Audience Award


Jury of the Festival at the sitting that took place on 14.10.2009. in Kragujevac, the following decissions were made, unanimously:

1. Joakim's award for the best direction: Salvatore Tramacere and Antonio Pizzicato for the direction of LA PASSIONE DELLE TROIANA, of The Teatro Koreja from Lecce, for well thought out and contemporary reading of classical drama text and impressive audio-visual composition of various artistic elements, from traditional music of Balkan people, through ritual dance untill modern scenic expression.

2. Joakim's award for the best play: The Cherry Orchard, Theatre Kolectiv, Manchester-London, England. The play The Cherry Orchard, in well conceived direction of Aleksandar Dunđerović, he stresses out, in an innovative and original way, universal values of Chekhov s text and places them into a contemporary context of nowadays world that has reduced spirituality to market merchandise. It is a play of strong emotions and clear message, at the same time entwined with melancholy, irony and cynicism.

3. Special Joakim s reward (equally): SERIOUS PLAY! THEATRE ENSEMBLE, Northempton, the USA, for daring, skilled and well dramatically assembled, a mltimedial, socially engaged and neutral approach to the painful subjects that the authors, Milan Dragicevich and Sheryl Stoodley, transformed very successfully and artistically coherent into the play Milošević at the Hague, althought in the world and Serbia as well, there are some distinctively divergent, sharpened and exclusive opinions on that and to the play THE OTHER SIDE, of The Small Drama Theatre from Bitol, in which,young, avant-garde director Martin Kočovski, by using experiences of the dramaturgy blood and sperm, with his courageous assembly from Bitol, succeeds, through a clash of generations, to counterpoints the time when we used to be realistic and when we demanded impossible and a decadent and depressive present in which an individual looses himself in his own loneliness.

4. Joakim's acting awards:
MAUREEN BRYAN, for the role of Madame Ranevsky, in play The Cherry Orchard, of Theatre Kolective, in which the British actress completely evokes the width of a Russian soul, adding to it some of plain English mentality, using the artistic means that are clear, various, emotional and well picked.
To the actors assambly Knjazevsko-srpski teatar for collective performance inthe play Club NewWorld Order, by which they justified the tradition of the oldest Serbian theatre and showed us why THEATROPOLIS in the name of the city points out that they are familiar even with non-realistic structure of the play and that they are capable of performing the play that is complex and contemporary, that gather the experiences of total and political theatre, in their own characteristical way, altogether with the director that follows the tradition of Robert Lepage.

5. Joakim's award for visual effects: to the play THE PATRIOTS, of The National theatre from Uzice. Larry Zappia, the director, reads this classical, yet always contemporary, uncompromised Sterija's text, in a radical, innovative way, placing it on the stage with a descent usage of adequate theatric signs: from Brecht s rules, through plain, yet suggestive spectrum of colours, untill the written messages and songs that do not let down, but emphasize the basic meanings of Sterija s text. The assembly of Uzice s national theatre has achieved the maximum of the meaning with the minimum of scenic effects.

The special acknowledgement of the jury should be given to the Direction of the JoakimInterFest for the organization, hospitality towards numerous foreign and local guests, as well as for sustaining logistic support to the festival from its foundation until today.

6. With an average grade of 9,89, the audience award goes to the host s play of Knjazevsko-srpski teatar  and Theatre Kolectiv The Club New World Order, directed by Aleksandar Dundjerovic.

CAR OF THESPIS


In his own time, Albert Camus wrote that theatre was one of those places in the world where it was possible to be happy. In these days when Joakiminterfest, one of the four of the city's theatrical events, should take place, it seems that there are enough reasons for happiness in Kragujevac, a Theatropolis, and a Serbian Edinburgh.
The artistry of the performers, the varieties of the poetries, the characteristics of the schools of drama and of sensibilities with rich creative abilities are participating in the game of self recognition and theatre recognition.

Joakim's special award
Audience Award


All the decisions of the jury are unanimous.

The jury decided on giving the acknowledgements  to young actors for graet spectrum of artistic abilities, presented by three following realizations:

Lidija Indzova for the role of Hermia in play a Midsummer Nights Dreamof Villiam Shakespeare, directed by Nikolaj Poljakov in the production of The Dramaticno-kuklen teatr, Vraca, Bulgaria.
Maciej Kowalczyk for the role in play The Hunger of Knut Hamson, directed by Jozef Markocki in production of The Teatr Formy, Wroclaw, Poland.
Ivana Pavićevicfor the role of Daughter in play Umetnost i dokolica of Stive Tesic, directed by Nemanja Ranković in the production of The National Theatre from Uzice.

1. Award for Visual Aspects of the Play goes to play An intimate self-portrait of Frida Kahlo of Slavenka Milovanovic Pregelj and Ivane Vujic, directed by The Slovensko narodno gledalisce from Maribor, Slovenia.

Commentary:
The award is being assigned for the remarkable scene images based on complicating and rich play of various visual elements (costume, light, set design, video projection), being in the service of dramatic event, all the time corresponding with the painting of Frida Kahlo.

