Elfride Jelinek's Nobel Prize drama, the many award-winning piece of SENKA / EURIDIKA GOVORI, was the first premiere on Madlenianum's stage in the jubilee 20th season.
For this drama, Elfride Jelinek received Nestor's best German drama award in 2016.                                                                                      

The SENKA / EURIDIKA GOVORI show was realized in co-production with the Faculty of Dramatic Arts and with the support of the Austrian Cultural Forum.

A powerful story about a contemporary woman and her constant struggle to keep the spiritual values above the material ones is directed by Ivana Vujić. A dramaturge of the project is Slavenka Milovanović, a scenographer is Kosta Bunuševac, a costume designer is Dušica Knežević, a choreographer is Barbara Milovanov and for the stage speech is PhD Ljiljana Mrkić Popović. “Are we really able to love or these are all lies and personal interest? What sort of love can we establish in today’s world, in which we are copies of the television picture?” – wonders a director, Ivana Vujić, setting this text, for the first time translated in the region.   

SHADOW / EURYDICE SPEAKS directs us to the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. In interpretation of Ivana Vujić the modern Eudydice has several faces, so she is played by the prominant actresses: Danica Maksimović (Eurydice Shadow) and Danica Ristovski (Eurydice Body). Orpheus is played by Kosta Bunuševac.
