The Seagull, Satirikon Theatre: Yury Butusov’s frenetic production abounds in an incredible freedom and openness, delving deep into the throes of artistic creation and the anguish of the artist who struggles to find a language of his own.  Chekhov’s characters are in the process of creating their lives, or watching them fall apart, which, according to Butusov, may be a closely related activity.

The Suicide, Theatre Art Studio: Sergey Zhenovach’s adaptation of Nikolai Erdman’s comedy centers around a young, unemployed man desperate enough to contemplate ending it all. As soon as he declares his will to die he finds himself surrounded by a variety of characters begging him to kill himself as a gesture for their cause. The play, originally written in 1928, forms a link in Russian literary history between the satirical mastery of Nikolai Gogol and the post-World War II Theatre of the Absurd.

Uncle Vanya, Vakhtangov Theatre: Rimas Tuminas’ reimagining of Anton Chekhov’s tale about broken illusions and dashed hopes is freed from its traditional trappings, suggesting, instead, that all these isolated individuals are suffering together from the same infection; that these sufferings are the only way to lead a decent life. A Golden Mask Winner for Best Drama, featuring the inimitable Sergey Makovetskiy as Voynitsky.

Macbeth.Kino, Lensoviet Theatre: Yuri Butusov’s pastiche of conflicting styles only touches on the storyline of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, reflecting, instead, both confusion from confronting the myth and the desire to unveil it.
The surrealistic action in the style of David Lynch plunges the audience into a state of subtle sensuousness. Macbeth.Kino is a beautiful nightmare that sends shivers down your spine and makes you feel like staying in it for good.

Drillalians (Episodes I and II), Stanislavsky ElectroTheatre: Alongside earthly reality another civilization exists parallel to it. Drillalia, the land of the Drill, is inhabited by numerous races, and its people throughout history have traveled to and from Earth, leaving signs of genius behind, while opening up their own world to destruction. Boris Yukananov’s visionary modern opera, which perfectly weds drama and music, is an exceptional event in the sphere of new theatre in Moscow.
