"Who ever I am - I am a turtle"


In Kragujevac a group of 15 youth developed a drama called "Whoever I am – I am a Turtle" which tackles the burden imposed on youth by their surroundings and also by themselves, from the perspective of a group of several typical high school students. Each member of the group is labeled by the rest, and they all feel like they should not show their true self in order to be accepted and respected by the others. Still, each one of them is fighting to show that he/she is not what the others think and is trying in his/hers own way to convey the message of the drama – I have the right to be myself!
