Passing of Flame

Festival and Conference

11 – 18. 06. 2011.

In June 2011 DAH Theatre (founded by Jadranka Anđelic and Dijana

Milosević) is celebrating a significant jubilee – 20 years since its founding. DAH

Theatre is the only professional theatre group in Serbia that has been existing for 19


In 1993 DAH Theatre Research Centre was formed, out of need to widen the

theatre's impact and be able to act nationally and internationally. During all these

years, the Centre has realized many projects, performances, tours, Festivals,

workshops, Master classes. DAH Theatre with its performances and different

activities tours around the world and also promotes many important artists and

theoreticians from the performing arts field.

In our culture one of the main issues is one of continuity and endurance.

Thus we consider that the fact, that a certain artistic concept/artistic organization,

can last and inspire many new generations with their work and art, is an important


Passing of Flame – Festival and Conference is a project that will both

symbolically and concretely confirm the importance of the long life of an artistic

group in our culture and wider.

Passing of Flame is a project that consists of both a Festival and a

Conference, whose main themes are passing of knowledge in the field of theater,

the meeting of different generations, the importance of endurance and continuation

in the culture of one country, and how can knowledge, in an art form that exists only

in the moment of the realization of a performance, be documented, passed on to

another and preserved for the future.

The artists that are invited present the most important artists from the

generation of the great theater Masters of our time: Eugenio Barba and

Odin Teatret (Denmark), Yuyachkani (Peru), JillGreenghalgh (Wales),

Rena Mirecka (Poland); Gennadi Bogdanov (Russia). These are artists

and groups that have marked the XX century with their artistic work

and whose impact is still evident in the XXI century. Many of these

artists were part of the famous BITEF festival in our city, thus

connecting our roots and the Festival that has been existing for more

than 40 years.

The second generation is the generation of artists to whom, by work and

existence, DAH Theater belongs to. These are groups and artists that continue

on the work and teachings of the great masters, and present a bridge between

them and the future generations. They also leave an important impact on the

theater scene of today and with their innovative work open new possibilities in

this artistic field: 7 Stages Theatre (USA), Teatar Labor (Germany), Teatret OM

(Denmark), Violeta Luna (Mexico), Plavo pozoriste (Serbia), Grenland Free

Teatar (Norway), Tricklock Theatre (USA), project Brazil (Brazil).

The third generation are artists and groups that directly or indirectly

present a generation that is a continuation of our generation, and is

already very present on the world theater scene, a generation open for

an experiment and something new and different: ArtsSpot Production

(USA), Prodigal Theatre (UK), Fragment Teatar (Switzerland) and

Ansambl Miraz (Serbia).
