When Nietzsche Wept
14. Feb 2019.
Hemofarm Foundation has supported the play ‘When Nietzsche Wept’ to point out the importance of mental health and the fact that numerous pieces of art would not have seen the light of the day if they had not been supported by individuals or organisations.

The play ‘When Nietzsche Wept’, based on a novel by Irvin D. Yalom, one of the most popular contemporary writers in the world, was premiered at the Cultural Institution Vuk Stefanović Karadžić on 14 February. The cast includes Ljubomir Bandović, Goran Jevtić, also the director, Katarina Marković, Vanja Milačić, Sara Pejčić and Dimitrije Stajić. The play is a kind of psychoanalysis and speaks about an individual standing out from the crowd, and meeting of three geniuses – Josef Breuer, Sigmund Freud and Friedrich Neitzche, which changed the contemporary understanding of man. The play ‘When Nietzsche Wept’ takes place on two levels, conscious and unconscious, and confronts us with what we are talking about and what we hide, with the human need to be left to another being.

‘For Hemofarm Foundation health is the greatest asset and it has been in the focus of our activities for the past 25 years. At the same time, we also supported projects in culture, education and sports. Neitzche talked about the ’ubermensch’ (the overman), and we in Hemofarm Foundation want to help people around us’, Suzana Đorđević, Director of Hemofarm Foundation said on this occasion.

It is exactly this theatre play that has been used as an excellent channel to communicate the message that it is necessary to actively engage in our health and that it is healthy and productive to re-examine yourself as well as that dilemmas often help you become a better person.
