In a nightmare of the pre-death night, the great actress, Žanka Stokić, evokes her painstaking and famous artistic and dramatic personal life. Three actors, two of them playing several characters (among which is the character of B. Nušić as well), in the play of Miodrag Ilić illuminate an entire traumatic historical epoch, in order to put in the heart of the issue the question of a moral guilt of artists, as every government wants to use them for its own goals. The piece of work is of humorous, but also upsetting and tragic plot.
The project “Žanka” is the homage to the great actress and by its premiere we are celebrating 130 years of birth and 70 years of death of Žanka Stokić.
