This book is not just memoirs of the directors, two companions-in-arms, a wife and a husband, Kama Ginkas and Henrietta Yanovskaya. These are conversations on most diverse themes. Sometimes these are occasional encounters at the cup of coffee, or just at the beach. These are spontaneous discussions of some theater problems at the office of the Artistic Director in the course of a performance; various stories about the rather head-breaking process of performance creation, and many other things. These are uncompromising disputes of two people who had lived for fifty years next to each other and been doing the theater. In other words, this is a phenomenal book. The meeting will start at 7:30 p.m. Free admission.
