This Could Be My Street, the new authorial project by the director Anica Tomić and the dramaturge Jelena Kovačić, is the first play dealing with the subject of youth violence in Croatia. It was inspired by the murder of the Zagreb high-school senior Luka Ritz, yet it is not a reconstruction of the event. The questions and the problems that the play raises are directly connected with other cases of youth violence. As such, the play creates its own fictional story. It brings on the stage the characters directly involved in one possible case of youth violence. The play was written primarily for high-school audiences, but it also speaks to anyone who has witnessed violence in any way (victims, perpetrators, parents, children, passersby or the officials). With such an engaged approach the play is trying to open up a space for a better future. After each performance, conversations with the audiences are held in partnership with drama pedagogues of the Zagreb Youth Theatre College and expert assistants of the Luka Ritz Counseling Center. Such conversations open up a possibility for dialogue and the theatre becomes a space of actual social engagement.
