ELECTRA BY KIŠ, WITH NADA ŠARGIN IN THE TITLE ROLE, PREMIERES ON THE “RAŠA PLAOVIĆ” STAGE
Production of Electra, written by Danilo Kiš and stage directed by Iva Milošević, premiered on the “Raša Plaović” Stage on 25th December.
Nada Šargin interpreted the title role in this always-appealing play about human nature’s dark side, while Marko Janketić interpreted Orestes and Dušanka Glid Stojanović interpreted Clytemnestra.
The cast: Pavle Jerinić (Pylades), Aleksandar Đurica (A Mason), Branko Jerinić (Strophius), Darko Tomović (Aegisthus), students of FDA and AA, Mina Nikolić, Bojana Đurašković, Joakim Tasić, Stefan Radonjić (Chorus) and Vladimir Pejković (A Musician).
Kiš wrote his version of this famous tragedy by Euripides in 1968, while adapting the Serbian translation of the play.
Irrational, impulsive forces in a man intrigued both Euripides and, particularly, Kiš; therefore, the writers examined those forces.
The story about a sister and a brother who want to take a revenge on their mother for killing their father, surpasses the classical Greek tragedy framework in this production, thus mirroring the today’s brutal world, and the audience awarded the cast with a long and cordial applause.
The play reveals that there can be nothingness at the end of one’s path and that destiny sometimes does not offer the way out, the way to healing and forgiveness.
The creative team: Gorčin Stojanović (set designer), Boris Čakširan (costume designer), Vladimir Pejković (composer) and Ljiljana Mrkić Popović (stage speech).
The team of associates: Ivana Nenadović (executive producer), Nemanja Konstantinović (organiser), Miloš Obrenović (stage manager), Jelena Halupa (prompter) and students, Miljana Ćosić (assistant stage director) and Milica Mladenović (organiser in training).
