JoakimInterFest was founded in 2006 on the initiative of the then general manager of the Princely Serbian Theatre, director Dragan Jakovljević, and with great understanding and support from the City of Kragujevac.
Since the founding of the festival until today, over 140 performances from 25 countries of the world have been performed at Joakimfest, in which more than 700 theatre creators have participated.
At the festival, all the prescribed measures will be respected due to the situation with COVID-19 in order to preserve the health of the spectators and participants of the festival. Let’s take care of each other!
Thirty years later
Thirty years is a long enough period to scan this region through topics that theatres and some new young theatre people deal with.
Life Afterwards is my intimate, subjective view of this region and theatre, 30 years later.
Life is sometimes so confusing that you can’t be certain what came first and what came later. By the same token I don’t know whether I’m telling this story to get to the end or the beginning of things.
