Did you know...today is World Theatre Day?
Tuesday 27 March 2012 marks the 50th Anniversary of World Theatre Day, a day on which people around the world are asked to reflect upon theatre and a Culture of Peace.
Each year a prominent person in the industry is invited to share his or her reflections on theatre and international harmony. This year, John Malkovich was invited to send his message:
“May your work be compelling and original. May it be profound, touching, contemplative, and unique. May it help us to reflect on the question of what it means to be human, and may that reflection be blessed with heart, sincerity, candour, and grace. May you overcome adversity, censorship, poverty and nihilism, as many of you will most certainly be obliged to do. May you be blessed with the talent and rigor to teach us about the beating of the human heart in all its complexity, and the humility and curiosity to make it your life’s work. And may the best of you — for it will only be the best of you, and even then only in the rarest and briefest moments — succeed in framing that most basic of questions, ‘How do we live?’“
At the Belgrade we create theatre in the belief that it can enrich our communities and fundamentally change people’s lives for the better. To find out more about how we do this and how you can support the Belgrade Theatre, visit the Support Us section of the website.
