»Autumn crocus« – A Roma family tries to find their footing again in post-war Kosovo. During the war, they fled to Germany and lived there for many years. Then they were pushed out and have now returned to their home. The focus is placed on the girl Medlin, who falls into an excavation pit on a poorly lit street and is fighting for her life. On the search for justice, her father encounters corrupt businessmen, frustrated workers and sarcastic bureaucrats.
»Yue Medlin Yue« is a tragicomedy composed of political innuendos and passionately absurd scenes. Six actors and two musicians create a satirical-comical tear-jerking contemporary nightmare on the stage using just a few props. After the war in Kosovo in 1998-1999 and its declaration of independence in the year 2008, the country is still searching for its identity today.
Jeton Neziraj, born in 1977 in Kaçanik, is one of the leading theatre authors and most active artistic protagonists in Kosovo. He studied theatre studies at the University of Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, and worked as artistic director of the National Theatre for three years till 2011. Jeton Neziraj has written numerous screenplays and more than 15 theatre plays that have been shown in Kosovo and in other European countries and the U.S. In 2002 he founded the company Qendra Multimedia, which he heads to this day.
»The performance is full of humor that runs between childish exuberance and bitter satire and yet, to its great credit, sympathy and poetry are never left on the wayside« (Dorian Waller, Der Standard, Vienna, 27.02.2012).
