Theatre Laboratory Plavo Pozorište
Theatre Laboratory Plavo pozoriste invites professional and semi-professional actors and directors to spend two weeks to work with us. Two Open Weeks of Plavo pozoriste is an opportunity to meet with our work through a series of events that include: workshops, meetings, performances, video presentations.
During Two Open Weeks our aim is to show participants our vision of theatre as a place of self-discovery, of communication, and as an open-minded space where some important things about the world that surrounds us can be said. The center of our attention is man as a human being—even the actor is a man, first as a human being, and afterwards an actor. Theatre is a place of human connection with life—not with life’s imitation.
