 ***

Maja Mirković’s costumes are a sterling study of time, characters, colours, cuts – a great treasure and a high-quality theatrical and artistic taste. It was a pleasure to watch the actors wearing them with ease – all those precisely assembled parts of the costume, which helped them express many hidden layers of understanding of the character and the situation. Masterfully, hats off!

(Goran Cvetković, Radio Belgrade 2 – Friday, December 19, 2014)

Here is the premiere we have been waiting for too long (…) which encompasses directing, acting, scenography and costume design in such a way that finally it is knowledge and skill that are expressed, instead of the deep-rooted charlatanism (that pretends to be talent and as such is expensively charged); a performance whose organs are so well tuned and harmonized to unanimously perform Eden von Horvat’s dramatic symphony (…) Maja Mirković’s costumes are not the clothes-that-make-the-men – she dressed them into living corpses, remains of themselves.

Snežana Trišić is building the play of certain visual, sound and performing power, to which the costume designer Maja Mirković and the set designer Darko Nedeljković contribute significantly.
