Dusan Kovacevic was born in Mrdjenovac near Sabac in 1948. He graduated from the Dramaturgy Department at the Academy for Theatre, Film, Radio and Television in Belgrade.
He worked as a playwright in TV Belgrade until 1978. Between 1986 and 1988, he worked as an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts. He has been the general manager of the Zvezdara Theatre since 1998.
He was elected a corresponding member of SANU (Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts) on 26th October 2006, and full member during the Electing Assembly on 5th November 2009.
He was appointed Ambassador of Serbia and Montenegro in Portugal in 2005.
In his plays, there are no sharp contrasts between genres; a character-comedy is interwoven with a comedy of manners, farce or drama, in the same way that happens in real life. As a playwright, he is often compared to Branislav Nusic.
He has written 20 plays and 15 scripts for film or television. He has directed both plays and films. His plays have been performed in more than 80 theatres abroad
