  • “Brave and honest theater performance. One of the most interesting theater company from the South Eastern Europe” – Kazaliste.Hr

  • “...a true story that sets an example for all the hope for freedom, happiness and prosperity in the Europe of our days. And the disappointment.” - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

  • “This is not the first attempt to use cultural events to bridge the gap between the countries. Polip, a literary festival in Pristina, first held in 2010, has Serbian writers among those regularly invited to participate.” - The Guardian

  • “…the play is an explosion of burlesque, music and possibly offensive humor; it is simply a riot.” - Prishtina Insight

  • “A Play with Four Actors and Some Pigs...,” […] is a playfully absurd, crude, and incredibly clever portrayal of Kosovo’s political scene.” - The Theater Times

55 shades of gay theatre play in Gjakova

55 shades of gay will be presented in Gjakova in the seventh edition of the comedy festival “Komedia Fest” in the city theatre “Hadi Shehu”.

55 shades of gay is a burlesque story about LGBTI politics in the Balkans and Europe. Local Balkan politicians try to manipulate and deceive EU officials, the humanitarian mercenaries of international NGOs often exploit the homophobic environment to raise funds, so they can implement their social and educational projects [such as workshops and seminars on how to use condoms], while EU officials, using their superior financial and political position, try to subjugate everyone.

In this trinity [Manipulation. Abuse. Subjugation], the question posed by the play is as follows:

Is sexual liberation possible in the Balkans? Or, could the Balkans start a ‘Balkan spring of sexual revolution’?
