This theater group aims to open cultural spaces for other members, exchange artists and authors, as well as produce joint projects with a special emphasis on young directors and contemporary dramaturgy.

This way, the National Theater in Nis as the only representative of the Serbian theater in this association, opens new cultural spaces, develops international cooperation and thus improves its artistic capacities.
