The world-famous epistolary novel by the modern French classics Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt (Oscar and the Pink Dame) about a sick child who writes letters to God for the salvation of the soul, at one time broke the hearts of the West.
Dozens of performances in Europe, Canada and America, films on all Continents. This same eternal history is re-read in Ukraine - with an emphasis on our collisions, on our real children.
The performance "Oscar and the pink lady" with Irma Vitovskaya in the lead role and music of "Ocean Elzy" is a story of the incurably sick boy who writes letters to God. The statement is charitable. The creators of plays seek to draw attention to palliative care for patients, which doctors are no longer able to save.
The text of Schmitt is adapted here not in the mono version and not in the duet version (as in some noisy productions in the West and in the Russian Federation). Here, with us, virtually every page of Erica-Emmanuel spreads to different voices. Visualize the unique animation of Andrei Yarmolenko, affect the soul of the songs of Svyatoslav Vakarchuk and revive almost every, even minor, image.
Pink Dame (born Schmitt's fantasy) is the mediator between God and Man. The lady, seeing the boy's torment, offers him an exciting game: let's not save, but in continuation - life. Every day write letters to God. Only 10 letters came from the Oscars.
He is a ten-year-old sparrow, losing his own life, filling the cosmic and personal loss - faith, dream, the message of the Lord. And to him, the poor, it's not so painful. Not so…
Astonishing in acuteness of the sensations of the performance. Onslaught in Kiev, Odesa, Lviv, Kharkiv - and in all performances, the faces and tears of spectators who reborn with the little Oscar and find power of life are open.
