2ND MEETING OF YOUNG ARTISTS OF SOUTHEAST EUROPE - performances > (18/09/2018)


 
At the “2nd Meeting of Young Artists of Southeast Europe”, organized by the National Theatre of Northern Greece, as part of the International Network of Ancient Drama, the concept of the comic element, its nature, its characteristics, its prerequisites for its existence in comedy, in satyr drama even in tragedy will be analysed.
 
 
Focusing on Aristophanes −an expert in the creation of comic situations− all the comic techniques will be used: the comic of the situation, the comic of the characters, the comic of the text and the comic of the stage techniques.
 
The aim of the meeting is to link the past with the present and the future, through a series of actions, such as workshops, presentations, masterclasses, discussions and lectures in which young people from southeast Europe participate.
 
During the “2nd Meeting of Young Artists of Southeast Europe”,  a series of events (actions, presentations, discussions and lectures) will take place with free admission to the public.

PERFORMANCES


Saturday 22/09
21:00 | Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies
Italy | An “Anagoor Company” performance
“Socrates, the Survivor / Just like leaves”
Direction: Simone Derai
A performance based on the novel “Il Sopravvissuto” by Antonio Scurati and inspired by the work of Plato, Cees Nooteboom and Georges I. Gurdjieff.
 
Director’s Note
In an era such as ours, characterised by whirlwind changes, the question of education seems to have become both a marginal issue and an insurmountable mountain, constantly and insufficiently bypassed by partial school reforms which understate the role of teachers and pupils as well as the very process of knowledge.
With “Socrates, the Survivor”, Anagoor enters a classroom in a school just like many others. It does so by following the pages of the novel “Il sopravvissuto” by Antonio Scurati, assuming the point of view of those whose place is before a group of youngsters, charged with their education. This is not a theatrical adaptation of the novel: some of the book’s most emblematic pages intertwine with other stories, other words, other dimensions of time: in this case the final moments of Socrates’ life, surrounded by his disciples before being sentenced to death.
Simone Derai
 
Short presentation
School and the forming of conscience are presented through philosophy and tragedy. Between the hours preceding the execution of Socrates by order of the city and the moment in which the student Vitaliano Caccia shoots dead the entire matriculation board, sparing only the philosophy teacher, a battle is waged against western thinking.

“Antigone”
Direction: Velimir Blanic
Based on Sophocles’ “Antigone”
 
Short Description
The “Antigone” project was created as a final exam of students of the third year at the Academy of Arts in Banja Luka in the class of the professor Velimir Blanic. Since the topic of the third year is the issue of genre, we decided to present Antigone’s text in the form of an experiment, based on the motives of the ancient tragedy, broken by dancing, fighting and stylized stage movement. The play focuses on stage action and uses only a few sentences.

Choreography: Ana Tešić
Students / Actors: Marko Radojević (Creon, Polynices), Petar Miljuš / Marko Nedeljković (Creon, Oedipus), Nadežda Kostić (Antigone, Jocasta), Milica Glogovac (Antigone), Bojana Supić (Tiresias, Ismene, Antigone), Aleksandra Plahin (Ismene, Antigone), Miroslav Sinkić (Haemon, Eteocles), Ognjen Todorović / Milan Dimić (Creon, Polynices, Tiresias).

Thursday 27/09
21:00 | Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies
Bosnia and Herzegovina | A performance by the National Theatre of Sarajevo
 “The Phoenician Women” by Euripides
Direction: Ozren Prohic
Adaptation: Lade Kaštelan
 
Short Description
The adaptation of the ancient drama “The Phoenician Women” by Lade Kaštelan deals with topics that are universal and current. The leitmotif of the two brothers who kill each other because of their struggle for power is very common in many stories of different cultures.
In this performance, Phoenician women are like refugees who try to find a better future. This adaptation reveals a feminist view of the myth and, at the same time, focuses on the passive way with which everyone is waiting for the tragic event to occur without doing anything. But a better future will come only if people stop being passive viewers of their own lives.
