“There have always been and will continue to be different ways of promoting different professions, including writing. I believe that competitions and similar forms of promotion are the best way to open doors for young authors to express themselves, as well as have their work reviewed,” said Bojović.
Peacekeeping Mission is about a young man from Montenegro who made up his mind to allow others to plan his own life. At a crucial moment, when he is wondering about the meaning of life, he enlists to join a mission in Afghanistan in order to play his small role in a global war.
“Essentially, this play is about the absurdity that people nowadays have to face and it is perceived through a prism of a ‘problem’ that the Montenegrin society is currently facing,” said Bojović.
Bojović uses her writing to talk about philosophical, social, and other issues that trouble her at a particular moment. “Of course, writing plays is not just a means of expressing oneself; it requires feedback from the reader and from the audiences. It is an action awaiting reaction and it aims to strike a chord either with an individual or with society as a whole that will raise questions. And this is essentially what I try to achieve through my work,” said the young playwright.
It is important to Bojović to see Peacekeeping Mission performed on some of the “local stages” in the southeast Europe region aside from Theater Epicenter. The jury has forwarded the play to theatres throughout Montenegro.
“If for no other reason, the simple fact that it has won an international competition would encourage the performance of this play here, which would make me extremely glad as this way it could relate to audiences in Montenegro. More than that, even though it was written for the theatre, the play could easily be transposed for television,” said Bojović.
