Tugomer is a dramatic poem about the clash between the Slavs and Germans, an epic and dramatic portrayal of the bloody spread of Christianity in the 10th century. Tugomer, a Slavic prince who is a pagan, finds himself between the Christian and pagan world, between two military formations and offers his hand in reconciliation. He accepts the invitation for negotiations and reconciliation dinner offered by the Franks. But the “reconciliation” is a fatal mistake…

At first sight it seems that Tugomer is a drama on the “former world”. The assessment of worlds and their division into more developed and less developed, superior and inferior, dominant and submissive is the eternal source of clashes among nations also in contemporary world. Tugomer is the herald of a new world, the world of humanity, reason, progress – the world not yet created or discovered by humanity.

Žanina Mirčevska
