The Opening of the 45th Festival of Monodrama and Mime

The 45th Festival of Monodrama and Mime started today! During her welcome speech, Biljana Djurovic explained that this year’s festival is non-competitive. The audience had to adhere to strict precautionary measures to attend the first play of this festival this year. “Interplays 0-24” performed by Zijah Sokolovic, is a funny and emotional confession that asks many questions, comments on the personal relationship between spouses, reminisces about several special marital situations and comments on our value system and immediate surroundings.

With symbolic sound effects and almost child-like ridicule of illogicalities, the fragments of our most hidden intimacy line up next to each other, while, on the other hand, a touch of humorous vulgarity gives the story a human tone. Per his request, the audience saw off Zijah after his sentence “It’s my time” with the sentence “It’s late now”.

Tomorrow, on the second Festival day, promotion of the book Anthology of biographic monodrama is on the agenda. Organized by Radomir Putnik, you can watch the event on our official YouTube channel.
