12 (guest production by the Centre for Theatre and Cinema under the direction of Nikita Mikhalkov)
The Centre for Theatre and Cinema, led by Nikita Mikhalkov, is bringing its production of the play 12 to St. Petersburg. The performance has been arranged in cooperation with the Directorate of the St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum. 12 is based on the film of the same name, and was staged by Nikita Mikhalkov in collaboration with the playwrights – the Presnyakov brothers. The director’s team also included production designer Yury Kuper, composer Eduard Artemiev, and choreographers Lasha Maryhuba and Evgeny Raev. The costumes for the production were provided by Bosco di Ciliegi. The play centres around a discussion by twelve jurors of a case involving the murder by a young Chechen man of his foster father. It is a reflection on freedom, compassion, and the ability to help a complete stranger in trouble. What’s more, it offers a profound deliberation on matters that worry everyone today.
