NETA productions tend to bring together actors from different countries. The Lexicon of YU Mythology is performed in the various languages of the region.
"It has not been easy. We are talking about different generations, mentalities, perceptions of theatre. Every time we had a difficult rehearsal, with tensions and conflict, someone would say that that was the reason why Yugoslavia fell apart. And yet in time, as groups are wont to do, we began to take shape," says Obradović.
The concept of the play being what it is, he was given an opportunity to perform in other languages. "Languages were fantastic. Once I had learned the lines in Slovene and Macedonian, I realized I felt much freer in my play than in Montenegrin. This is probably because these languages for me do not presuppose any kind of frustration which is what gives me more scope," says.
Obradović belongs to the younger generation of Montenegrin actors who have brought new energy to the theatre and, more recently, to the film industry. He is also a member of the National Theatre of Montenegro and is appearing in plays such as Gorski Vijenac (Mountain Wreath, the Montenegrin historic mega-epic), Don Juan and Gogol's Government Inspector, among others.
Obradović graduated in acting from the Theatre Academy in Novi Sad and, thanks to the contacts he made there, he became involved with a documentary-feature film called The Danube Swabians (Podunavske Švabe), directed by Marko Cvejić, which premiered recently in Belgrade.
The Lexicon of YU Mythology was first performed at the EX PONTO festival in Ljubljana and soon afterwards in Croatia, Montenegro, and Kosovo.
