1. From the creators of the dance floor "Three Sisters"
2. Theater "Misanthrope" stands out for intellectual and aesthetic presentation of material
3. Unique symbiosis of music, choreography, strong dramaturgy and bright director's decisions
The new work of the theater "Misanthrope" - the play "Invitation to the execution" based on the novel by Vladimir Nabokov - was already fond of not only the capital's theater public, but it was also enjoyed by spectators from all over Ukraine.
The young and uncompromising theater "Misanthrope", despite its small age, has already found its spectator and firmly occupied its own niche in the Kiev and Ukrainian theatrical stage. Many admirers and critics note that the theater stands out among others for its intellectual and aesthetic presentation of material, while Misanthrope itself insists that their main "chip" was and remains multi-genre.
The actors of the theater "Misanthrope" used to surprise the viewer with their universality, but in the performance "Invitation to the Execution" they managed to achieve absolute mastery in the ability to do everything: dance, sing, play musical instruments, perform acrobatic and plastic sketches, be clowns and buffoons and , at the same time, show the dramatic depth of their characters.
A unique symbiosis of live music, choreography and plastics, strong dramaturgy and bright director's decisions on the verge of revelation - all this the viewer will receive in a harmonious combination with Nabokov's text, the poetic and metaphorical character of which appeals to the most intimate thoughts and feelings of each of us.
The main character Cincinnatus C. falls under the court for "gnoseological vileness" and "opacity." The process of the hero is conducted according to non-existent laws, and the death sentence is camouflaged by the phrase: "With the kind permission of the public, you will wear a red cylinder." In the course of the action, it becomes increasingly clear that the world around us is illusory and represents a set of norms and rules that contradict minimal common sense. The rules obey the parodies of people, the masks - the characters of the play. Follow the universal logic and morals only the protagonist succeeds. Nevertheless, he ascends to the scaffold, where he will have to cut off his head.
Duration - 1 hour 50 minutes (no intermission).
