A Farce and a Comedy to Start Off the Drama Programme

Date created: 14.07.2014.

Nikola Nalješković’s “Fifth Comedy” is a farcicial representation of the every day life of Renaissance Dubrovnik, which voyeuristically places the audience into the center of a family  conflict and speaks of the Republic’s backface from the perspective of Dubrovnik’s ladies and maids. The performance is a test production directed by Morana Novosel under the mentorship of prof. Matko Sršen, starring Dajana Čuljak, Ivan Magud, Tana Mažuranić, Marija Šegvić and Mia Anočić-Valentić.  Nalješković’s farce is scheduled for Tuesday, 15th July in the Center for Advanced Academic Studies Atrium at 9.30 p.m.  

“Tartuffe”, Moliere’s classical story of an imposter who infiltrates himself into a wealthy family, directed by Krešimir Dolenčić and performed by senior acting students of the Academy of Dramatic Art in Zagreb, is a comedy about the breakdown of a modern day middle class family, which brought Krešimir Dolenčić an award for best direction, while the performing ensemble received a special recongnition for their shared performance and for translating the play into contemporary language at the 38th Fadil Hadžić’s  Days of Satire.

The play is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, 16th July at 9.30 p.m. in the Center for Advanced Academic Studies Atrium.
