A WORD FROM THE DIRECTOR
The Miracle of Saint George is a fantastic tragicomedy by Macedonian writer Rusomir Bogdanovski, which in a witty, absurd and fun way deals with themes common for all peoples of the Balkans: constant wars, brutal assassinations of rulers, abuse of religion and change of religion.
This grotesque play takes place in an unnamed kingdom (perhaps somewhere in the Balkans), where an eternal struggle for power is being waged, and the people are being held in complete obedience through abuse and manipulation of faith. But what happens when the angels, led by the archangel Michael, offer the ruler to renounce the old pagan beliefs and accept a new religion (which is unusually reminiscent of the Christian one). Can an entire kingdom change faith overnight? What is the price of such a change?
Three Balkan nations: Bulgarians, Romanians and Serbs will present themselves through their artists in this unique theatrical experience full of rhythm, humor
and love. Yes, love, which still remains hovering over all characters and situations as the
only remaining weapon of good in the fight against stupidity, darkness and evil.
