had to end. The actors have what it takes to make us believe that this story written by Uglješa Šajtinac is not only the story of their lives but ours too.” (B92)

“A play by young people for young people.” (POLITIKA)

“The quantity of emotion and excitement that this play has stirred among the spectators, this play can certainly be considered one of the most successful pieces of theatre in the many years of the Budva festival.” (POBJEDA)

“A fantastic cast (…) has managed to achieve what so rarely happens in theatre and is yet the very essence of theatre – absolute attention from the audience, laughter, tears and at the end several minutes of standing ovation from the whole auditorium saluting the artists.” (VIJESTI)

Huddersfield has toured all over Serbia and the region, throughout the Balkans and has been performed at festivals in Novi Sad, Užice, Mladenovac, Zaječar, Brčko, Doboj, Banja Luka and Budva, winning nearly every award there was to win, including three Sterijino Pozorje awards: Uglješa Šajtinac for best new play, Nebojša Glogovac and Goran Šušljik for best actors and four Ardalion awards: best production, best set design (Marija Kalabić), best actor (Nebojša Glogovac) and best supporting role (Josif Tatić).

Shopping & Fucking

Mark Ravenhill

SHOPPING & FUCKING

Directed by Iva Milošević

Translation: Olivera Milenković, Costume Designer: Jasmina Ignjatović, Set Designer:Gorčin Stojanović, Music: Marko Nastić, Lightning Designer: Svetislav Calić

Shopping & Fucking, first (and probably the best) play written by the legendary Mark Ravenhill, represents one of the supporting pillars in a structure created toward the end of 20th and early years of 21st century by authors of new European drama. They sought their topics and their answers in the borderline areas of human soul and human society, believing that the safe and comfortable existence of the western world and the idea of good life and progressive urban society was nothing but a surface under which festered and boiled a different, less affable, but much truer existence – a life replete with perverted sexuality, the need to abuse others and be abused, disease, violence, weakness, desire and love.

Iva Milošević does not seem phased by the type of rebellion Ravenhill’s characters seem to embark upon, and even less prepared to justify their actions or feel sorry for them. Looking at them from her own point of view, the point of view of someone who belongs to the same generation, the director sees their rebellion as a fall from grace and a posture which is nothing but a failed attempt to hide an appalling feeling of contentment with their own demise.” (GLAS)

Shopping & Fucking was performed at the 3rd Golden Lion international theatre festival at Umag, at 48th Sterijino Pozorje festival in Novi Sad and has toured in Podgorica, Smederevo and Pančevo.

Premiere: 21 February 2002

ELIJAH’S CHAIR

Directed by Boris Liješević

Dramatisation: Darko Lukić, Dramatisation Adaptation: Boris Liješević, Dramaturg: Branko Dimitrijević, Set Designer: Gorčin Stojanović, Costume Designer: Maja Mirković, Composer:Aleksandar Kostić, Speech: Ljiljana Mrkić Popović, Lightning Designer: Svetislav Calić, 

Europe. Last decade of the 20th century. Well known author Richard Richter with his fiftieth birthday fast approaching, tired of hopeless attempts to take stock of his life so far and make peace with himself, haunted by the demons of a writer’s block and his marital shipwreck, now behind him, leaves Paris and returns to his native city of Vienna, to the house where he grew up. In that house, while attempting to redecorate his old room, in one of the walls he discovers a notebook that belonged to his mother and in it the whole truth about his family that had remained hidden for half a century. Feeling that it is a part of his own destiny, Richter decides to get to the bottom of this mystery and embarks on a dangerous journey to the besieged city of Sarajevo and on an even more dangerous road of personal discovery….

Elijah’s Chair, the play, is based on the novel by the same name written by Igor Štiks, dramatisation by Darko Lukić and was co-produced with MESS Sarajevo International Theatre Festival. It also won the first prize, Grand prix Mira Trailović, at the 45th Bitef Festival.

“The dynamics of this tragic story of one character caught between his personal problems and the cruel vortex of history are also built on the testimony of fairly recent events and the distressing events that took place in Sarajevo in the early 1990s.” (DANAS)

“Where politics fail, theatre succeeds. (…) Using the power of the text, director Liješević makes his contribution towards finding the answers for the intimate questions of the time.” (RTS)

The production has been performed in Sarajevo on a number of occasions but also in Vienna, Zagreb, Ljubljana and Montenegro (Cetinje, Tivat, Podgorica), in Rijeka (where it won five awards: for the best performance, directing, dramaturgy and two acting awards), in Kopar, Cluj, Banja Luka (where it won awards for the best acting and the best performance), in Mladenovac, Vranje, Sombor.

