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.

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.
