of texts by modern authors, written for performance in theatre for children and youth

У питању је победнички текст и текстови који су изабрани у ужи избор на првом конкурсу у организацији регионалне платформе Од малих ног(у) и Градског казалишта Жар птица из Загреба.

These are the winning text and texts that were shortlisted at the first competition organized by the regional platform “Od malih nog(u)” and City theatre “Žar ptica” from Zagreb.

Beside the winning text at this-year’s competition, titled THE PLACE LOST THINGS GO TO (orig. Mesto gde odlaze izgubljene stvari) by Ana Ivanović (Serbia)

we will present to you the shortlisted texts:

KINGDOM OF THE BLUE WHALE (orig. Kraljevstvo sinjega kita), Jaka Andrej Vojevec (Slovenia)

PERSON FROM THE FUTURE (orig. Osoba iz budućnosti), Ivan Grčić (Croatia)

PANDORA’S BOX (orig. Pandorina skrinjica), Kim Komljanec (Slovenia)

JOURNEY TO THE LAND OF SHAME (orig. Putovanje u zemlju srama), Dora Golub (Croatia)

LISTS FOR LIVING (orig. Seznami za življenje), Jaka Smerkolj Simoneti (Slovenia)

WITH TIME, UNDERSTAND ME (orig. Shvati me vremenom), Teodora Kipa (Montenegro)

ALL THINGS OF ONE SOUL (orig. Sve stvari jedne duše), Sara Lustig (Croatia)

A total of 70 texts from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia were received in response to the open call. The texts presented a variety in approach, style, genre, as well their target audience. We should point out that a large majority of the received, as well as selected texts is dedicated to young i.e., teenage audience, and they deal with current social issues and problems young people face nowadays. Besides this, the texts were also very various from the aspect of author’s poetics and form, which posed a great challenge in deciding the winning text. The winning text and the seven shortlisted ones at the first open call of the platform “Od malih nog(u)” offer a wide spectre of topics, artistic expression and author’s poetics that, we hope, will find their place on theatre stages.