A FLEA IN HER EAR

Georges Feydeau

A FLEA IN HER EAR

Directed by Ljubiša Ristić

 

Monsieur Chandebise is a director of a respectable international insurance society. Madame Chandebise, however, believes that his impotence is a result of infidelity and is setting a trap for him: a bogus love letter from a mysterious woman and an invitation for a rendezvous at the Coq d’Or Hotel where Madame Chandebise intends to go herself with the intention of catching her husband in flagrante delicto. In order for her husband not to recognise her handwriting she asks her best friend – Madam Homenides – to write the letter. However, Monsieur Chandebise decides that the mysterious woman has probably sent the letter to him by mistake and that it was probably meant for his young and handsome associate Tournel and proceeds to send Tournel in his stead to the secret rendezvous. Tournel agrees and leaves for the hotel, quite unaware that the person waiting for him there will be none other than Madame Chandebise whom he loves passionately. Through carelessness, the letter ends up in the hands of the pathologically jealous Señor Homenides who, recognising his wife’s handwriting, rushes off to the same hotel with a gun in his hand. Hearing of this, Chandebise decides he too must go to the hotel in all haste in order to save Tournel….

A Flea in Her Ear is probably the most famous vaudeville in the history of theatre and is certainly the most famous work by Georges Feydeau, the king of the genre. It has been part of the Yugoslav Drama Theatre repertoire for the last forty years and has had nearly two thousand performances. Nikola Simić who leads the cast of actors, who have breathed life into this piece and kept it going all these years, has appeared in every single performance since the beginning in his double, inimitable performance of a lifetime.

BORN IN YU

Movement and Choreography: Sonja Vukićević, Team of Dramaturgs: Milena Bogavac, Maja Pelević, Filip Vujošević, Božo Koprivica and Miloš Krečković, Set Designer:Dragutin Broz, Costume Designers: Maja Mirković and Biljana Tegeltija, Composer:Vladimir Pejković, Pianist: Stanislava Jeftić, Lightning Designer: Svetislav Calić,

How would you feel if the country where you were born, grew up in and lived in for years ceased to exist?

This cruel, gentle, entertaining, sad, painful and soothing production talks about the ideals which never materialised and memories we cannot bring ourselves to forget. It speaks about genuine beliefs and manipulation, about hate and love, and was created from personal testimonies of its actors: Branka Petrić, Predrag Ejdus, MirjanaKaranović, Anita Mančić, Slobodan Beštić, Goran Jevtić, Radovan Vujović, Milena Vasić, Marko Baćović and Anđelika Simić.

“Essentially, the real hero of this production are our memories and experiences accompanied by a lot of emotions, a touch of melancholy and quite a lot of nostalgia for a country that is no more….” (BLIC)

“One has to be aware of the artistic importance that such a journey of discovery has in our theatrical traditions but also the importance that such an emotional and psychological examination of Yugoslav identity has for us as individuals. (NIN)

“An important and courageous production.” (VREME)

Born in YU has won two Sterijino Pozorje Awards (Branka Petrić, Anita Mančić) as well as the prize awarded by the daily newspaper Dnevnik (Radovan Vujović). It was performed at festivals in Tivat, Maribor and Brčko and went on tour to Pančevo, Zagreb and Ljubljana.

DON KRSTO

Vida Ognjenović

DON KRSTO

Directed by Vida Ognjenović

 

Set Designer: Juraj Fabry, Costume Designer: Ljiljana Dragović, Composer: Zoran Erić,Dramaturge: Božo Koprivica, Movement: Ferid Karajica, Editor: Radovan Knežević,Lightning Designer: Svetislav Calić, Sound Designer: Dušan Radovanović,

“In Don Krsto we once again see Vida Ognjenović as a skilful playwright whose work  borders on comedy, following the tradition established in her earlier works such asMy Name is MitarHow to Make the Ruler LaughKanjoš Macedonović …“ (POLITIKA)

“Don Krsto Ivanović, son of a nobleman, church canon and teacher, was born in Budva in the first half of 17th century. At the age of 25 he leaves for Italy and, while building a career of a successful scientist, he writes poetry and becomes a renowned author of opera librettos. Using the historical image of a great intellectual of the time, Vida Ognjenović weaves a timeless tale typical of any thinking man, a man condemned to duality, eternal dilemmas and one who is constantly obliged to take sides.“ (NOVOSTI)

“In Don Krsto, Vida Ognjenović uses the slow pace of the epic narrative to tell a melodramatically exciting story of a complex personality which sublimates a number of universally significant problems – love, passion, morals, faith and national identity, all of them brought together in Don Krsto’s anthropological search for the essence of life.” (POLITIKA)

Don Krsto premiered at the Theatre City Budva festival.

Igor Đorđević won the award for best actor in a leading role and Đurđija Cvetić won the award for best actress in a supporting role at the 1st Montenegro Theatre Festival in Podgorica. Actor Ivan Bosiljčić was awarded the Zoranov Brk award at the Dani Zorana Radmilovića festival. For his portrayal of Don Krsto Vojin Ćetković won the Miloš Žutić award which is awarded by the Drama Artists Association of Serbia.
