Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky

Notes from the Underground

Directed by Ana Đorđević

Dramatisation: Ana Đorđević, Set Designer: Vesna Štrbac, Costume Designer: Lana Cvijanović, Sound Designer: Vladimir Živković, Speech: Ljiljana Mrkić Popović, Lightning Designer: Svetislav Calić,

After her work on The Timetable of Andreas Sam, based on prose writings by Danilo Kiš, and The Kraut Girl by Laza Lazarević, Ana Đorđević decided to tackle another important work of literature. With the help of her assistants and an inspired cast which this time included actors such as Srđan Timarov, Marko Baćović and Marinko Madžgalj, Đorđević has managed to bring to the stage the irrational beauty of a Dostoyevsky classic. It is a tale of kindness and selfishness, loneliness and envy, self-pity and self-deception, of a little man who desires to be accepted by others and his defeat in the face of cruelty which, at the same time, surrounds and pervades him.

“This production is yet another example of the special position Ana Đorđević has in our theatre of today (…). Based on texts from classical literature which ponder universal and intimate topics, she creates a traditional theatrical expression whose central axis is that of text vs. acting.” (NIN)

Notes from the Underground was performed at the Borini Pozorisni Dani theatre festival in Vranje.

Premiere: 11 May 2010
