Alexander Dukhnovich Theatre, Prešov 

direction:Braňo Mazúch

Ruthenian performing artists from the Alexander Dukhnovich Theatre, Prešov will bring to Nitrian spectators the drama POSSESSED, directed by Braňo Mazúch.  Dostoyevsky’s demons [Besy] are no longer the apocalyptic soldiers of anarchy and death, but the possessed who are pathologically afraid of growing up and suffer from the lack of love. They don’t pay attention to their surroundings, but things, which they desire, destroy them. Live music and passionate acting by the outstanding Ruthenian performing artists intensify the authenticity of the stage-existence of the broken souls.

Andrej Bagar Theatre in Nitra

direction: Rastislav Ballek

The new production from the Andrej Bagar Theatre repertoire is also selected to the main programme of Divadelná Nitra. Festival visitors will be able to see JÁNOŠÍKin the form of theatre visionary of Rastislav Ballek. A myth of an honest young man, who was forced to get into plunder by harsh and unfair times, and found morality in the very amorality, is part of the collective consciousness of Slovaks. Ballek’s stage becomes a melting pot of kitsch and conceptualism, trash and metaphysics, appellative–emotional acting with performative development
