 The project "Suitcase for memories" is inspired by the Bachelor Thesis of the young playwright Nejra Babić and addresses a relevant topic for BiH: the emigration of young people. The aim of the project was to engage young people in a dialogue on the topic of migration through an innovative theatre play „Jedvanosimsoboakalomistobo“, by using the results of anthropological research as well as the official statistics of BiH institutions. 

Since the play deals with existential questions close and important to the audience, the play attracted a lot of interest. The play won fourteen awards at different festivals and is still on the repertoire of the Sarajevo War Theatre.
