Synopsis: The play ‘Battle of Neretva’, termed as ‘ahistorical meta-drama and anti-spectacle’, endeavours, by using a historical event, to establish historical and geographic relations between different real characters, primarily those of significance, either through family or fate ties, to the performers on the stage. This ‘anti-spectacle’ takes a form of the two actors, Boris Bakal and Leo Vukelić, conversing, in a rather knowledgeable way, about when, how and driven by what military motives, that famous battle of Neretva began in the early spring of 1943.
The tickets, at the price of 3 euro, will be sold at the box office of the Cultural Cantre Kotor on the day of performance, from 10 to 12 a.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m.
Number of places is limited (50).
