41st INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF MONODRAMA AND MIME WILL BE HELD FROM JUNE THE 30th TO JULY THE 3rd OF 2016.

THE SECOND DAY OF THE FESTIVAL

On the second day of the festival the audience was addressed by Anđela Jovanović who announced the program and the contestants. The first show of the second day was ‘Homebody/Kabul’ starring Dušanka Stojanović Glid. It is a type of monologue, stripped of unnecessary movement or dramatic changes. The next performer was Gera Sandler from Israel in the play ‘Finally, the end! the audience counted down the moments till death with him. The third show was ‘Soul of a chair’ by artist Yuri Kostanyan from Armenia, a mime act about the struggle and symbiosis of man and chair, that is, the correlation of people and authorities personified as the throne. The last show that took place on the second festival day was ‘My Prizes’ by Slobodan Beštić, which began half an hour before midnight. It is a story about the turbulent road ahead of us, the no-alternative road called the European Union. It speaks of seeing things as they really are, not how we want them to be. The EU anthem is played at the end, the volume gradually increasing, until it drowns out even the loudest protests. The audience shouted ‘bravo’ at Slobodan Beštić. Honorary awards were handed out by the President of the festival Council, Predrag Miletić.
