Event: Theatre play ‘Resistance’
Place: Serbian National Theatre
Time: 15th December, at 8:30pm
The Canadian playwright Lee MacDougall’s play „Resistance“ tells the story of three young G8 protestors who, by accident, take a high-powered executive from a Pharmaceutical conglomerate hostage. Owen, Jennie and Gerry have been travelling around the globe, squatting where they can, and protesting the G8 summits wherever they happen. One morning, Jennie picks up a stranger in a suit, Mr. Sullivan, who turns out to be much more powerful, and subsequently dangerous than any of them suspects. When Mr. Sullivan’s assistant Beth arrives to help negotiate his release, the stakes increase, as secrets are revealed, loyalties are tested, and the truth changes the lives of everyone involved. Darkly humorous and political, Resistance is a story of young people learning about the world, and about themselves.
Event: Concert by Dalmatian a capella male choir Cambi
Time: 16th December, at 8:00pm
Cambi is one of the most renowned and popular a capella male choirs in Croatia. It was founded in 1986, in a small town of Kastel Kambelovac, near Split, Croatia, and it derives its name from the eponymous aristocratic family from Split who was the biggest land owner in Dalmatia. The choir performs the traditional Dalmatian songs, as well as remakes of the most popular songs by contemporary singers like Zdravko Colic, Neno Belan and Massimo Savic.
