A collaboration between DAH Theatre and Fragment Theatre from Switzerland. In the performance "In the Search of the City", the main topic are invisible walls in our city, made of hidden histories, and taboos tied to our city. The hidden history of our city manifests itself also through the lack of clear information about what happened at certain places and what was the initial purpose of certain buildings in the city. That, above all, is in relation with the buildings that still exist and that changed its function and also buildings that existed before and still exist but the memory of them still present.

The Story of Tea (2006)
This performance takes as its point of departure the classic play by A.P. Chekov "Three Sisters".
The play serves as a reference point ,the frame which holds different stories and topics together. The central theme of the play - the train that will eventually take sisters to their dream place- Moscow, or the situation of  missing opportunities and lost chances, inspired and provoked several important issues that DAH Theatre's version  of "Three Sisters" is dealing with.
In/Visible City (2005)

Alice and Kafka are Dead/Long Live the Rosenbergs (2005)
How do you solve a problem like Ethel Rosenberg? Or Alice in Wonderland? Both women were sentenced to death, one in fiction, one in all-too-real life. Great trials and great literature collide in this ensemble-created co-production with Dah Theatre from Belgrade, which looks to the root of what these stories and other tales of capital punishment from both cultures have in common. As today's headlines often prove, a juicy trial makes for some of the best theatre there is.
