This years selection and festival, heid under the motto "Fortune favours the brave", boasts predominantly the young, from a Rusian author Jaroslawa Pulinowitz, to Mia Knežević, and Tanja Šljivar. The young directors Marko Misirača, Ana Đorđević and a Pole Malgorzata Siuda dominate the festival, together with those, such as Mirjana Karanović and Vojislav Brajović, who use their broad stage exsperience in a completely different context, thus giving it a completely new function. The youthful spirit of Pierre Walter Politz, and the creative team of the play "IN agony" is also obvious. These artist have the need, and have found the strenght, as weil as the means, to express themselves in new ways.
I belive that this group of authors, festival participants as well as the organizer, have paved the way for new forms, new themes down in the future.
