Performance by Croat theatre highly acclaimed at Edinburgh Festival Fringe

The play titled "Murdered Artists' Society" performed by an amateur theatre group "Daska Theatre and Nomads of Beauty" from Sisak, Croatia, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe has won high acclaims from the audience and critics alike.

The Sisak-based theatre group reported on Saturday that the play had excellent reception at the festival.

The play is tribute to all the artists who have been murdered, tortured and exiled. "The performance takes the form of a scream for the freedom of art and artists currently being suppressed around the world, based on Kharms' and Vvedensky's life and work. A touching, humorous and tragic show performed by three award-winning actors. Extraordinary play as a comeback for Croatia's acclaimed Daska Theatre, acknowledged for its startling mix of political satire, original music and high-octane physical performance. Symbolic anniversary of their very first Fringe appearance in 1986. Nominee for the Stage Award for Acting Excellence," according to information on the festival's web site.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is  an international arts festival that takes place every August for three weeks in Edinburgh.
