With the scenic and projection design for Around the World in Eighty Days, Nevena is graduating from the MFA program in Scene Design at UT and thus concluding one important chapter of her own journey around the world. She would like to take a moment and acknowledge all those people who were her support and strength throughout – numerous old and new friends, peers, teachers, coworkers and most importantly, family – especially Mira, Petar, and Maja. She thanks them all and can’t wait for all the adventures that await them in the future. Nevena’s recent work at the CBT includes scenic design for A Shayna Maidel, The Open Hand, The 39 Steps and The Busy Body; projection design for The Open Hand; associate scenic design and assistant projection design for this season production of A Christmas Carol, and assistant scenic design for Titus Andronicus. Her other professional credits include: scenic design for The Purple Island (Krusevac Theatre, Serbia), Waiting for Godot (Atelier 212; Belgrade, Serbia), Harvest (Phoenix World Theatre; Kochi, India) assistant art director for a feature film November Man, assistant production designer for feature films Loveless Zoritsa and Redemption Street.
