This is the first edition of Qendra Multimedia’s theater showcase, as well as the first edition of a theater showcase ever organized in Kosovo. Qendra’s showcase 2018 will be held in Prishtina, from 19 – 21 October 2018 and this year there will be shown four plays produced by Qendra Multimedia, including a premiere of a new play ‘Hypocrites or the English Patient’. In this edition, there will be shown as well “Le Pont” play, produced in Paris, which will be opening the 48th edition of theatre festival by “Adriana Abdullahu” Theatre in Ferizaj.
This theater showcase brings as well two discussion panels and a literature and music evening. In this first edition, except for the Kosovar audience, there will be as well as 30 international guests, including festival selectors, theater critics, journalists, writers, directors and theatre admirers coming from all over the world.
Our aim is to make this theater showcase a yearly event. We believe that from the next edition in 2019, the showcase will be extended and it will include as well as plays produced from other theatres and theatre groups in Kosovo. Therefore, we believe that this Kosovar theater showcase is an excellent way to promote in the world the isolated Kosovar theatre. Besides that, this is a great opportunity for festival selectors, researchers, audience and foreign critics to follow, observe and enjoy the theatre from Kosovo and its trends. This first edition of the showcase will be accomplished in cooperation with the National Theatre of Kosovo, Oda Theatre and Dodona Theatre in Prishtina, together with “Adriana Abdullahu” Theatre in Ferizaj.
