Two years ago today, on 16th November, artistic director and selector of our most relevant theatre festival, BITEF, a dramaturge, theatrologist, philosopher, the former dramaturge at Atelje 212 and the former manager of Yugoslav Drama Theatre, a writer and a translator, the author of various dictionaries and anthologies, Jovan Ćirilov, passed away in Belgrade.

His colleagues at Bitef Theatre and Belgrade International Theatre Festival commemorated his death today by laying a wreath of red roses on his grave, cherishing the memory of him as someone who made an enormous contribution to not only Serbian but to international culture as well, and primarily to theatre art.

We will remember him as an extraordinary, courageous explorer, as an intellectual, a creative person, and as a wonderful colleague and friend – as someone who never gave up.
