The 1990s was a period of acute social crisis marked by armed conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and, at the same time, a period of major transformation of the production system in the performing arts throughout the post-socialist realm. It argues for a more refined understanding
of the social use of the performing arts in this specific context, and attempts to reach a more universal level of comprehension of the ways in which the theatre uses its complex arsenal of expressive resources to respond to extreme situations of social crisis.
