Kazakh colleagues, visiting Ilkhom this february are not less famous than the theater of Mark Weil.
Ilkhom invited ARTiShOK with two plays, which will be performed in Tashkent from 16 to 20 February, 2016 .
Loving Pushkin is not fashionable, because most prefer cinema to books. However, we need Pushkin, he has a great deal to teach us about humanity and relationships. if you miss the good literature - come February 16 and 17 to see Pushkin Stand up. Actress Veronica Nasalskaya will present a stage version of the novel Eugene Onegin. It’s a modern take on one of the great works of world literature, which continues to be relevant today. The new production of the extravagant and shocking theater group draws the viewer's attention to the fact that we no longer get involved in classical art. Now people looking for inspiration and enjoyment of such famous works as the great Alexander Pushkin's novel Eugene Onegin, seem ridiculous and naive. In the past not having read this work was considered to be shameful, and now it is awkward to even admit having read it.
February 19 and 20 yet another production by ARTiShOK will be performed at Ilkhom- the play Accompanist. The minimalist performance is based on Nina Berberova play, written in 1934 on the basis of documentary and biographical research.
The events of the play take place in 1919 St. Petersburg after the revolution. A talented pianist, who is suffering from hunger and cold, enters the house of a wealthy opera singer. The play stars three women. The director of the performance is Anna Zinoviev. In her interpretation the play "Accompanist" turned tragic, emotional and extremely musical.
The plot - the tragic life story of a girl Sonya , raised by her single mother, a music teacher. She believes her own existence is a shame. After all, she was born out of wedlock. Her father - a former student of her mother. It’s 1919 and in order to survive, Sonia decides to take a desperate step and become the accompanist to the rich and famous opera singer Travin. Her life changes dramatically .
