„Eqiunox“ on the cliffs of the Island of Lokrum

Date created: 15.07.2015.

Ivo Vojnović's awarded “Equinox“, directed by Joško Juvančić and performed by the Festival's Drama Ensemble, the third consecutive year of renewal, returns to the Lokrum rocks. It will be performed 16, 17, 18 and 19 of July at 9:30 pm within drama program of 66th Dubrovnik Summer Festival.

Vojnović’s “Equinox“ directed by Joško Juvančić and performed by the Festival’s Drama Ensemble premiered in 2004 and achieved great success by winning four Croatian Theatre Awards. After four years of absence from the Festival’s repertoire, “Equinox” was renewed in 2013 with great interest and sold out tickets.


Equinox“  is a story about the suffering of mothers and wives of seamen, about leaving the  hearth of home in search of happiness and fortune. It takes place on a stormy night, when the storm sets into the souls of the people, forcing them to reveal deeply hidden painful secrets.  With the Dubrovnik Summer Festival’s selected set of actors, spectacular scenography on the southern cliffs of the island of Lokrum, and many awards, Joško Juvančić’s “Equinox” represents the highlight of Dubrovnik’s site-specific theater, as well as being an emblematic play of the Festival, for which the audience’s interest remains high. Set design is credited to Marin Gozze, light design to Deni Šesnić and costume design to Ingrid Begović. Frano Držić is played by Kruno Šarić, Niko Marinović by Maro Martinović, Ivo Ledinić by Nikša Kušelj, Jele by Doris Šarić-Kukuljica, Anica is played by Nika BurđelezPavo by Frano Mašković and Blind Vlaho by Branimir Vidić.
