Kamerni Teatar 55 was founded in 1955 in Sarajevo, hence the 55 in its name. In that era, there were a lot of theaters in Sarajevo, however they were a bit stale so Kamerni Teatar 55 offered a new and fresh approach, akin to modern European theaters. It was the first theater that had experimental and avant-garde plays in its repertoire.
Every time I go to Kamerni Teatar 55 I feel like I am a part of the play. The chairs form a ring around the stage, which allows a more intimate relationship with the audience. Last time I went there I saw a play called “Radnja na uglu”. It was a drama/comedy. It was really fun to watch. The coolest thing about it is that one of the actors kept breaking character, which was pretty funny.
I also had the honor to watch one play directed by my friend Boris Lalic. We went to school together and he is a talented young writer.
If you want to see something different and a bit less pretentious, Kamerni Teatar 55 is right in the Titova street very close to the Eternal Flame monument.
