World Theatre Day is celebrated annually on the 27th March. This year message of the International Theatre Institute has been written by one of the most significant theatre artists of today, the Polish director Krzysztof Warlikowski.


World Theater Day Message 2015

The true masters of the theater are most easily found far from the stage. And they generally have no interest in theater as a machine for replicating conventions and reproducing clichés. They search out the pulsing source, the living currents that tend to bypass performance halls and the throngs of people bent on copying some world or another. We copy instead of create worlds that are focused or even reliant on debate with an audience, on emotions that swell below the surface. And actually there is nothing that can reveal hidden passions better than the theater.

Most often I turn to prose for guidance.  Day in and day out I find myself thinking about writers who nearly one hundred years ago described prophetically but also restrainedly the decline of the European gods, the twilight that plunged our civilization into a darkness that has yet to be illumined. I am thinking of Franz Kafka, Thomas Mann and Marcel Proust. Today I would also count John Maxwell Coetzee among that group of prophets.

Their common sense of the inevitable end of the world—not of the planet but of the model of human relations—and of social order and upheaval, is poignantly current for us here and now. For us who live after the end of the world. Who live in the face of crimes and conflicts that daily flare in new places faster even than the ubiquitous media can keep up. These fires quickly grow boring and vanish from the press reports, never to return. And we feel helpless, horrified and hemmed in. We are no longer able to build towers, and the walls we stubbornly construct do not protect us from anything—on the contrary, they themselves demand protection and care that consumes a great part of our life energy. We no longer have the strength to try and glimpse what lies beyond the gate, behind the wall. And that’s exactly why theater should exist and where it should seek its strength. To peek inside where looking is forbidden.

“The legend seeks to explain what cannot be explained. Because it is grounded in truth, it must end in the inexplicable”—this is how Kafka described the transformation of the Prometheus legend.  I feel strongly that the same words should describe the theater. And it is that kind of theater, one which is grounded in truth and which finds its end in the inexplicable that I wish for all its workers, those on the stage and those in the audience, and I wish that with all my heart.

Krzysztof Warlikowski

University of Belgrade Centre for Career Development is organising visits to Yugoslav Drama Theatre during March and April. The participants will learn about the history of the theatre and the way it operates as an institution. They will also be given an opportunity to meet and talk to people who work at the theatre and find out more about a typical day at work as well as all the particularities related to working at this institution. At the same time, participants will be informed about the knowledge and skills that are required in order to be able to work in a theatre. The visits are organised as a part of “Find out First Hand” programme of the Career Development Centre as an opportunity for students to talk to potential employers and learn about work in different areas thus becoming more competitive on the labour market.

So far the students who took part in this programme have had an opportunity to learn more about working at companies such as Telenor, Banca Intesa, Microsoft, Bel Medic private hospital, TV Fox, Merck Sharpe & Dohme pharmaceutical company, Carlsberg brewery in Čelarevo, Holcim cement factory in Popovac, Coca-Cola Hellenic, Hemofarm in Vršac,  DIN tobacco factory in Niš – part of Philip Morris International in Niš, British American Tobacco,  Ernst&Young,  IBM, McCann Group agency, Tigar factory in Pirot, etc.

Bg praksa

Ever since 2012, Yugoslav Drama Theatre has taken part in the university programme for practical skills development organised by the Belgrade City Council – BG PRAKSA. The aim of the programme is to provide young graduates or soon-to-be graduates with an opportunity to take part in the everyday life of the theatre, in rehearsals or in the artistic department of YDT in order to put the knowledge acquired during their studies into practice and gain some additional practical skills.

On occasions we have also organised tours of our premises where visitors can find out more about what goes on back stage as well as on stage, basic principles of theatre art, the phases through which a production has to go from the beginning to its premiere but also about the history of Yugoslav Drama Theatre and its ensemble.

… I love theatre too

By the end of the last year Yugoslav Drama Theatre together with the Yugoslav Drama Theatre Foundation started a project entitled “…I love theatre too”. The project is financed by the Serbian Ministry of Culture and Information. The aim of the project is to acquaint students of final year of grammar school with the process of rehearsing and performing plays in professional theatre conditions and at a very high artistic level.

During their visits to YDT, students were given an opportunity to find out more about the functioning of a big theatre, they were given a guided tour, received complimentary tickets to see one of the plays on YDT repertoire and also an opportunity to talk to members of the cast and crew about the creative process.
