Young actors spoke about personal and generational problems

The second day of the seventh International festival of high school theatre Juventafest was marked by the plays from Bosnia and Herzegovina. On the stage of the Center for Culture and Youth in Municipality Center Sarajevo, OU Jelićeva, members of the Acting School – Center for Culture Zavidovići introduced themselves to the audience last night with the performance of “Iphigenia”, directed by Alma Osmanović and Sanela Ahmić.

Their peers from the Second Gymnasium Sarajevo performed the play „Things I Want to Say but Never Will“ in the Sarajevo Youth Theatre, which was directed by Ida Avdibegović.

The play „Iphigenia“  deals with the older generation that sacrifices young people for the work of their own interests. They say that they are aware that the political system is treating them as objects, but they are ready to become the protagonists of their future. Another play from Bosnia and Herzegovina „Things I Want to Say but Never Will“ was seen on the stage last night,  a play where young actors  dominate on the stage and speak honestly about personal and generational issues.

This year’s festival, which was officially opened on Thursday, September 5 will last to Monday, September 9, and the audience will have the opportunity to watch three more plays:  “Rails” by Drama Studio ĆOŠE from Obrenovac (Serbia) which is in the programme at the Youth Theatre tonight at 8pm, “Is the case accidental?” by Drama Studio – Tirena theatre  from Zagreb (Croatia) which will be performed on Sunday at 8pm also at the Youth Theatre, and the last play of this year’s Juventafest  which will be performed a day later at 7 pm.

The organizers of the 7th Juventafest remind that the entrance to all the plays is free.
