Music, Maps and Moments of War


Check out the following links for a little history, music and insight into the playwright….


For a little insight…
Biljana Srbjanovic’s war diary written during the time of the NATO bombings.

For a little history...BBC has a great interactive timeline on history of the former Yugoslavia as well as a feature where you can see the changes in borders with interactive maps.

For a little music…Several songs are mentioned throughout the play. Here are recordings done mostly by individuals in the former Yugoslavia.
