About the play

The play ‘Homebody/ Kabul’ consists of two parts. The first part is a monologue (performed by Dušanka Stojanović) and the second part is what Željko Đukić called a type of choir.
‘We have forgotten about the choir which used to be an essential part of theatrical performance. With this play Kushner brings us back to that period and in a contradictory and paradoxical way indicates that a monologue isn’t really a monologue but a polyphony. He reminds us that there is something monolithic in a choir that we have lost and forgotten. The way in which Kushner achieves the feel of a choir is by mixing different languages without translating them. French, English, German and Russian are all spoken and mixed together. It gives the impression that everyone is talking at the same time and that nobody really understands anybody which in effect transfers that familiar emotion to us.‘
It premiered on 30th October 2014 on ‘Raša Plaović’ stage.
