The theatre production of “Tartuffe“, a project authored by Igor Vuk Torbica, was co-produced by the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad and National Theatre in Sombor; a contemporary version of the classic play by Moliere that resulted from the project titled “The Comic Elements of Classic Plays”. In the original Moliere’s play, the central theme – hypocrisy and lies – related to religious hypocrisy, in the adaptation of Igor Vuk Torbica, with the help of bold acting improvisations of his cast, focuses on the topical issues in our society presented in context of family. The performance shows our moral weakness, manipulation made possible due to the feeling of guilt, and our acceptance of unacceptable living conditions, as well as our stupidity and lies.
