By Biljana Srbljanović, translated by Bojana Novakovic
18 October - 8 November 2008
The war might be over but there are demonstrations in the streets, inflation is out of control, families are rationing food, politicians’ wives are publishing self-help books and kids are left unsupervised in their concrete playgrounds.
At the back of an apartment block, four children recreate the world around them: a world of mum, dad, son, daughter and the family dog. This is the game of Family Stories: Belgrade, a violently skewed family portrait of a civilized nation about to implode.
