    Madame Bovary
    Madame Bovary, that eternal character of world literature, is the same Madame Bovary in Nebojša Pop Tasić’s adaptation who both in the time when she was created and now remains Madame Bovary, Emma, who because of her unfulfilled yearning tragically ends her destined role of a country wife, mother, and lover. It is an honestly and compassionately told story about smallness, desperate longing, stupidity, narrow-mindedness, cruelty, comical tragedy.

    A Continental Divide
    The play in question does not concentrate on one climate change issue specifically but instead looks at the fates of two distinct places that are bound together by the devastating consequences that climate change entails. Global populations across the world are affected in their most vulnerable spot – their houses, their homes, their shelters. To showcase that varying and even contrasting problems arise from climate change the play is divided into two sections, two stories – Flood and Drought. The play jumps back and forth between these two narratives and throughout the performance slowly breaks down the fourth wall between the audience and the actors, this way illustrating that the issues and problems at hand are already affecting and will affect each one of us in the very near future.

    A Terrified Soul
    Adapted from Shakespeare's Macbeth and set in an ancient dynasty in China, the play is performed in Huiju Theatre form, by Anhui Provincial Huijing Theatre. Huiju is a very popular local theatre form in Anhui Province, China. It is listed in the national intangible heritage list. While carrying on the artistic essence and traditions of the Huiju theatre form, a lot of experimental renovations have been made to this production. The story of Macbeth was reset in the Chinese Spring and Autumn period (770-476BC). Ziyin, the Chinese hero modeled on Macbeth, goes self-destructively astray due to his lust for power. Unlike the original play of Macbeth, this production is presented in a virtual and abstract style. With singing, music, dancing, fighting, and humorous acting.

    10 Millones is a text written in different moments along the years. It was born as a personal journal until it developed in what it is now, a material for the stage, a weave of narrations, dialogues and monologues where the highest risk in theatre is attempted: to depart from oneself to talk to others, to everybody.

    Shame
    In Israel, jingoistic politics has descended on the theatrical stage, and actors are now paying the price because of their national identity or views. This performance consists of two monologues about career paths and life in the shadow of the theatre, which reflects the Israeli reality.
