A joint project with the Goethe-Institut Kazachstan.
The play is performed in Russian
The author of the play, Falk Richter, is one of the brightest modern representatives of postdramatic theater. His plays are widely and successfully staged in Germany. It is all the more satisfying that director Andrey Lazarev has chosen one of his plays for a production at the Nemetski Theater.
This creative project, which was made jointly with the Goethe-Institut in Kazachstan, is a successful and timely addition to the repertoire of the Nemetski Theater.
The play addresses the hot button topic of the current generation's dependence on social networks. The circumstances of this dependence reveal human imperfection in terms of strength of mind and moral principles.
One of the main themes of the play is the lack of love. And that is exactly what each of us – whether we realize it or not – is looking for in our lives. But people are isolated from each other and there doesn’t seem to be a way of dealing with this. What happens to us if we do not find love or if lose it?
The plot of the play is simple and straightforward. The play is made so that we see the simultaneous existence of all the characters on stage, and their odd interactions with one another, which emphasizes the isolation of each individual and reinforces their loneliness.
The project was created as part of the theater's 40th anniversary. With the support of the Goethe-Institut Kazachstan it was possible to invite director Andrey Lazarev – a former graduate of the German course at the Zhurgenov National Academy of Arts, and a former actor and director of the Nemetski Theater.
