The musical Bollywood, written and directed by Maja Pelević and produced by the National Theatre in Belgrade, has been selected primarily due to its innovativeness and the fact that it represents a form of "political theatre" different from what we are used to seeing in Serbia today. This seemingly easy, nonchalant and comically coarse form of "trash musical", which ingeniously toys with kitsch iconography, strings out a completely surreal and yet very realistic imagery of Serbian reality in transition. Moreover, these images are also typical of other economically, politically and ethically ravaged eastern European societies: devastated socialist factories, foreign investors’ speculations, xenophobia, the humiliating position of "cultural workers" who, however, show an utter lack of class consciousness and any other consciousness whatsoever. Without any kind of preaching or enforced ethics, this performance presents a story of a great Bollywood production house which comes into a small east-European border town filled with ethnic tensions caused by the presence of refugees waiting to get into the European Union. The production house came with an idea to buy and convert into one of its studios a closed factory from the socialist period, a building now used by a local theatre whose actors see this unreal investment project as a unique springboard for their international film career.