2. Two Best Actor Awards go to:

1. Dusanka Stojanovic for the role of Esma Halilović in play Ćeif of Mirza Fehimovic, direction and adaptation Egon Savin, production The Belgrade Drama Theatre from Belgrade, Serbia.
2. Ljubomir Bandovic for the role of Salko Halilovic in play Ćeif of Mirza Fehimović, direction and adaptation Egon Savin, production The Beogradski dramski teatar from Belgrade, Serbia.

Commentary:
Dusanka Stojanovic showed remarkable acting transformation developing even the slightest detail of acting expression, by which she bult her character, as well as dramatic situation, in a subtle manner. In her outer rigidness, she was full of love and warmth all the time.
Ljubomir Bandovic, with the splended artistry of his gift for acting, surprizing us, in each moment, with the speed of change of his state and the state of his character and dramatic situation, he actualized his character of Salko, who, despite of his handicap, in the name of all the characters from the play, by the liveliness of his spirit, preserved the strength of hope that, despite such an unsolvable Balkanian faith, everything would be fine after all.

3. Best director award goes to Egon Savin for play Ceif of Mirza Fehimovic in the production of The Belgrade drama Theatre from Belgrade, Serbia.

Commentary:
Director, Ergon Savin, in his prudent and unobtrusive directing procedure, animated the relations between real and surreal, in this universal human drama, regarding director's denoting as well as his work with the actors, with unbelievable easiness exchanging comical and tragical through the play of acting, he told us a story on suffering and love, or to be more exact, on love despite suffering.

4. Best play award goes to play Ćeif of Mirza Fehimovic in the production of The Belgrade Drama Theatre from Belgrade, Serbia.

Commentary:
Play Ćeif is a tragic-comic story on the return of humanity, a reminder of what we feel and what we are in the time that has made each sense in us numb. It offers us a mirror in which we not only recognize ourselves, but we are invited to ask questions to the very same mirror. It leaves us naked, but through that nakedness, it purifies us through truthful testimony of what is the most human in us.

5. Special award goes to Ivana Vujic for play An intimate self portrait of Frida Kahlo of Slavenka Milovanović Pregelj and Ivane Vujic, directed by The Slovenian National Theatre from Maribor, Slovenia.

Commentary:
Director, Ivana Vujic, led, harmoniously and imaginatively, a number of simultaneous flows of directing language, preserving the readability, transparency and coherency of the style at each stratum of the play, and she reminded us, touchingly, of the colours from Frida's pallet we have forgotten.

6. Audience Award
Two equal awards, average grade 9,63
The Teatr Formy, Wroclaw (Poland), play The Hunger of Knut Hamson, directed by Jozef Markocki
The Slovenian National Theatre from Maribor (Slovenia), play An intimate self portrait of Frida Kahlo of Slavenka Milovanović Pregelj and Ivane Vujic, directed by Ivana Vujic.

Awards

Award for the best play
Award for the best director
Two awards for the best actors
Award for the visual effects
Special Award
Audience Award


The Jury decisions were unanimous.
1. Best Play
Rationale:
The Governments Inspector, written by N. V. Gogol, directed by Horatiu Malaele and performed by Comedy Theatre from Bucharest is a play that displays precise stylization, visual and semantic precision, clear stylistic concept and apparent team effort of the ensemble; this is a play that attracts the attention and draws the audience into its inner structure.

2. Best Director
Rationale:
The director awarded by the Jury has modernized this classical text by introducing the grotesque and by minimizing the scenery, all the while managing to harmoniously unite the stage elements. The winner of the award is Mr. Horatiu Malaele, the director of The Governments Inspector, written by N. V. Gogol and performed by Comedy Theatre from Bucharest.

3. Two Actors Awards
Due to the equal number of votes given by the expert jury and in agreement with JoakimInterFest 2007 Board of Directors, the Jury has decided to give out four equal awards.
Among the large number of actors achievements seen during the last week, these four actors were distinguished by their ability to identify themselves with the characters they played. Their ability was only slightly greater than that of other actors, thus, this selection does not diminish the greatness of performances by other artists.
Awardees are (in the order of appearance in front of the audience):
- Miss Sladjana Zrnic for the role of Nadezda in the play Family Stories directed by Jovica Pavic and performed by the ensemble of National Theatre of The Republic of Srpska, Banja Luka
- Mr. George Mihaita for the role of Mayor in the already awarded play The Governments Inspector, written by N. V. Gogol, directed by Horatiu Malaele and performed by Comedy Theatre from Bucharest
- Mrs. Danica Ristovski for the role of Antigone in the play Antigone, written by Bertolt Brecht, directed by Ivana Vujic and performed by the ensemble of Concrete Halle Theatre
- Mr. Ivan Tomasevic for the role of Don Juan in the play Don Juan comes back from the war, written by Odon von Horvath, directed by Vladimir Lazic and performed by Dobrica Milutinovic Theatre from Sremska Mitrovica

4. Award for Visual Aspect of the Play
The award goes to the play whose visual aspect has become yet another dramatic element in an original, unconventional manner. The Jury took notice of the sophisticated elements of the scenery, lighting, puppets and their animators that successfully became a part of an integral dramatic play. These components of stage expression, in the opinion of the Jury, are best pronounced in the play Ivanov, written by A. P. Chekhov and performed by Slovakian Chamber Theatre from Martin.

