“Taming of Darkness”: KROKODIL 2017


553 krokodilThe Regional Literary Festival against Boredom and Lethargy with the Serbian acronym KROKODIL lured again many visitors to its latest edition from June 16 to 18 in Belgrade. The ninth edition of this literary event, well-known also outside the borders of Serbia, was supported among others TRADUKI and the S. Fischer Foundation.

Despite rainy weather, more than 2,500 visitors came to various event formats: readings, talks, panel discussions, and performances under the motto “Taming of Darkness”. Besides renowned writers from the region, in this year the writer Erlend Loe from Norway and the film director Lordan Zafranović from Prague were a part of the program. As always, the amphitheatre in front of the Museum of Yugoslav history offered special atmosphere for evening events. The KRODODIL team looks back on 9 successful years and has already started with the preparations for the festival’s 10th anniversary.
