Theatre “Promena” is a student theatre run by students of the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, which makes it unique in the country. It was founded between 1978 and 1979, and renovated in 2015. As the name of the institution suggests, the artists of the theatre wish to offer the audience something new and unusual that they will not have the opportunity to see in other theatres, and their repertoire will often include new or rarely performed dramatic text. You can find the repertoire on their Facebook page.
