Theatre, Public Space and City Identity

Milena Dragicevic Sesic: THEATRE, PUBLIC SPACE AND CITY IDENTITY
The aim of this paper is to discuss the possibilities of theater spectacle in public spaces to be imprinted within city memory and to participate in the representation of the politics of remembrance (and of forgetting). Belgrade as a “postmodern” city, city of complex, multiple identities in times of a dissolving wider state identity, of losing its geopolitical significance, is an excellent example for a critical analysis. Raising Serbian nationalism within official identity politics and politics of representation was questioned by numerous independent theater projects of remembrance and community building.
