Slobodan Dan Paich was one of early members of experimental theater Dadov and one of founding members of the theater group Maska. Later with a group of friends he started his own Pozorista Vatronosa.
This theater initiative was supported by Mira Traijlovic, director of the theater Atelje 212 . She invited Slobodan and the troupe to her theater to rehearse and develop a new way of theater communication towards a performance.
In return Slobodan initiated and redefined the street level windows, at the building of the theater Atelje 212, into continuously changing exhibition spaces. This was done in anticipation and before the temporary installation was recognized as a legitimate art form.
