    A marriage that spurns tradition, an impossible journey on horseback, a brother who defies the grave. Inspired by the Albanian legend as written by Ismail Kadare, DORUNTINE is the mythical tale of a forbidden love and the danger of a promise that can never be broken.

    Blessed Unrest of New York and Teatri Oda of Prishtina, Kosovo bring a ground-breaking, first ever US-Kosovar bilingual theater collaboration to New York City with DORUNTINE, written by Matt Opatrny and Lirak Celaj, and directed by Florent Mehmeti and Jessica Burr.

    Blessed Unrest will be the first American theatre company to host a Kosovar theatre company in the United States. In May 2006, Blessed Unrest traveled to Kosovo to perform their original play Lying, into which they integrated a bilingual Teatri Oda actor. The success of this endeavor led the companies to plan for a more intense collaboration in New York City.

    The arts have the power to break down cultural barriers, and play a critical role in establishing a country's identity. By coming to New York and shedding light on Kosovar and Albanian culture, history, and language, Teatri Oda becomes a proud cultural ambassador for their new nation which declared independence from Serbia last March.

    This project has been made possible in part by grants from Trust for Mutual Understanding, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council/NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, Theatre Communications Group/International Theatre Institute, The Kosovar Ministry of Culture, The US Embassy in Kosovo, with additional funding from New York State Council on the Arts and the generosity of individual donors.
