“WHY? I’M DOING IT FOR THE SAKE OF MY FATHER. WHO IS HE? THE MAN WHO TAUGHT ME HOW TO TIE SHOELACES.”


His name is Vukosav Živković. A Litostroj engineer who retired when I was thirteen. Member of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia. A believer who put up a huge photo of  Tito in our living room. (And took it down when Yugoslavia disintegrated.) He is neither famous nor well-versed in any special skill. He hasn’t been honoured with any special prizes. He is my father. The man who taught me how to tie shoelaces. Whenever I tie my shoes, when I walk around the city or when I dance he’s always present. One way or another. No matter whether I am aware of it or not.

For-Fathers-Sake is the second part of the trilogy on the family constellations. The first part, entitled ‘First Love, Second Time around (Getting over Nace Junkar)‘, I staged in 2009 along with my mother Elizabeta Zivković.” Nataša Živković
