9th Shakespeare Festival in Serbia – programme
International theatre festival, one of a kind in Serbia, presents contemporary world productions of William Shakespeare’s plays.
It is held annually, in June / July, in the beautiful setting of a castle on the Danube bank in Čortanovci (a village in Serbia in the Municipality of Indjija, the Province of Vojvodina) – in Villa Stanković, one of the most picturesque summer residencies in Serbia, modelled after medieval castles in Lombardy.
The main idea of the festival is to treasure the work of the world’s preeminent dramatist by presenting attractive theatre programme under the open sky, as it was done in Shakespeare’s times. Besides the main programme, the side programme presents a wide range of multimedia and educational contents.The festival was founded in 2014, on the initiative of Nikita Milivojević, one of the most important Serbian theatre directors, after the premiere of his performance of „Henry VI” in The Globe theatre in London in May 2012.
The organizer of Itaka Shakespeare Festival in Serbia is Itaka Art Centre in Indjija. 9th edition of the festival will be held on 1st-4th July. Selected performances will be presented in October and November 2022.
