The CUA drama department also will present its production of “Uncle Maroje” July 11 and 12 at the 55th annual Dubrovnik Festival in Croatia. One of the oldest theater festivals in Europe, the Dubrovnik Festival invites a select group of performers from around the world to participate in the internationally recognized event. CUA’s participation marks the first time that a university theater production has been invited to perform at the festival — a member of the European Festivals Association since 1956.
Along with the play, the CUA drama department will host a daylong conference titled Marin Drzic, Dubrovnik and Renaissance on April 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the university’s Callan Theatre.
Directed by Naum Panovski, an internationally recognized theater director, the CUA production also draws on the talents of well-known Croatian set designer Marin Gozze, who has worked with the Academy Award-wining director Jirzy Mencel, and Romanian costume designer and artist Smaranda Branescu, who has partnered with world-renowned theater directors Liviu Culei, Lucian Pintilei and Robert Wilson.
Both the on-campus and Dubrovnik productions are presented with the support of the Embassy of the Republic of Croatia.
