At today’s press conference, General Manager of the National Theater in Nis, Spasoje Z. Milovanovic, announced to numerous journalists a new 2019/20 theater season that carries the message “Myth and bribe”, as well as all the premiering titles by the end of the year.
The premiere of the play “The Government and Its Opposition”, by Nebojsa Romcevic, directed by Egon Savin, which will be performed on Saturday, October 5, 2019 was also announced at the press conference
Nis’s theater audience will have the opportunity to see re runs of these shows on October 6 and 25, 2019.
In addition to directing, Egon Savin also signs the selection of music, with the author’s team consisting of Marija Kalabic – production design and Biljana Krstic – costume design.
The play stars: Aleksandar Mihailovic, Dejan Cicmilovic, Aleksandar Marinkovic, Jasminka Hodzic and Nadja Nedovic Tekinder.
The play “The Government and Its Opposition” arose from the play” PR – Purely Ridiculous”, which is the last part of Romcevic’s theater trilogy which still consists of “Easy Piece” and “Paradox”. While “Easy Piece” deals with the 1990s, “Paradox” with hot October events, “PR” focuses on the political reality of the 21st century, where marketing agencies, by studying public opinion, create image-politicians, the electorate equalizes with the audience, and in reality, as if what the media did not pay attention to did not happen.
That is why in the play “The Government and Its Opposition” one of the biggest problems of the authorities is how to purchase quality and fight “worthy” opposition that will support public opinion. On the other hand, free-minded, thinking, incorruptible intellectuals on the verge of existence, who did not sell themselves because no one even tried to buy them. And what happens when the right price is offered is what bitter comedy “The Government and its Opposition” deals with.
