The third in a series of programs that promote the candidacy of the City of Novi Sad for the European Capital of Culture 2021 will be held at the Ship theatre.
On Tuesday, July 19th, at the Ship theatre, anchored at the Belgrade Quay a theater play “Our place” will be performed with actors Nikolina Spasic and Milan Novakovic, directed by Bogdan Jankovic.
“Our place” is a story about two young people who come from different sides, from the south and the north, and here, in Novi Sad, trying to realize their ambitions. The play is based on the idea that the city is made up of people who live in it, and the essential message is to present Novi Sad just as it really is, especially for people who come to it.
