WINNERS OF THE FOURTH JUVENTAFEST HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!
The last day of the Juventafest ended, traditionally, with the Award Ceremony honouring the best performances of this years edition.
Jury members Sava Anđelković (pedagogue and theatrologist), Jasna Žalica (actress and professor) and Amila Terzimehić (actress) announced the award winners pointing out that because of the very high quality they had a problem deciding on the winner so they decided to award one Spacial Mention.
Special Mention was awarded to the “performance characterized by great precision, reaching audience in the intelligent way, performed by incredibly skillful dancers” – N.A.G. by Dance Forum from Celje (Slovenia), directed by Gea Erjavec and Aja Zupanec.
Special Recognition of the Jury was awarded to UPSIDEDOWN! Reverse Side of the Earth by Theatre Studio “Mueli” from Tula, directed by u Liudmila Katsero for “high discipline and dedication showed on the scene, but also behind it, and imagination and charm of the ensemble.”
The Main Jury Prize of the fourth Juventafest was awarded to the ZOO! inspired by “We Children from the Bahnhof Zoo”, by Christiane F., performed by Drama Studio Dada of Theatre troupe Pinklec from Čakovec, directed by Davora Dokleje. Jury decided to award them for “great balance between texts, original story by German author and modern experience of the members of drama studio who showed great skill in they emotional performance of the play that unpretentiously tackles the problems of growing up and maturing.”
At the end of the Award Ceremony, Jasna Diklić, Director of the Festival, closed the fourth Juventafest reminding the participants that they are all the winners just because of the fact that they managed to do their plays in the first place and then to be selected for the Festival. She announced the fifth Festival, that will be held at the same time next year.
