ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
Producing "Bent" in the context of discrimination in Serbia today is, in every sense, especially artistic, a very sensitive task. A play that has triggered certain controversy more than thirty years ago, has been produced many times since. A question about what could another production of "Bent" bring that is new and fresh occursâ¦
In that sense, Andrej Nosovâs concept of direction offers a possible answer. Transposition of a story about the destiny of homosexuals in Nazi concentration camps into a story about life in a ââmodern concentration campââ, the position of homosexuals today, molesting and problems they face, incapability of normal life and running away into ââfour wallsââ is an interesting solution. On one hand, it describes the universality of hatred of all retrograde ideologies towards homosexuals. On the other, it puts a very delicate task in front of the authors: to avoid banality and wrong parallels and to try to produce a show which is not only obviously political, but also reaches the audience on a totally different, very intimate level.
