Raško and Nevena, a performance that took the inspiration from Romeo and Juliet, spoke about the joy, love and youth problems in Smederevo. The show was generational and inclusive and it actors were punks, cool kids, rockers and Rom - breaker.

The actors played themselves, trying to share that moment of self-awareness through theatrical act with the audience.

THE FORT

The Fort talks about the collision of myth and history, the aspirations of the rulers who are confronted with the fears and hopes of the people, an attempt to elevate the urban from rural, to create state of the country. This struggle is neither easy nor clear, and it indicates some doubt that Serbian society is shaken to this day.
