CARE International invites you to attend the premiere of the theatre play “How do I explain this to my son”, which will be performed on 26th February 2019 at the Youth Center (Dom omladine) in Banja Luka, starting at 8.30 pm. The play, produced by the Centre E8 from Belgrade, directed by Vojislav Arsić, talks about extremism, how it happens and what its consequences are. Such a topic is sensitive in today’s society, and our soil has been, and will always be, perfect for the birth of new extremisms.

For this reason, the play shows personal stories, but also theoretically explains and classifies the factors of extremism.

The aim of the play is to introduce young people to all forms of this problem, to show them that the first step in accepting the difference is acceptance of their own stereotypes and prejudices, which inevitably exist in man. By being aware of our own extremists, we will find a way to deal with them. At least, that is the plan.

After the hit theatre play “Macho Men”, which has seen over 100 performances in Serbia and the region, the Reflector Theater is once again tackling with a topic that aggravates society and talks about taboos that only rare ones dare to speak about aloud.

CARE International, on the project “Men and Boys as Partners in Promoting Gender Equality and the Prevention of Youth Extremism and Violence in the Western Balkans” that started on 1st October 2017 and is supported by the Austrian Development Agency, the OAK Foundation and the Government of Switzerland, together with partners from the region, is working on the projects of youth development, education, violence prevention, healthy lifestyles and gender equality.

CARE International proudly emphasizes its long-standing cooperation with the Centre E8 and the Reflector Theater and the support we have had the opportunity to give to activities related to engaged art.

The interview with the director and actors, as well as representatives of CARE International Balkans and partner NGOs from the Western Balkans will be held on 26th February 2019 at 8 pm in the Youth Center, before the beginning of the theater play.
