Morfov's "Life Is Beautiful" staged at MNT tours in Belgrade

     Macedonian National Theatre Skopje will tour in Belgrade this 8th December. The Serbian audience will have the chance to see Alexander Morfov's hit production "Life Is Beautiful" staged in Skopje in 2016. Host theatre of the guest show is the National Theatre in Belgrade as the two leading theatres have a bilateral agreement.

     This is the third international tour for "Life Is Beautiful". In 2017 it was presented at the Fadil Hadzic Days of Satire festival. At the closing ceremony of its 41st edition it received the Big prize for Best production, the prize for Best female role (which went to Nikolina Kujaca for her role of Maria Lukanova) and the prize for Best male role (which went to Nikola Ristanovski for his role of Semyon Podsekalnikov). Earlier in 2017 "Life Is Beautiful" was presented at the IV-th Madach International Theatre Meeting in Budapest. 

A Russian black comedy of the twenties, 'The Suicide' satirises the plight of an unemployed man, desperate enough to contemplate ending it all. The play considers the nature of humour; the hearts of the self-centred characters who will use anyone to further their own selfish aims; and the triumph of the individual, who keeps his dignity in a society where the slogan "for each and all" echoes emptily. For Semyon, only the prospect of death can give the individual the freedom to act and speak as he wishes.
