About event

Why should I go to the Barnyard?

1. A unique performance by J. Orwell's cult story, which was staged and shown only by the Maskam Raad Theater
2. In Lithuania, the performance is recommended for production in school theaters - as a "vaccination" of young people from bad habits
3. Performance - ecological: all scenery and props are made of recycled materials

Let's warn: a very provocative hard farce with a sharp political and social subtext! But serious about it is easy and fun! And each spectator will be able to see in the heroes of himself. Who are you? Who am I?!

The play "Barnyard" is based on the story of an outstanding writer and publicist, master of the dystopia of George Orwell. This story is a cult (along with the anti-utopian novel "1984") for several generations of readers around the world. The story was published in 1945. It was from her that the world famous glory of the writer began to be called the new Swift.

The story of grotesque and comedically broad, mastery smears depicts the evolution of the consciousness of animals living in the cattle court, as well as the gradual degeneration of revolutionary romance and boundless freedom into dictatorship. The wry word from the story is the expression: "All animals are equal, but some are even."

The performance is based on the first translation of Orwell's story into another language. It was a translation made in 1947 by the Ukrainian political emigrant Ivan Chernyatynsky for "displaced" persons.

The play is an acute satire not only in Soviet but also in contemporary reality. At the same time, there are elements of farce, grotesque, comedy and drama. For example, the figure of the swine of Napoleon, the leader of all peoples, combines the features of almost all the dictators of the 20th century.

Recommended for family viewing with children from 11 years old. For children - as "vaccination": in Lithuania the performance is recommended for production in school theaters - it is for "vaccination" of youth from bad habits.

We are waiting for you in the theater and exhibition hall of the Kiev fortress, the entrance from the Blvd. Lesia Ukrainka between buildings No. 12 and 14.
