International Theater Festival MESS – Scene MESS

The oldest festival in Southeast Europe. Established upon the initiative of Jurislav Korenić in 1960.
Today, MESS operates in its expanded form and consists of four programming units: MESS Festival, MESS Scene, Memory Module and MESS Library.

MESS Festival is traditionally held in autumn and presents over 20 productions from around the world each year. The festival is of a competitive character and this year celebrates its 58th edition.
MESS Scene is a production department of MESS Festival, conceived as a space of theatrical freedom, an intersection of regional and international cooperation in Sarajevo, a place that breathes with variety and richness of otherness.
Memory Module is a multimedia program that dates back to 1996. The main goal of this cultural project is to preserve the memory of the tragic past of B&H, with a special focus on art as a blend of aesthetic and ethical.
MESS Library is an edition translating the world contemporary dramaturgy as well as publishing contemporary B&H drama, with the goal of introducing a wider reading public with relevant drama production.
