GUEST PERFORMANCES FROM ZAGREB AND LJUBLJANA AT YDT

After well received guest performances of Hamlet at the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb and the Slovene National Theatre in Ljubljana, Yugoslav Drama Theatre will open its doors to two guest performances from these two theatres.  The performance of Three Winters by the Croatian National Theatre is scheduled for 29th May and Faust by the Slovene National Theatre for 16th June.

Three Winters by Tena Štivčić was directed by Ivica Buljan. This play was first produced by the Royal National Theatre in London and was directed by one of the most prominent English theatre directors Howard Davies, recipient of three Olivier awards – the most prestigious theatre award in Britain.  Besides Croatia, Three Winters has also seen productions in Estonia, Germany and Slovenia.

The Croatian National Theatre production, which we will have an opportunity to see at YDT, has received high praise in Croatia.  The cast includes Ksenija Marinković, Alma Prica, Bojan Navojec, Nina Violić, Jadranka Đokić, Dragan Despot, Luca Anić, Barbara Vicković, Mislav Čavajda, Franjo Kuhar, Siniša Popović, Mada Peršić, Silvio Vovk and Slavko Juraga.

This artistic exchange with the Croatian National Theatre was made possible with the support of the Assembly of the City of Belgrade.

The guest performance from the Slovene National Theatre is that of Faust by Goethe, directed by Tomaž Pandur. This is the third time Tomaž Pandur has directed this celebrated play by Goethe.  He first directed Faust in 1990 at the Slovene National Theatre in Maribor. The second time was at Centro Dramático Nacional in Madrid in 2014 and the third at the Slovene National Theatre in Ljubljana in 2015. Unfortunately, this was to be the last direction by this great director from Slovenia before his death in April, 2016.   The cast includes Igor Samobor (CEO of Slovene National Theatre), Branko Šturbej, Barbara Cerar/Maša Derganc, Polona Juh, Branko Jordan, Uroš Fürst, Robert Korošec, Filip Samobor, Žan Perko and Matic Lukšič who have already given guest performances in Mexico, Columbia, Czech Republic, Macedonia, South Korea and Romania.

HAMLET WINS AN AWARD IN RIJEKA

The expert jury of the International Small Scenes Theatre Festival in Rijeka composed of Željka Turčinović, dramaturgue (Zagreb), Branko Cvejić, actor (Beograd) and Elvis Bošnjak, actor and playwright (Split) gave the Dorian Sokolić Award for best set design to Numen Group and Ivana Jonke for their design in the Yugoslav Drama Theatre production of Hamlet by William Shakespeare, directed by Aleksandar Popovski.  The jury justified its decision with these words: At times exuberant and yet self involved set design by Numen Group and Ivana Jonke is not a mere decorative element in the play but an active participant that opens up new possibilities for direction by creating both visible and invisible aspects of this production.

YDT PRODUCTIONS ON RTS YOUTUBE CHANNEL

To mark this year’s World Theatre Day on 27th March, the Arts & Culture department of the Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) has started uploading to the internet video recordings of theatre productions from their archives.  These recordings can be found on the official You Tube channel of the Arts & Culture department in the playlist entitled POZORIŠNE PREDSTAVE I TV TEATAR.

The creative link between the theatre and television was forged at the very inception of TV Belgrade in 1958.

There is a document proving that the first live broadcast of a theatre production took place on 28th December, 1958.  It was an Atelje 212 theatre production of Ljubovnaja zavist čerez jedne cipele (Jealous because of a Shoe) by Joakim Vujić, adapted for the stage and directed by Vladimir Petrić.  Soon after, in 1959, a comedy by Dragutin Dobričanin Zajednički stan (Joint Apartment), performed by the Belgrade Comedians, was broadcast live only to be followed by a number of well known theatre productions that TV audiences were able to see in live broadcasts.

Obviously, in those early days of TV Belgrade, there was no possibility of actually taping the productions because video recorders were first used only in 1961.  Later on, video recorders were used for taping theatre performances but due to constant financial difficulties and a small number of available cassettes, these videos were mainly deleted.  Unfortunately, that meant that precious recordings were lost that would have been evidence of theatrical achievements during mid-20th century.

The earliest recordings still in existence date back to 1967.  The Arts & Culture department of RTS has decided to make some of these recordings from their rich archives available to You Tube users and there are more recordings still to come.  The first batch will consist of the earliest existing recordings of productions from Belgrade theatres during 1960s and 70s.

The first three plays that were made available on this You Tube channel were recordings of Yugoslav Drama Theatre productions  of Yegor Bulychov, Our Sons and Dirty Hands.  Since then the list has grown to include recordings of YDT productions but also those from other theatres.

HAMLET RECEIVES STANDING OVATION IN RIJEKA

The Yugoslav Drama Theatre production of Hamlet by William Shakespeare, directed by Aleksandar Popovski, was performed last night at the International Small Scene Theatre Festival in Rijeka.  The ensemble received standing ovation and the audiences at the Croatian National Theatre in Rijeka brought actor Nebojša Glogovac back on stage for a number of curtain calls.  The audience’s appreciation was evident in the rating that was given to the whole production – 4.56.  The round table discussion afterwards was held in a space that proved to be too small to receive all those who wanted to talk to the actors.

After a brief but successful tour of Austria and Croatia, ovations at Volkstheater in Vienna where Hamlet was performed on Saturday, 29th April and in Rijeka last night, the actors return to Belrade.  Performances of Hamlet at YDT are scheduled for 11th, 15th, 16th and 19th May.  The performance on 15th May will have English subtitles.

AWARD FOR UNDER THE MILLSTONE

At the second edition of Theatre Spring festival in Šabac, the jury consisting of journalists Borka Golubović Trebješanin (Politika), Tanja Nježić (Blic) and Vukica Strugar (Večernje novosti) was unanimous in awarding the “Zalog za Budućnost” journalists award to Jelena Petrović for her portrayal of Stana in Under the Millstone by Dragoslav Nenadić, directed by Egon Savin.

The statement issued by the jury said – In her portrayal of Stana in the Yugoslav Drama Production of ‘Under the Millstone’, Jelena Petrović has used her rich dramatic potential to give a subtle and yet forceful performance, thus adding another layer to the play where we see examined the burden of misery that deforms a human being on the one hand, and on the other the redeeming power of love and hope.

This is yet an0ther outstanding performance by this young actress and yet another confirmation of her acting abilities and a promise of her future contribution to the art of theatre.
