About Dodona Theater


Dodona Theater was established on November 12, 1986, by the Municipal Assembly of Pristina. Rabije Bajrami and Smajl Imeri contributed to the establishment of the theater.

The first show, a puppet show for children “The Forest Belongs to Everyone” was launched on May 16, 1987. It was also this year when Dodona was named as Theater for Youth, Children and Puppet Theatre “Dodona”.

Dodona started producing shows for grownups in the early 1990s – Evening Stage. From this time to the present, Dodona has produced over 35 premieres for children and over 70 premieres for grownups. In the same period, that is in 1992, Enver Petrovci was appointed as the first Head of Dodona.

From that time until 1999, Dodona has showed more than 400 different shows in both stages, children and grownups.
