Starring: Honoured Artist of the Russian Federation Andrey Merzlikin, Honoured Artist of the Russian Federation Grigory Siyatvinda, Nadezhda Markina.

Is there such a thing as bitter yet heroic laughter? Performances staged by Viktor Kramer, the director of The Forest, have it all: his work involves large-scale and wide-ranging explorations – Kramer is a master of digging into the deepest meanings of a dramatic work. The Forest has never been staged like this before. Towering above the stage, Gurmyzhskaya’s world – her estate, sawmill, pond, gazebo – revolves like the surface of the earth. Like hamsters on a wheel, in an endless, senseless bustle, the protagonists run around in circles until a young man, beaten by life, and his close friend (Andrey Merzlikin and Grigory Siyatvinda) visit the former’s aunt (Nadezhda Markina).

Registration for the event is through participants’ personal accounts.
