The play “No Man’s Land” performed by the Macedonian National Theater that will close the 57th edition of the Ohrid Summer Festival will be played in the area of the former military barracks in Ohrid, instead of in the outskirts of the church of St. Sophia.
The scene is authentic with the story in the play because the theme is war. The space itself with the former barracks that served the army will give additional symbolism to the events.
“No man’s land” is a picture of the absurdity of the Balkan peoples and their irrational interactions both in peacetime and in war. The dramatic situation-war in which this black comedy is developing is a metaphor of our permanent spiritual, but also actual state of “war and hatred” to “brotherly” neighboring nations, but also internally among people.
The director of the National Institution “Ohrid Summer” Suzana Vrencovska believes that the festival should be opened to new scenes because the city itself offers it.
– This is a great opportunity to open the Ohrid Summer Festival as a scene. Ohrid is a city where virtually every corner, every corner can turn into a scene, says Vrencovska.
The closing ceremony of this biggest musical-stage event in Macedonia and the region will take place on August 20th.