5. Special Award
By awarding this play with Special Award, the Jury wants primarily to point out the costumes and scenery which are functional, imaginative, balanced in color and which give the notion of rounded dramatic action to this fragmentary dramaturgy. The play that has all these elements is Don Juan comes back from the war, written by Odon von Horvath, directed by Vlada Lazic and performed by Dobrica Milutinovic Theatre from Sremska Mitrovica.

6. Audience Award
The best play of JoakimInterFest 2007, in the opinion of the audience, is The Governments Inspector, written by N. V. Gogol, directed by Horatiu Malaele and performed by Comedy Theatre from Bucharest.

Audience Award


1. The play GALEFYRSTEN from the Little Theatre Dusko Radovic from Belgrade won the award for the best play at the First JoakimInterFest. The director Marc Van der Velden and his actors Goran Jevtic and Ivan Tomic succeded in overcoming the theatre language and told the story for all the times in which we participate. The opening toward the world and the isolation from the rest of the world are just the causes, where the team of the play GALEFYRSTEN found the instruments to describe its own life with and without lies and without the help of video tapes. The international jury thanks for the participating in this kind of performance.

2. NEBOJSA BRADIC, famous director of the Serbian theatre scene, won the award for the best directing at the first Joakim InterFest in Kragujevac 2006 for the play One small death trilogy of Elfrida Jelinek, performed by the Belgrade Dramma Theatre. Nebojsa Bradic opened the door of theatre workshop which should stay open for all the time of this festival duration, which will be lasting for the centuries, at least the jury hopes so.

3. The original thought of the jury was to award only two best actors, but our international jury found the solution to choose four. This was our decision: the award for the best actress went to the young, expressive and gifted actress AJDA TOMAN, starring in Ljubezen, dolga tri dni in tri noci from the Gledalisce Glej Theatre, Ljubljana. The male part of the jury was fond of idea that the world of stage belongs to the young actresses with capabilities similar to Ajda's. These capabilities are the following: expression, beauty, truth and transformation. The female part of the jury had to agree with this argumentation!
Three war friends in the play THE CARETAKER of Harold Pinter, National Theatre from Kikinda share the award for best actor of the First JoakimInterFest. Three best friends, three actors of the only play written by the Harold Pinter, which is not boring, according to Mr. Mardock, a British in our jury, will share honour, but also the money, at least we hope so, in an inn. Well done!!!

4. For the visual effects we decided to award the particulary beauty of the second act of the play Le ultime lune by Massimo Luconi who we used to call Luca Ronconi. This basil in the play Le ultime lune of the Theatre Joakim Vujic discovered romantic kids in us in the visual and spiritual way. We look like a serious world, but believe us, we are such romantics!!!

5. And at the end, with the greatest pleasure, as a president of this international jury, without any influence by severe but fairly Carla del Ponte, i acclaim that the special award at the First JoakimInterFest in Kragujevac goes to the Direction of the festival for the huge work in the organizing of the festival, for the dreams they had to, willing or not, dream with us, puppies. Special thanks to Mr. Dragan Jakovljevic who became a shadow while we were toasting to each other. That is a difficult role.

So, we would like to congratulate to the DIRECTION OF THE JOAKIMFEST on its openess to the world, but we notice, I guess patriotic, that the best plays were from Serbia. What is completely in the spirit of Serbian customs! It does not mean that the next year will not be different! However, the selector has to choose plays for the main program and those for the following. His InterJoakimFest jury asks him to do it!!! Jury composed by Dragana Boskovic (the president of the jury, theatrologist), Snezana Kovacevic (costimografy), Pierre Walter Politz (director), John Murdoch
(play writer) made all the decisions with one accord. Explanation of the special jury of the First JoakimInterFest 2006 Dragana Boskovic (the president of the jury, theatrologist), Snezana Kovacevic (costimografy), Pierre Walter Politz (director), John Murdoch (play writer).

Summery
SMALL BUT BIG



JoakimInterFest, First International Small Scene Theatre Festival was held in Kragujevac at Theatre Joakim Vujic, First in Serbian Court Theater, from October 7th to 14th, 2006. During the Festival 13 performances from 6 countries were presented (England, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia) and the jury decided that the best play was Galefyrsten performed by Little Theater Dusko Radovic from Belgrade, produced by Marc van der Valden.

JoakimInterFest has natural, link with Joakim and JoakimFest, but it is something new, wider, the same-but different! Small, but big. Small forms that go far, said the Director of the Kragujevac Theater and the Director of JoakimFest, Dragana Jakovljevic, at the opening of the Festival.

Vice Mayor of the Kragujevac City, Sasa Milenic, noticed: Over the long years of isolation we became eager of the world and experiences of the difference. Kragujevac Theaterpolis by being familiar with the achievements of the other environments actually enriches itself and searches its identity; her further assessed this very ambitious international exchange of theater gests and signs, cherished deep in the interior of Serbia.
