Ugly, Dirty and Bad

Stage play, supporting role Dora 2021

An Italian dark comedy, based on elements of neorealism, premiered in 1976. In the same year, the movie won the award for best director at the Cannes Film Festival."Ugly, Dirty and Bad" is a story about people from the margins, a huge family that lives in a crowded shack and unhygienic settlement on the outskirts of Rome. The main character, the one-eyed Giacinto, is also the head of a family composed of four generations, which supports itself through theft and prostitution.

Material poverty is an introduction to emotional, moral misery that reduces people to mere existence and instincts.

Liliom (The Lily)

Stage play, supporting role 2021

First performed at the Belgrade Drama Theater in October 1952 under the title "Legend of the Lily" and directed by Predrag Dinulović, this play continues Ferenc Molnar's heritage as one of the most frequently set pieces throughout Hungary.

Molnar's sentimental tragicomedy is an example of the so-called trivial, boulevard drama. Its heroes are people who live on the sidelines of life. It is a poetic work about love. A man and a woman from the margins are caught in a whirlwind of unarticulated love, which is resisted by common sense and the miles in which they are trapped.

"It is touching, self-destructive and it is not possible in this time or in this life."

Brecht composed some musical sequences himself for the play and Belgrade still mentions the cult play by Eduard Miller, made more than thirty years ago.

Who Still Eats Bread and Soup

Stage play, lead role 2016

The play "Who Still Eats Bread and Soup" examines the modern family at the very moment of a well-known phenomenon - the exhausting debates that come to light after the death of parents. The formal and legal division of property in this play leads to a final separation and dissolution within the family, so there is no longer any salvation left. This piece talks about three generations of women in one family, and it also problematizes the relationship between mother and daughter, as well as all expectations from that relation.
