GRAND-PRIX OF THE FESTIVAL “YOUR CHANCE”
Theatre workshop of Leonid Heyfets (GITIS)
after the first version of the play Vassa Zheleznova by M.Gorky
The performance The Mother after the first version of Vassa Zheleznova by Maxim Gorky is directed by Dmitry Akrish, a Theatre Direction faculty student, and received a high praise from the professors. The performance is abundant with somehow unexpected, provocative and even contradictory elements, which, though, underline the complexity, the high tragedy and the ambiguousness of the interpretation of Gorky’s play.
Dmitry Akrish: «Do we deserve our dreams to come true? Do we have the right to be happy? Maybe, happiness is a myth, does it even exist? Loneliness turns us into predators. And whose flesh is the tastiest? Our friends’ and relatives’».
