Dijana Milosevic, Serbia: Performing Truth in the Face of Denial| 6mins
Director: Cynthia Cohen and Allison Lund | Producer: Cynthia Cohen and Allison Lund
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: United States
Dijana MiloÅ¡eviÄ‡, director of Dah Theatre, Serbia describes the response of Dah to civil war in the former Yugoslavia, and its role in supporting Serbian citizens to acknowledge the violence being committed in their names. The purpose of theatre, she says, is not to tell people what to do or what to think, but, even in the context of war, to create spaces that invite self-transformation. Scenes of powerful performances, on the stage and in the street, accompany her words. Theatre, she says paradoxically, is a â€œweapon for peace.â€ It can help us transform feelings of guilt into actions of responsibility.
