Serbian Playwright, producer, and festival director Jelena Kajgo (BITEF, Belgrade International Theatre Festival) joins director Ian Morgan (Associate Artistic Director, The New Group) to discuss contemporary Serbian theatre in a global context. Kajgo's play Realists maps the shock waves of American-style capitalism and the global financial crisis 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The production, which is one of the first Serbian plays to be produced in New York by Americans, will receive its world premiere at HERE Arts Center under Ian Morgan's direction.
Join us for an evening featuring an excerpted reading from the play and a panel discussion featuring Jelena Kajgo, Ian Morgan,
and Belgrade-born Ivan Talijancic
