A PROFITABLE POSITION – A GREAT SUCCESS IN MOSCOW

Maly Theatre in Moscow

Our production of A Profitable Position by A.  N. Ostrovsky, directed by Egon Savin, was performed on 12th May as a part of the international “Ostrovsky in the House of Ostrovsky” theatre festival at Maly Theatre in Moscow.  The audience included representatives of the Serbian embassy and a number of ex pat Serbs living in Moscow and they all loved the production which was evident in the round of applause for the whole ensemble that lasted for a number of minutes.  On this occasion, Yugoslav Drama Theatre received the certificate of honour and statue of the Festival.  A round table debate was held that same evening where theatre critics, media representatives and audience members were invited.

The previous day, Friday, 11th May, at the press conference held on the occasion of the opening of the “Ostrovsky in the House of Ostrovsky” festival, there was a great deal of interest in the Yugoslav Drama Theatre production.  On the same day, members of the Yugoslav Drama Theatre delegation were present at a forum at the Museum  dedicated to the great Russian actor Alexander Sumbatov Yuzhin where the well known Russian theatre critic Natalia Vagapova Mikhailovna spoke with great respect and knowledge about the history of our theatre.  Tamara Vučković Manojlović, CEO of Yugoslav Drama Theatre, and dramaturgue Miloš Krečković were present at the forum and answered a number of questions from the audience.

Maly Theatre is one of the oldest theatres in Russia and it first opened its doors back in 1824.  Since its inception, it has played an important role in the development of Russia’s national culture.  This theatre has been the venue for performing works by a number of Russian authors but the author most connected to it is Alexander Nikolayevich Ostrovsky whose statue stands in front of the theatre. In 1993 a festival was created under the title of “Ostrovsky in the H0use of Ostrovsky”. Maly Theatre has been a member of Union of the Theatres of Europe since 2010 (YDT became a member in 2006).

Our guest performance in Moscow had the support of the Belgrade City Council.

NUŠIĆ’S DAYS FESTIVAL AWARDS

Actor Boris Isaković wins the Milosav–Buca Mirković best actor award at the 35th edition of  Nušić’s Days theatre festival in Smederevo for his performance in the Yugoslav Drama Theatre production of Under the Millstone.

The jury composed of Goran Jevtić (actor, president of the jury), Snežana Trišić (theatre director) and Tanja Šljivar (playwright) were unanimous in their decision which they justified by saying that: “Extraordinary acting skill, precision, well measured and rich emotional range, the creation of two distinct characters in Under the Millstone by Dragoslav Nenadić, directed by Egon Savin and produced by Yugoslav Drama Theatre, confirm Boris Isaković as one of the best Serbian actors.  Being the personification of the moral dilemma of the whole play of ‘whether to be hungry but preserve one’s integrity or bow to the general degradation of a society in order to protect one’s existence’, Boris Isaković commands our attention with his talent, reflection, width and depth of emotions that trigger empathy and ask the audience to question what a human being is and what it could be.  For the sheer excellence of his performance, and by the decision of the jury, Boris Isaković is declared the recipient of Milosav–Buca Mirković best actor award.”

Men of Wax is a dramatic triptych composed of three independent and stylistically different parts. The main link between them is Victor, a playwright and script writer, a former rock guitarist and a pop-rock star of a country that once existed.  The cast includes: Goran Grgić, Ksenija Marinković,  Alma Prica, Bojan Navojec, Ana Begić, Milan Pleština, Ivan Jončić, Slavko Juraga, Luka Dragić, Siniša Popović, Ivan Glowatzky, Silvio Vovk, Kristijan Potočki, Alen Šalinović, Jelena Perčin, Iva Mihalić, Damir Markovina, Vanja Matujec, Katija Zubčić, Barbara Vicković,  Olga Pakalović, Ivana Boban and Dora Lipovčan.

After completing his degree in 1981, he emigrated to West Germany.  In Cologne he became a student of theatre studies and history of art.  The first play he directed in Zagreb was back in 1990 at Zagreb Youth Theatre and it became one of many plays he has directed over the years for theatres in Croatia’s capital.  Besides Germany and Croatia, he has also directed productions in Austria (Vienna) and in Slovenia (Celje, Maribor, Nova Gorica, Piran) but mainly at the Slovene National Theatre in Ljubljana.  At Zagreb Youth Theatre Kica also directed Locusts by Biljana Srbljanović.  He has received numerous awards for his work.

The set for Men of Wax was designed by Studio NUMEN and Ivana Jonke who have also done set design for YDT productions of Metamorphoses, Hamlet and Einstein’s Dreams.
