The National Theater in Nis expresses its deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the elementary school “Vladislav Ribnikar” and its staff.

The Nis National Theater believes and hopes that this never-before-recorded event in the history of Serbia is a warning to the entire public that it is the last moment to establish a society in which every diversity and otherness, no matter how great, is respected and supported; a society without aggression, insults and disparagement, a society in which there is an ethical and aesthetic thought about valuing good and evil. A society without this kind of thinking will accept evil as a daily routine and will lead to self-destruction.

All of this was said at today’s press conference, which was held regarding both the upcoming premiere of the play “The Seed”, written and directed by Miroljub Riki Nedović, and the celebration of 40 years of his creative work at the National Theater in Niš.

Due to yesterday’s social disaster and permanent individual and collective trauma, the conference was held without any formal character and the joy that the new play itself brings.

The opening of the show “The Seed”, planned for May 5, 2023, has been postponed to May 9, starting at 8:00 p.m., and the first rerun will be held on May 10. Purchased premiere tickets are valid for the new date.

We emphasize that the tickets for the preview, planned for May 4, will be valid for the replay on May 10.

We inform the audience that the guest performance “Until Death Do Us Part”, which was scheduled for Sunday, May 7, has also been cancelled. We will later inform our audience about the new performance date, and purchased tickets will be valid for the new date.

In addition, a refund for the purchased tickets for each of the above performances can be obtained with a fiscal receipt, on weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the National Theater box office.
