Performance “IMPULS”/ Performans “Impuls”
  (ENG) _______________________________ (SRB) Performans „Impuls“ u središte pažnje postavlja impuls koji je zajednički svim ženama, bez obzira na njihovu starosnu dob ili zanimanje, a koji sve one skrivaju i potiskuju, svesno ili nesvesno. Ženski porivi, potrebe i želje oduvek izazivaju predrasude i osude, iako iste takve porive imaju i muškarci kojima je omogućeno da slobodno žive sa njima i da ih ispoljavaju.   Lea Jevtić ( rediteljka) - Studentkinja četvrte godine glume na Fakultetu umetnosti u Kosovskoj Mitrovici.
