Towards the end of 2021, stage play Marija Ručara premiered at Cultural Centre Magacin, performed by Hleb Theatre. It emerged from the poem of the same name, once being forbidden and destroyed, written by Aleksandar Vučo and Dušan Matić. Through our program of Special Focus, it was our pleasure to support the development of this stage play, making connections between the position of women workers in 1930s and today, orbiting around the basic human needs of which people are deprived by the capitalist cruelness in diverse manifestations. On this occasion, we talked to Sanja Krsmanović Tasić from Hleb Theatre, who staged this play and performs in it.
