...The performance is about creativity, it is about creating the relationships we want. We may call the Sun the Moon, yet it will still be the Sun. In other words, the what is more important than the how. The play teaches us that the true dreams of our heart may come true. That’s it. After all, like any other work of art, theatre is a dream…
Chuk and Gek is the second performance directed by Patlasov at the New Stage. The first one is Noise based on a documentary play by Ekaterina Bondarenko.
The new performance by Patlasov is based on the Chuk and Gek novel by Arkady Gaidar, the writer’s diaries, and documented memories of those who have been prosecuted for political reasons and survived through Stalin’s camps. Those memories were documented by Andrei Sovlachkov and Alina Shklyarskaya, the playwrights of the project.
Valery Fokin’s performance based upon the play by Leo Tolstoy called The Live Corpse continues the series of the director’s current research into the tragic relationship of a man and the soulless reality that drives the character to escaping from the real world.
