And suddenly, last summer18+
To the anniversary of Roman Viktyuk and the opening of the theater building!
The Roman Viktyuk Theater invites you to the premiere of the performance "And Suddenly Last Summer", timed to coincide with two events: the anniversary of Viktyuk and the completion of the reconstruction of the theater building on Stromynka.
The year when Tennessee Williams, the largest American playwright of the 20th century, would have turned 105 years old, Roman Viktyuk decided to mark the premiere, having embodied on his most scandalous play.
"And suddenly this past summer" was staged on the Russian stage many times. But none of the productions had the proper resonance, which is worthy of a scenic embodiment of this to an extreme contradictory text, perhaps because no one before Viktyuk did the poetics of martyrdom and redemption in the work of the central line of the production.
Nowhere and never leaving childhood. Eternal youth. Worship of eternal beauty. A leap into the unconscious, the subconscious is unattainable. A journey into the soul of Tennessee Williams, who always embodied in her heroes its terrible depths. The height of desire and purity of desire. Poetic, energetic, epic theater.
Roman Viktyuk in his jubilee year entered the scene of his native theater on Stromynka with a play-revelation about the fate of the creator. The poet, who is waiting for the original predestined death without the slightest hope of salvation. But one of the main paradoxes of the mystery theater of Viktyuk is that he always saves his creators, bringing them to the light.
The production, music and stage adaptation of the play by Tennessee Williams - Roman Viktyuk. Adaptation and translation into Russian - Victor Denisov.
Sebastian died last summer. He was still very young. What happened?
Is it really torn down by the inhabitants of some Mexican town, local criminals?
His mother refuses to believe it! Too foolish, such a death looks ridiculous. She would prefer that the son should be killed if not under more tragic circumstances, then at least more poetically.
Among the relatives is the one who was with Sebastian on that fateful trip. She knows the truth about his death. But her candid confessions nobody wants to hear. On the contrary, they want to silence her.
The family drama is gathering new details, threading on one tragic event all the new conflicts ... Everyone is fighting for his truth. Who will win?
“ The performance is AWESOME! To understand Tennessee Williams is very difficult, almost impossible. Viktyuk revealed his essence like no one before. Actresses Ekaterina Karpushina (zasl artist of the Russian Federation) and Lyudmila Pogorelova (zasl the actress of the Russian Federation) who play leading roles in performance are driving crazy with their skill. They are kissed by God. A performance about the CREATOR WHICH IS NOT NEEDED IN NOW! For 2 hours the heroes say, scream and cry about Sebiacean, who never appears on stage, because he died last summer. To date, out of 17 viewed performances by Roman Viktyuk, this MOST FAVORITE! ADVICE!
