“Freak” is the directorial debut of actor of the Studio Victor Ryzhakov Artem Dubra (Solyony in “Three Sisters”, Johanas in “Baal” and others).
The plays of the German playwright Marius von Mayenburg are well known in Russia: The Martyr at the Gogol Center, The Stone at the Theater of Nations, etc.
“Freak” is a modern European parable about “seem, not be”. Lette, an electronic security engineer, is denied an international business trip due to external unattractiveness. To fit, Lette does plastic surgery.
Artem Dubra: “A freak is a performance about a choice that a person makes every minute. Starting from what to cook for dinner, ending with what I believe in and where is this “I” in general. It is clear that each of us is a “freak”. The interesting thing is the percentage of people in these "freaks."
